The woman was also allegedly drinking wine from a Pringles chips can.

Texas police responded to an unusual drinking and driving call, after Walmart staff reported a woman drinking wine out of a Pringles can while riding an electric shopping cart.

A witness said the woman was riding on a cart typically reserved for customers with disabilities while dressed in a blue jacket and black trousers.

Police told the newspaper that employees told police that the woman had been riding around in the store's parking lot since 6:30 a.m. while drinking the alcoholic beverage. Around 9 a.m. police arrived to the Walmart on Central Freeway for the call.


Employees asked the police to ban the woman from the store.

The newspaper reports that police found the woman at a nearby restaurant and told her she was banned from that Walmart location.

Jail records do not indicate that the woman, whose name was not released, was arrested.
