Car trouble

Next time, maybe she should consider taking the bus, instead:
A woman who went to court to pay a traffic ticket drove there in a stolen car and ended up behind bars, authorities said. Clarendon County [South Carolina] sheriff's deputies received a tip that Amber Renee Helton was going to be in a stolen car when she paid the ticket, Chief Deputy Joe Bradham said.

They arrested her as she opened the door of the 2001 Dodge Intrepid on Tuesday morning, authorities said.

Helton, 21, and her passenger, 35-year-old Terry Lynn Alvery, were charged with possessing a stolen vehicle, Bradham said.
It takes either huge balls or incredible stupidity to show up at the courthouse, where there are likely lots of police officers, in a stolen car. I'm leaning toward the stupidity.
