That’s one way to end up on the endangered species list.

Police in Taunton, Mass., arrested 39-year-old Amy Rebello-McCarthy for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of liquor, driving to endanger, and marked lane violation after responding to a car accident at 1:30 p.m.

After arriving on the scene, police noticed a drooling Rebello-McCarthy next to a 22-year-old Marvin K. Kyewalyanga smoking a cigarette near where gas was leaking.

“He couldn’t recall his first or last name as he slurred his way through the conversation. He was feeling a little antsy and decided to move away from the vehicle,” police said.

Upon further inspection, police noticed what appeared to be a firearm tucked in Kyewalyanga’s waistband.  The weapon later turned out to be an airsoft replica.

According to police, Rebello-McCarthy hit a number of mailboxes and a parked vehicle in the driveway of a home.

When the two were arrested and getting taken to the police station, Rebello-McCarthy revealed that she had a bearded dragon lizard hiding in her bra.
