an Oh Myyy Property

During the first week of August 2018, 32-year-old Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw was pulled over after driving through a 4-way intersection at 60 mph, roughly double the speed limit in that area, around 1:45am. When approached by the officers, she gave them several unusual reasons why she should not be arrested.


Cutshaw reportedly tried to talk her way out of an arrest by saying "she had 'perfect grades her entire life,' had been a cheerleader, was in the National Honors Society, had attended a 'high accredited university,' and that her partner is also a police officer."






Perhaps most offensively, Cutshaw also told the arresting officers she was a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl," and "I'm a white, clean girl." When the cops asked Cutshaw what that had to do with anything, she responded:

You're a cop, you should know what that means.





The police immediately suspected Cutshaw was intoxicated due to the smell of alcohol in her car. She told them she had had two glasses of wine with dinner. They asked her how big the glasses were, and she responded:

I mean, I was celebrating my birthday.



A breathalyzer test quickly revealed Cutshaw's blood alcohol level to be at 0.18 percent, more than double the legal limit in South Carolina. Her efforts to resist arrest were recorded and will most likely be used against her in court, according to the arresting officer:

Making statements such as these as a means to justify not being arrested are unusual in my experience as a law enforcement officer and I believe further demonstrate the suspect's level of intoxication.



Cutshaw was charged with "driving under the influence, speeding, disregarding a stop sign, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia," and is currently being held at Beaufort County Detention Center.

The first note came on Friday reading, "You're a terrorist." The second arrived Tuesday saying, "I will kill you." It sounds like something out of a horror movie, but it's something that happened in a real 5th grade class.
