Cheri Tenney, a resident of Seminole, FL and an apparent fan of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, was arrested Saturday, July 4th, after repeatedly smashing her SUV through her own house. 

According WFLA and the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, witnesses claim an extremely drunk Tenney, hit part of her garage while trying to back out of it. She then returned to the car an hour later, revved the engine and barreled through the front window, straight out the back of her house.

The 46-year-old then put the SUV in reverse, backed through the demolished wreckage and parked the car on the front lawn.  

Authorities were called and Tenney was found waiting in her demolished house, partially unclothed

She was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer, according to the Tampa Bay Times
