A Minnesota woman reportedly took a creative approach to trying to avoid a DWI charge last week when cops say she blamed Donald Trump for being intoxicated.

Lino Lakes police said a driver was found to be four times the legal limit the afternoon after the election after she allegedly hit two vehicles at a stop light.

The driver said, “I am upset over the outcome of the election and you should let me go home," according to a statement from police.

It didn’t work, the Lino Lakes Police Department said. The driver was arrested and booked for Third-Degree DWI. 

Injuries in the crashes were reportedly minor.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune identified the suspect as 33-year-old Elizabeth L. Lundberg, who repeatedly told them after leaving jail Monday that she'd been drinking but that the Trump comment was a joke.

"Well after I asked if everyone was OK, and I said it sarcastically. It was such a fleeting comment," she told the paper.

Police say Lundberg told them she was on her way home and had just a few beers. However, the incident report said a bottle of vodka was found leaking in her purse.

Lundberg is due to appear in court in January. A Facebook message left for her by InsideEdition.com did not get an immediate reply.
