Texas woman, 61, arrested after driving a tractor without a permit on July 4th: report


Whether motivated by patriotism or some other reason, a Texan woman who tried to parade without permission on July 4th was reportedly arrested on Saturday.

Laurie Bostic, 61, got into a tractor around 11:30 a.m. and tried to join other participants in the parade in Rockwall, east of Dallas, reported FOX 4 of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Police were called to the scene because Bostic allegedly caused a disturbance, the station reported.
