One Pennsylvania woman's apparent affection for the undead has led to some unforeseen consequences. Yardley Joy Frantz allegedly ran into a man and his nephew with her car around 7pm on Friday. When the man's son came to help and confronted her, she reportedly zapped him with a stun gun before running, reports the AP. Allentown police say Frantz was promptly arrested after witnesses spotted her easy-to-track-down "ZOMBIE" vanity plate. (The Morning Call adds that witnesses also took note of her outfit: pajamas.)

Frantz's defense: She doesn't know who was driving her car at the time. The hole in her defense: Her passenger at the time told cops she was indeed behind the wheel. She's free on bail and faces aggravated and simple assault charges. (More zombies stories.)
