Woman tells police she's Beyoncé Knowles after being arrested for joyriding
This week, a woman made a claim to police that she was actually the pop sensation, Beyoncé Knowles, after being arrested for joyriding.
According to court documents, 48-year-old Surena Henry, who hails from Las Cruces in New Mexico, allegedly gave her name as ''Beyoncé Knowles'' when apprehended by police, after she refused to pull over at a traffic light when asked to do so by law enforcement.Take a look at this video of Beyoncé's stunning performance at Kobe Bryant's funeral:
Henry was then arrested after driving home and hopping out of the stolen car. She was later positively identified after having her fingerprints taken at the Doña Ana County Detention Center. Apparently, there was already an outstanding warrant for her arrest, after she failed to appear at court on unrelated prior charges.
Per the Huffington Post, Henry was later questioned by the officers about her bizarre behavior. She eventually told her arresting officer that she had found the keys to the car inside the vehicle and decided on a whim to take it for a spin, and added that she didn’t stop driving when she saw the emergency lights because she didn’t feel like it.
As a result of her actions, Henry has now been charged with unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, as well as concealing her identity and resisting or obstructing arrest.
