It takes a special kind of person to become widely beloved soon after being arrested for DWI, but when you’re stripped of your driver’s license and stick it to law enforcement by rolling around campus on a hot pink Barbie Jeep Power Wheels, you get people back on your team in a hurry. That’s exactly what Tara Monroe, a 20-year-old Texas State student, did.

Tara refused to blow into the breathalyzer during a field sobriety test after leaving a Waka Flocka concert, because of course it was a Waka Flocka concert — I swear that dude plays every fraternity party in the country. Her license was of course suspended. But you don’t need a driver’s license to cruise around town in a motherfucking Power Wheels.
Her father drove to San Marcos from Kingwood, her hometown, to strip her of her vehicle, leaving her with a bike to get around.
“Riding a bike around campus sucks,” she told MySA.com. “Like really sucks.”
No one respects bikes-to-class students. That’s some serious nerd shit.
Tara bought the Barbie Jeep off of Craigslist for $60, from a little girl named Charlene — a name Tara chose for her Jeep. You can currently see Tara rolling around the Texas State campus in Charlene. Pictures and videos are turning up everywhere.

Tara is enjoying her local celeb status.
“It goes pretty fast when it’s just me, so I usually make them (her friends) walk behind me like parents taking their kid out to play,” she quipped. “I’m just happy everyone thinks this is so hilarious.”
Solid mugshot, too.
Love this girl..
