Alicia Walicke of Cedar Park was charged with misdemeanor theft after allegedly lifting a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 from a Shell station and proceeding to down it outside the establishment.
The 22-year-old told responding officers that she wanted to get busted and taken to the Williamson County Jail.
"Walicke advised her boyfriend was arrested earlier that evening by Cedar Park Officers and it was her fault so she wanted to make things right and go to jail," according to an arrest warrant, the American-Statesman reported.
Police have arrested Walicke in the past for theft and assault.
She was taken into custody and then released after posting a $5,000 bond. It's not clear if Walicke's plan worked and she was actually able to see her boyfriend.
