Cops arrest these two on suspicion of DUI, but that's just part of this weird story

Meet Karen Dowdy and Thomas Prather, as seen in the mugshot here.

Dowdy and Prather are in trouble with the law after a series of events resulted in a beat up car and a fire, according to a report by WPSD-TV.

This is what happened, the Graves County (KY) Sheriff's Department told the TV station:

Authorities received a call that said a car had crashed and was on fire. When they arrived at the scene, witnesses said the two car occupants had fled the scene.

Sheriff's deputies  caught up with the pair, and arrested them both. Dowdy was arrested on suspicion of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of intoxicating beverages, among other things; Prather was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and "false swearing," which under Kentucky law alleges he told a lie.
