Teresa Carnahan a 40-year-old woman from Indiana with a warrant for her arrest was stopped for a traffic violation.  Knowing that she had the warrant she tried to think fast and made up an excuse to try to get out of the arrest.

When Carnahan was pulled over by police for her trailer brake lights not working, she asked the officer if she could go to the nearby gas station to “take care of her bleeding” and held up a tampon. While the officers ran her and the male passenger in the cars information she became nervous and admitted to the police that she knew she had a warrant and also that the tampon situation was an attempt to escape the arrest.
