The woman, a vegan, is identified as 26-year-old Judith Moriah Armstrong.
The police tracked her down by the feather trail she left along the road, but she refused to leave her house until they produced a warrant. She spoke with police through different windows in her home.
Initially she told the cops it was all an accident but soon admitted to hitting the chicken truck on purpose, killing the driver and hundreds of chickens whose only crime was their dancing abilities.
She said she plowed into the chicken truck because she is a vegan--won't eat meat because it's unethical to "make one's stomach into a graveyard for critters," she said.
Four other vehicles driving behind the chicken truck were hit when the truck spun out, throwing the driver into a tree and running over chickens like an anti-fowl terrorist attack in Europe.
Armstrong said she was sober when the police arrived, but she admitted to taking "a couple of shots" when she got home. Police tested her blood-alcohol level at the jail and she blew a .089, which is higher than the legal limit.
Armstrong is now facing charges of hit-and-run, aggressive driving, killing people, vehicular chicken slaughter, driving under the influence and obstruction.
Because of the fact that she does not reside in a sanctuary city, she will have to appear in court.
