Woman flees gas pump with nozzle and hose

The Nevada Highway Patrol has arrested a woman who was driving along U.S. 395 with a fuel hose and nozzle sticking out of her gas tank.

April Westfall, 40, of Reno, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after she failed a sobriety test, the Reno Gazette Journal reports.

Patrol spokesman Chuck Allen says authorities must now find a service station that is missing a gasoline nozzle and about six feet of fuel hose.
