A woman has allegedly stolen a bottle of wine worth £2.40 in the US in order to get arrested and see her boyfriend in jail.
Alicia Walicke was charged with misdemeanor theft over the alleged 3.99 US dollar theft and freed on a 5,000 dollar (£3,000) bond.
Police say she stole a bottle of wine from a Texas gas station. An arrest affidavit says police found the woman outside the business drinking the wine.
It says she told police she wanted to see her boyfriend, who was arrested hours earlier, and told them she wanted to go to jail.
Police did not identify the boyfriend or say whether she got to see him.
