ROSELLE, IL -- When it comes to customizing your car, the possibilities are endless: speakers, wheels, paint jobs and the all-important grille.

Well, one woman in Roselle, Illinois made sure her grille was one of a kind. The woman in question was caught on dash cam driving down the road with a tree stuck in the grille of her car; puts a whole new spin on driving green.

When a cop pulled the lady over, she revealed that she remembered hitting the tree but couldn't recall exactly where.

Cops say the woman smelled of alcohol and failed field sobriety tests. Yeah, really had to go out on a limb to figure that one out.

The Roselle Police Department used the situation as yet another example of the dangers of drunk driving. They shared the video on their Facebook page under the caption “Don't Drink and Drive!” It's received more than 3,000 reactions and counting.

Just goes to show that drinking and driving can have you stuck up a tree without a ladder.
