A New Mexico woman was arrested after she stole a car then tried to convince police who caught her that she is the superstar Beyonce Knowles.
A police officer spotted the woman identified as Surena Henry in a stolen car and tried to conduct a traffic stop, the Las Cruces Sun News reported, citing court documents.
However, Surena Henry ignored the officer and drove home, the report said. The officer gave chase and caught up with her when she parked outside her home.
When the officer confronted Henry, she reportedly refused to give her real name. She claimed to be the Beyonce.
Police had to use fingerprints to properly identify her.
Surena Henry later told officers that she found the keys inside the car and decided to take it for a joyride, KTSM-TV reported. She reportedly said she didn’t feel like stopping when she saw the emergency lights.
She was charged with unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, concealing identity, and resisting, evading or obstructing an officer, police said.
