So embarrassing, mom! A Florida woman named Jennifer R. Crosby, 43, pretended to be her 22-year-old daughter when she was pulled over on Saturday, Nov. 1. Unfortunately, the rare aging disease that she copped to didn't get her out of a ticket.

Indian River County Sheriff's Office Deputy Colby Smith pulled over Crosby because of her broken Ford Ranger tail lights, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun. Crosby, however, was more nervous about her suspended license. When asked for her registration, she replied "she did not have her license because she forgot her purse."

The rapport between Smith and Crosby didn't end there. The Florida resident then identified herself as Christina R. Topp and said she was born on March 16, 1992. "Immediately I was suspicious because the driver appeared significantly older than that," Smith noted in his report.

Indeed, but Crosby had the perfect explanation for that. Smith added: "The driver could tell I was suspicious and went on to tell me that she has a medical condition that makes her age faster."

The mother's fictional story quickly fell apart once Smith accessed her information on his database. She eventually confessed and was arrested for driving on a suspended license and giving a false name. She was booked in county jail and remains behind bars with a bond set at $4,000.
