This teenager drunkenly got her head stuck in an exhaust pipe and to add insult to injury – ended up getting a telling off from the police for it too.
We’ve all done something silly after a few too many beverages and for 19-year-old Kaitlyn Strom that meant testing out whether or not her head would fit inside a stranger’s truck exhaust pipe.
At the end of her scientific study, Kaitlyn discovered she could indeed fit her head inside it, the difficulty was getting her head back out again.
She was stuck for 45 minutes at the Winstock Music Festival in Minnesota, eventually being cut free by firefighters using an electric saw.
‘We were just all having fun and I saw this big exhaust pipe and I was like “hey, my head could probably fit in that”,’ Kaitlyn told the Hutchinson Leader.
‘So I tried it. It did fit, but it didn’t want to come back out.’
But as soon as she tasted freedom, she was cited by the McLeod County Sheriff’s Department for underage drinking.
She then had to apologise to the truck’s owner.
‘I remember getting my head unstuck, and I just looked at him and apologized, and he said “no, I’m just glad you’re OK. Don’t worry about it”,’ Kaitlyn said.
She and the pipe have since become borderline celebrities in their town.
After the incident, she posted a photo on social media with the sawed off exhaust pipe with the caption: ‘Yeah I’m the tail pipe girl, whatchu know about it? #winstock2k18kickedmyass.’
The pipe has now been put on display in Minnesota pub The Darwin Tavern.
