Nov. 1, 2012 at 4:31 PM

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Police in Alabama said a report of a potential dead woman in a sport utility vehicle was actually a drunken Halloween reveler passed out in her makeup.

Birmingham police said they received a report around 8:15 a.m. Thursday of an apparent shooting victim slumped over the wheel of an SUV at an intersection. They responded to discover the woman was passed out drunk while dressed up as a pregnant zombie, AL.com reported Thursday.

Police said the woman was wearing white face paint and was covered in fake blood.

"You can see why someone thought she had been shot,'' one officer said.

The woman was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence.
