Pubic Enemy #1: Woman Crashes Car After Allegedly Shaving While Driving

Megan Barnes may have succeeded in establishing the most bizarre case of distracted driving. Barnes is accused of crashing into a car in the Florida Keys on her way to visit her boyfriend. Police say that she was driving while shaving her bikini area — as her ex-husband held the wheel from the passenger seat.

Trooper Gary Dunick said that Barnes “was meeting her boyfriend in Key West and wanted to be ready for the visit,” so she had her ex-husband Charles Judy, hold the wheel of her 1995 Thunderbird while she attended to her nether regions.

She had been convicted the previous day for driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license. This was sixth time her license had been suspended.

Police said that the couple drove away from the scene and switched seats, but Judy had telltale burns on his chest from the airbag deploying.

It appears that idiot drivers are not a purely American problem:

  1. How many times I have noticed the very embarassing misspelling of pubic instead of public and I have seen that error at least twice in official Federal documents. I use the word public often and to this minute I try to ensure that I do not misspell it, as I have done a few times before.

    Good play on words for the title–at first I missed it (unless you changed it later)

  2. Wow! I have to admit that I am intrigued as to why she was driving with the ex-husband on her way to meet the boyfriend. Next time maybe she will just pull over or go commando.

  3. This video needs a disclaimer. ‘Do not attempt this while driving’.


  4. “She jumps in the back seat and he moves over,” Dunick told the Citizen. “It was like the old comedy bit, ‘Who’s on first?'”

  5. So what you are saying is, if she was eating Kelloggs Frosted Flakes and killed someone, she would then be known as a cereal killer?

    Shaving the nether while driving. Maybe Rubio can recommend his waxer, heck even pay for it too as it is not his money. I hear Rubio spends everyone elses money very easily.

  6. There are so many things wrong with this story…where to start? Well I could start with the fact that dry shaving the bikini area is going to leave sweet Megan in a great deal of pain. Not to mention the potential for cuts to a rather sensitive area by not paying 100% attention to the task at hand. Oh yes, and then there is the oddity of performing her self grooming for her boyfriend while her ex-husband is in tow and in fact helping her out. Hmmm I think I finally understand the meaning of ” white trash “!

  7. Dear Professor Turley – Sadly, this incident does not rise to Honorable Mention status here in the Florida Keys, especially Key West. Locally, this article hardly raised an eyebrow.

    Props to Officer Dunick. He has really seen it all over his many years of fine service.

  8. When I saw an unassisted woman using a curling iron while driving down I-435 – close to her face I might add – I thought I had seen it all in re driver stupidity.

    I’m also curious as to why this trim job was so important that it couldn’t wait until she got to a stationary bathroom.


    Nothing tastes better with coffee than a really filthy double entendre.

    Except maybe a really good croissant.
