A Florida woman with the name “Crystal Metheney” was recently arrested after police accused her of firing a so-called “missile” at a car.
An arrest report flagged by the Guyism blog on Tuesday, said that 37-year-old Crystal Metheney was arrested by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office in May on weapons charges of shooting a “missile” into “an occupied vehicle.”
The report did not say if Metheney had fired a bottle rocket firework or some type of larger, more dangerous “missile.”
Metheney was released after posting $5,000 bail. She also has a previous arrest for marijuana possession, but no charges related to crystal meth.
The Broward-Palm Beach New Timessnarked that Metheney had joined the ranks of other badly-named Florida residents. Earlier this year, Edward Cocaine was arrested for the possession of Xanax pills. And a woman named Brittany Boozel has crossed paths with Florida law enforcement at least six times.
