A New York woman is facing a DWI charge after allegedly crashing her car while drunk driving. The twist? She was only wearing an unzipped jacket when she did it.

Catherine Giaquinto, 36, crashed her car into a New Jersey stone wall and drove off Friday, New Jersey police reported.

Though police said they found her with only a leather jacket on, Gianquito denied being naked when asked why she was driving in the nude, WTSP reported.

Soon after she was stopped, police asked her to put on a dress they found in the back seat of her car. After 10-minutes of struggling, Giaquinto managed to put it on inside out and stepped out of her car, Sgt. John-Paul Beebe said.

Once dressed, the woman was asked to perform a series of field sobriety tests, but failed to keep her balance or even listen to Officer's instructions, Beebe told WTSP.

Giaquinto was then taken into custody and charged with driving while intoxicated, refusing to submit to breath testing, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, careless driving, failure to wear a seat belt and a documentation violation, WTSP reported.

Giaquinto was released a few hours later to a sober adult. Her vehicle was impounded.
