Kids, don’t try this stunt at home. Texas has the Castle Doctrine. If young Sara Soto had been holding anything in her hands that could have been construed as a deadly weapon, despite the fact that she wasn’t wearing a thing and no matter how good you think you look not wearing a thing, and had the homeowners been armed and jumpy, this past Tuesday could have been her last. Hiding out naked in a stranger’s bathtub is just no way to go out, friends.
A naked woman broke into a house through the doggy door before being found by the owners sitting in their bathtub, police said.
Sara Elizabeth Soto, 25, was busted hiding out au naturel in the Weatherford, Texas, home bathroom at 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday.
And when cops questioned why she was wearing only her smile, she told them she honestly didn’t believe she had done anything wrong.
Sara Soto is reportedly all of 4’11″ and weighs 110 pounds, so she is not your typical home invader. She not only entered the strange abode unarmed, she entered it unclothed. Again, atypical of home-invasion scenarios. She did all this at about 1:45 in the morning. The stories about her adventure don’t mention the role that chemicals may have played, but this blogger strongly suspects that some chemicals played more than a cameo role.
A couple of questions come to mind. At some point that night the 25-year-old woman was standing outside a stranger’s door and could not get into the house using any of the usual means — unlock it with a key, knock, ring the doorbell, etc. So she decided to try the doggy door. The doggy door is not generally considered the proper way for one to enter a house. Apparently she decided that the black dress she was wearing was an encumbrance, as were her undergarments, supposing she wasn’t out on the town commando style. So she took all of them off on the porch, left them outside, and then went into the house which wasn’t hers through the doggy door and then made her way to the stranger’s bathtub.
At what point did any of this strike her as a good idea?
And the second question: What’s Miss Soto’s commenter handle over at Ace of Spades?
