(Aug. 24) -- A Florida woman has given new meaning to the term "internal medicine."

Law enforcement officials say they saw a bag of prescription drugs fall from between 22-year-old Elizabeth Athenia Progris' legs after she showered in a Martin County jail on Aug. 13.

For Progris, the cat was out of the bag (and vice versa) when a deputy noticed a plastic baggie plummet "from her genital area to the floor by her feet" as she dried off, according to's Off the Beat blog.

Progris, a "dancer/housewife" who was arrested earlier that day on a charge of probation violation, had reportedly told authorities that she was not carrying any contraband.

But officials determined that the bag contained Xanax pills.

Rhonda Irons, a spokeswoman for the Martin County Sheriff's Office, told AOL News that Progris' discharge carried its own charges.

"She had two open warrants for violation of probation on a DUI, and violation of probation on a petty theft," said Irons. "Then she got possession of a controlled substance and introduction of a controlled substance."
