ALBANY, Ore. -- A barefoot woman walking along I-5 jumped on top of a disabled vehicle and crushed the car's windshield while two people sat inside, according to police.
Authorities arrested Victoria Dawn Lohmann, 24, of Aumsville on Saturday and booked into jail for first-degree criminal mischief and other charges. Investigators said they found Lohmann with what appeared to be a controlled substance and sent that substance to the crime lab for testing.
The incident began Saturday afternoon when two women, ages 61 and 53, were driving northbound and ran out of gas near Albany. As they sat in the vehicle arranging for gas to be brought to the car, Lohmann approached the vehicle without wearing shoes or socks. Lohmann's pants also dropped, exposing herself, before she left across the freeway, according to an incident summary provided by the Oregon State Police.
Lohmann then returned to the car shortly afterward. The women said Lohmann approached the car on foot, got on top of the hood and began to jump up and down while the women were reporting the incident to authorities. The Oregon State Police says Lohmann then jumped on the windshield, caving it in before running across the interstate.
Law enforcement officers who responded to the scene quickly found Lohmann and took her into custody without further incident. Lohmann was treated for minor cuts to the feet hands and face that police say occurred when she was damaging the vehicle.
Along with the criminal mischief charge, authorities also booked Lohmann on two counts of recklessly endangering another person and one count of disorderly conduct in the second degree.
