'Hello Kitty' Arrested on Drunken Driving Charge

GORHAM, Maine - Police say a Maine woman who was pulled over while wearing a Hello Kitty costume was arrested on a drunken driving charge.

Gorham police say officers stopped 37-year-old Carrie Gipson, of Westbrook, at about 2 a.m. Sunday because she was driving in the wrong lane.

They say she refused to take a breath test and was arrested for operating under the influence. She was taken to the Cumberland County jail.

Her police mug shot shows her wearing a red and white Hello Kitty costume, minus the doll's mammoth head.

There was no immediate response to a phone message left by The Associated Press at a residence believed to be Gipson's.
