Do not drink and drive......or smoke a joint.....

South Carolina police say a woman who sped through a stop sign and was slurring her words allegedly used her race, intelligence and cleanliness as reasons she didn't belong in jail.

Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, 32, was charged with a number offenses, including drunken driving, speeding and marijuana possession, after an early Saturday traffic stop in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Police say a Breathalyzer test showed Cutshaw's blood-alcohol level at 0.18 percent. A person is considered impaired if their BAC is .08 percent or higher, according to South Carolina law.

During the course of the arrest, Cutshaw gave a number of reasons why she shouldn't be jailed, some of which were used as evidence of her intoxication, according to police records obtained by the Associated Press and the Island Packet.

Among the statements Cutshaw made to police:

She is a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl."
She was a cheerleader and in a sorority.
Her partner is a police officer.
She had good grades, was in the National Honor Society and graduated from a "high accredited university."
At the police station, Cutshaw allegedly used her race and cleanliness as a reason she didn't belong in jail. An officer, who was also white, questioned why that would matter.

Cutshaw reportedly replied, "You're a cop, you should know what that means." She also said the officer should know her meaning "based on the people that come in this room."

A dashcam video of the arrest shows Cutshaw begging not to be jailed and calling herself a "pretty girl," according to the New York Post. In the video she also expressed worry that the arrest would "ruin her career.”

Cutshaw told police she drank two glasses of wine. When asked how full the glasses of wine were, she reportedly replied, "I mean I was celebrating my birthday."

During the arrest, police say they also found marijuana and rolling papers in her car, and Cutshaw admitted she "may have" smoked earlier.

I think she's confused on the effect being clean will have on being arrested.
I mean if you gotta put a educated white girl in the back of your patrol car. Who are you gonna pick? One that just showered or one that smells like stinkbait???
Maybe slick will wiegh in...

You don't always get your rathers. I've had to stop and roll the windows down many times. I've had them let loose with every bodily function know while in the back and front seat. Had to rewrite reports because of puke and mud stains. Back then those back seats weren't the hard plastic like now. Just regular material. When they are drunk and obnoxious they are all about the same.

Yep. In this case mother and son have been in and out of jail several times since that started.

Looks to me like someone that made a mistake, and is being used for news outlet clickbait at her expense. I'll bet if she looked like me, it wouldn't have even made the local paper, let alone national news. I thought the media was supposed to first do no harm? Maybe let the trial play out first?

Exactly what I was thinking. I assume a lot of people say stupid shyt when they're drunk and about to get arrested. I'm not sure how "reporters" get this info or how it becomes a story, but I do know WHY.

She was driving drunk and probably stoned also. She should do at least year in the pokey. She very well could of killed someone.

About 17 years ago a drunk in the back of a cop car ate his own underwear. Thought the cotton would absorb the alcohol I guess
