A Bozeman woman “hip thrust” her way into handcuffs early Thursday morning, police said. 

Officers approached Jennifer Markov, 37, at the Town Pump gas station at Platinum and Montana streets because she appeared intoxicated. Officers advised her not to drive the van she had entered.

Markov told the officers that she was a member of the Drug Enforcement Administration. After police reminded her that it’s a crime to impersonate a law enforcement official, they began to leave the area.

But Markov, wearing a tank top and short skirt, left the van and started screaming swear words at the officers and doing what a police report described as “hip thrusts.” Police arrested her for disorderly conduct.

He attempted to break free from the officers but was handcuffed quickly.
