SAN MARCOS, Tex. — A Texas State University student’s response to losing her license after a DWI is going viral.

Tara Monroe, a junior industrial engineering major, had her license automatically suspended after refusing to take a breathalyzer test following a Waka Flocka Flame concert, according to MySanAntonio. She was charged with a D.W.I. and held on $3,000 bail.

Her father reportedly took her car, and left her with a bike to get around.
