Woman Wearing Hello Kitty Costume Arrested on Suspicion of Drunk Driving

Usually when folks think of Hello Kitty, they think about that little cat with the iconic red bow. You know ... something like this.

But you probably don't think of this: HLN reports, "Police in Maine arrested a woman. She was dressed as Hello Kitty while allegedly driving drunk."

Yup. According to Portland's WGME, 37-year-old Carrie Gipson was arrested early Sunday morning in Gorham, Maine, on suspicion of driving drunk and in the wrong lane. The police even provided a photo of the costume's head.

As you might've guessed, she was wearing the getup for a Halloween party, according to the Portland Press Herald.

So how does Gipson stack up to other costumed versions of the cutesy Japanese Hello Kitty character?

The resemblance is uncanny.

No word yet on whether Gipson was blasting Avril Lavigne's "Hello Kitty" when she was pulled over or if her car was pink and emblazoned with Hello Kitty cartoons, but we'll let you know if we find out.
