Well, it would appear that Ariel grew tired of having to listen to Sebastian’s babble and decided that it’s high time she went exploring the world. And so, after leaving the relative safety, the little wannabe mermaid ended up in Fresno, California, right in the middle of a crowded street as the Fresno Police Department recently declared that an unidentified woman was discovered wandering on the street claiming she’s a mermaid.
Being a police officer isn’t an easy job and finding yourself in a potentially life-threatening situation is a reality most of them have to face when signing up for the job. However, sometimes, police work does have its bright side.
Recently, a police squad from Fresno, California, had to deal with a most unusual case. Remember Ariel, the cartoon mermaid who made a deal with the witch Ursula in order to walk the Earth and see what people do? Well, it would seem that a real-life Ariel was spotted in town not long ago.
The police officers who made this rather peculiar discovery told the reporters that they felt that something was wrong right from the very beginning. During a routine patrol along a fairly crowded Fresno road, two police officers spotted a woman walking in the middle of the road, looking disoriented.
Upon approaching the seemingly confused woman, the officers saw that she was almost naked and looked like she fell into the water. One of the officers told the reporters that the woman looked totally fazed, and she had no idea where she is or who she is, for that matter.
The officers carefully approached her and asked a couple of questions to determine what happened to the potential mermaid. When they’ve asked her where she had been, the woman said she spent time in the water. However, that was the only piece of relevant information the officers could get out of her.
When the cops asked her if she knows her name, the woman calmly replied that she is a mermaid who goes by the name of Joanna. Regrettably, the real-life Ariel was not able to say how she ended up in the middle of the Fresno road or why she was wet.
Another peculiar fact is that the Jane Doe of Fresno has webbed feet. The Fresno Police Department asks anyone with information about the person to contact Detective Paul Hill. The woman weighs around 150 pounds and is about 5-foot-4.
