OCALA, Fla. -- A woman found half-naked in a car on the side of the road has been charged with DUI.

Karen Drake, 51, was arrested in Dunnellon. Marion County deputies say they received several calls about her car blocking portions of Terrace Road late Sunday night.

According to the report, the responding deputy says Drake was surrounded by "mounds" of her personal belongings and a dog. When asked, she stated she was now homeless.

The deputy noted that she was naked from the waist down.

Drake told the officer that she urinated on herself earlier and had removed her clothes.

Deputies say she failed a field sobriety test and refused a breath test at the jail. Her dog was placed with animal services.

How very sad for her and the poor dog. So many homeless people with animals. As bad as I feel for her, the dog is better off without her. Hopefully someone will adopt the pup and she won't get it back.
