Pennsylvania woman found overdosed in car wearing Cookie Monster costume

WEST NEWTON, Pa. — A Pennsylvania woman wearing a Cookie Monster costume was arrested this week after police allegedly found her overdosing in her car.

WPXI reviewed a criminal complaint that said Rachel Martin was slurring her words and under the influence when she dropped her 9-year-old daughter off at another home.

The person who lives at the other home called 911. When police arrived, they found that Martin’s daughter was only wearing yoga pants and a T-shirt with no socks or shoes when she was dropped off, even though the temperature was in the low 40s.
