Halloween, which used to be mainly a holiday for young children, has increasingly become associated with drinking and partying. For example, a woman in Maine was arrested for DUI, wearing a Hello Kitty costume.
A traffic stop early Sunday morning in Gorham led to a drunk driving arrest for a Westbrook woman wearing a Hello Kitty costume, according to the Gorham Police Department.
Around 2 a.m. Sunday on Mosher Road, police say they stopped 37-year-old Carrie Gipson for driving in the wrong lane. A post on the police department’s Facebook page said the officer thought he had stopped Hello Kitty, but it was Gipson.
Gipson was arrested for OUI refusal and taken to the Cumberland County Jail.
