A Texas woman was arrested on Friday for stealing a bottle of $3.99 wine with the hope she'd see her jailed boyfriend, police said.

Alicia Walicke, 22, of Cedar Park grabbed a bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 from a Shell gas station and then sat outside drinking it waiting for police to arrive, according to police.

“Walicke advised her boyfriend was arrested earlier that evening by Cedar Park Officers and it was her fault so she wanted to make things right and go to jail,” according to the police report.

Walicke, who has a prior arrest for biting a Cedar Park police officer, was released after posting $5,000 bail.

No word on whether or not she ever saw her boyfriend.
