MARION COUNTY, Florida — Police may hear a lot of creative excuses from people hoping to avoid speeding tickets.  But a north Florida woman’s excuse is one they may have never heard before.

Mandy Ramsey says she didn’t stop for Marion County police because she was topless!  

Police say the 35-year-old ran a stop sign and crashed into a tree when a patrol car tried to pull her over. Ramsey says she was en route to surprise her boyfriend.

She was booked for fleeing and eluding law enforcement and released on a $5,000 bond.
