Florida police say a woman wearing only lingerie tried to run over an officer who woke her while she slept in her car.

No one was injured, but according to WPTV.com, police allegedly had to break out a window to subdue 45-year-old Suzanne Morales, of Boca Raton.

The incident occurred Monday morning in the parking lot of the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton.

Someone who saw a scantily clad woman inside a vehicle, called the Boca Raton Police Department at about 9 a.m., the Sun Sentinel reports.

According to Browardpalmbeach.com, responding officers suspected Morales was drunk because they could smell alcohol. Westbocanews.com reported the woman's car windows were rolled up, so it remains unclear how officers were able to determine the source of the odor.

The officers reportedly knocked on one of the car windows. Morales allegedly refused to roll down her windows or exit the vehicle. It was at that point, police say, that their investigation took a dangerous turn.

Morales, according to WPTV.com, backed her car up, nearly hitting an officer and scraped another car in the mall parking lot before her vehicle came to a stop.

After breaking out the rear window of the vehicle, police took Morales into custody and charged her with aggravated assault and obstructing an officer without violence.

Morales is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
