After getting a DWI, this college student decided to ride her Barbie Jeep to school instead

College Girl Gets DWI, Drives Barbie Jeep Instead

She's a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world...sort of.

Texas State student Tara Monroe has opted for a 12-volt, battery powered Barbie Jeep to ride around her college campus as her primary mode of transportation. Refusing to take a breathalyzer test after a Waka Flocka concert, Monroe's father stripped her of her license and access to a vehicle, leaving her carless to get around school. Next best bet — Barbie Jeep.

After seeing an ad on Craigslist for $60, Monroe figured this is way better than riding a bike to school. According to San Antonio Express-News, the car's name is Charlene, after the car's previous owner, because every car needs a name.

Monroe's story has gone viral and students are campus are excited when they see her pass by. Just check out some of the pics the posted to social media:

She told San Antonio Express-News that she was super happy she made the choice of the Barbie Jeep instead of some lousy bike. "This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame. Basically, it was the best decision I've made in college, yet."

It's safe to say she learned her lesson, and if you are going to go down, might as well go down in style.
