South Carolina Girl Tries To Evade Arrest By Telling Cops She’s A ‘Very Clean, White Girl’
A young South Carolina woman was arrested this weekend after she drove through a stop sign on the night she was celebrating her birthday.
Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, who is about to turn 33, was pulled over at 1:45 a.m. local time in Bluffton, South Carolina, after she reportedly sped through a four-way traffic stop. She was allegedly driving under the influence and was in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia at the time of her arrest. (RELATED: Reality Star And Porn Actress.

But cops say she tried to tell them she shouldn’t be arrested because she’s a “very clean, thoroughbred, white girl,” adding, “You’re a cop. You should know what that means.”

Cutshaw claimed to have only had two glasses of wine at the time of her arrest, despite having a BAC of .18. She also allegedly told cops that “She maintained perfect grades during all of her school years, was a cheerleader and a member of a sorority. Her partner is also a cop,” the New York Post reports.
But police aren’t buying this list of excuses.
“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,” a police report reads.
Looks like the law might not see color after all.
