A strange drama came to an end in Memphis early Friday morning when a woman accused of squatting in a $3 million mansion was arrested after being pulled over in a white Jaguar. Tabitha Gentry, aka Abka Re Bey, was taken into custody along with her 13-year-old daughter, who was also in the car, according to local TV station WMC.

The station reported that police had planned to storm the mansion and evict Gentry, but it proved unnecessary after the woman was spotted in her car. After Gentry's arrest, a Memphis SWAT team sawed through the padlocked gate and entered the mansion with search dogs. Nobody else was found on the grounds.

WMC said Gentry had posted a sign on the mansion's gate saying that the bank cannot own the home and that her "indigenous ancestry grants her the deed" (Gentry claimed membership in a Moorish National group). Police apparently disagreed.

Gentry's bond has been set at $2 million, and she faces a judge on Monday. She has had legal problems in the past, including allegedly assaulting law enforcement. The charges, noted WMC, were not prosecuted.

The opulent home is set on three acres and features seven bathrooms and a pool. When news reporters asked her why she chose that particular home to live in, Gentry said, "Why not? It's a beautiful house."

Telling us it has 7 bathrooms doesn't mean much, could have at least specified how many square feet, if anything.
My parents house is 8000 square feet. Has 4 bathrooms, 2 dining rooms, 3 living rooms, 4 bedrooms and a huge pool inside the house.

I hope she enjoys her new home in prison.
