Woman steals wine to see jailed boyfriend

Cedar Park - A woman allegedly stole a bottle of $3.99 wine to get arrested and see her jailed boyfriend.

Alicia Walicke was charged with misdemeanour theft and freed on $5 000 bail on Friday. Jail records did not list an attorney for the woman.

Police say Walicke stole a bottle of wine from a Texas gas station on Wednesday. An arrest affidavit says police found the woman outside the business and drinking the wine.

The affidavit says she told police that she wanted to see her boyfriend, who was arrested hours earlier, and told them she wanted to go to jail.

Police didn't immediately identify the boyfriend or say whether the woman saw him.

Police didn't immediately return messages on Saturday.

Reading the comments I got hope for our country. We have compassion and, also very important, a SENSE of HUMOUR.

Wrongly supposed to be a so-called love story! When in actual fact, its the behaviour to the early start in alcoholism! Imbecilty of woman who's mind and body not exempted from the effects of alcohol... Being overlooked is the probably of a love child born with the syndrome called - the foetal alcoholic syndrome - born to chronic alcoholic mothers!
