(Scroll down for video) A police officer in Illinois, pulled over a woman who was seen driving with a tall tree stuck to the grille of her car.

Police later released the amazing dashcam video, showing the woman driving down the street with the 15 foot tree lodged vertically in the front grille of her car.

Roselle police pulled over Mary Ann Christy about 11:00 p.m., after receiving reports of the woman driving with the unique accessory on her car.

The 54-year-old woman of Schaumburg, told the officers that she had driven a few miles and she did “not remember where” she hit the tree. The officers noticed that the airbags of her Lincoln were deployed.

Christy, who smelled of alcohol, refused a breathalyzer test, according to police. The Roselle Police Department posted the video on Facebook and it went viral.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. The tree was cut out of the car, which was then impounded.
