Tara Monroe uses Barbie Jeep to get around after DWI “Video”

Tara Monroe has been riding in a pink Barbie Jeep as her main vehicle ever since she received a DWI for refusing to take a breathalyzer test after a Waka Flocka concert.

Confused locals have been uploading hilarious snaps and videos to social media, captured when they spot the straight-faced, RayBan-wearing 20-year-old riding around in the bright pink, battery-powered kiddie car.

Monroe, a Texas State University industrial engineering student, was automatically stripped of her licence in a DUI arrest when she refused a police breathalyser test after partying at a hip-hop gig in March, My San Antonio reports.

Her father took her vehicle and left her with a bike to get around. But that’s just not how his daughter rolls.

“Riding a bike around campus sucks. Like really sucks,” Monroe said.

So the young renegade browsed Craigslist and found the perfect and legal solution for the bargain price of AU$71: the Barbie Jeep.

“When we drove up to buy it … (they) asked where the little one was to test drive it to which I replied, ‘I am the little one,’” she said.


Before long, Monroe was the newest — and possibly oldest — recruit of the Barbie girl way of life, and named her new vehicle ‘Charlene’ after the little girl who owned it before her.

Scooting at 8km/h, Monroe sits snug with her 160cm-tall frame and leaves onlookers in baffled fits of laughter wherever she rolls.

But Monroe said she wasn’t expecting the web to blow up over her plastic ride, saying friends “weren’t even surprised because I do stuff like this all the time.”

“This is the best way I could have gotten my 15 minutes of fame,” she said. “Basically, it was the best decision I’ve made in college, yet…”

“I’m just happy everyone thinks this is so hilarious.”
