Michele McLaughlin, a 25-year-old Florida woman was jailed early Wednesday morning after she allegedly woke up an apartment complex when she ran outside in her panties, honked her horn and pulled a fire alarm.
According to police, officers were dispatched to an Orlando apartment complex when neighbors reported that a woman was continually honking her horn and had activated a fire alarm.
Officers arrived to find McLaughlin, who wasn’t wearing pants and appeared intoxicated.
When officers asked Mclaughlin why she was causing a commotion at 4:30 in the morning, she stated that she went out to her car but was unable to find her way back to her friend’s apartment. She went on to say that she honked her horn in an attempt to get her friend’s attention.
Witnesses told police that McLaughlin honked her horn for 20 minutes, then went to the second floor and tried to open every apartment door before pulling the fire alarm.
McLaughlin was booked into the Orange County Jail and charged with preventing or obstructing fire-suppression equipment.
