|Michelle Watson's mug shot went viral after the Smoking Gun posted details of her recent arrest.|
Today, the slammer.
Tomorrow -- shopping for a publicity agent.
Michelle Watson, 24, has achieved fame -- or infamy -- after getting busted for super-extreme DUI, kneeing a cop in the groin, then posing for a mug shot like she'd just gotten off a roller coaster.
It's the irony of this mini-story that attracts us -- the pretty, exuberant girl in the orange jumpsuit is also the violent, cussing drunkard in a police report published by the Smoking Gun.
Cops witnessed Watson driving recklessly near Prescott College on Grove Avenue before pulling her over, says the report. Once out of the vehicle, she began dropping f-bombs and screaming at the officers, then resisted their efforst to cuff her, kneeing one officer in the groin as he grabbed her purse.
Police had to restrain her legs to stop her from kicking a patrol car. Then, at the police station, Watson smiled and gave two thumbs-up during her mug shot.
