A real estate agent was arrested in Manhattan for allegedly stealing a cab and driving drunk, according to police.
Kinga Tabares, 27, a broker for the national agency Douglas Ellman, was visiting the city from Los Angeles.
When he went inside to report the situation, Tabares allegedly got behind the wheel of the car.
“The defendant got out of the backseat of the taxicab and got into the driver’s seat and drove the taxicab away," according to court papers obtained by The New York Post:
Prosecutors reportedly said when police caught up to Tabares, she had a strong order of alcohol, slurred speech and vomited out the window of the car.
She was taken to the hospital and refused a breathalyzer test, according to reports.
Tabares was released on bail and appeared in court on Thursday. She may face additional charges.
Tabares was charged with grand larceny, unauthorized use of a vehicle, DWI and refusal to take a blood alcohol test.
Her lawyer Lance Fletcher told The Post: “My client denies the allegations.”
Assistant District Attorney Casey Conzatti said: “The People may consider an offer of a plea to driving while intoxicated and not grand larceny.”
