Woman says she shouldn’t be arrested as she’s ‘pretty, thoroughbred and white’

A woman who police pulled over for drink driving and speeding tried to convince officers that she shouldn’t be arrested as she’s a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl."

Dashcam footage shows Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw appearing to slur her words with bloodshot eyes when police asked her to blow into a breathalyser in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Speaking to the arresting officer, the 32-year-old argued that she shouldn’t be sent to prison as she was a dancer, cheerleader and a sorority girl who graduated from a "high accredited university."

When she was handcuffed and taken to the police station, she then went on to describe herself as a white "thoroughbred" and that she was "a white, clean girl," according to the officer’s report.

The officer, who is also white, said in the police report: "I asked what that had to do with anything."

She replied: "You’re a cop, you should know what that means.

"You should know based on the people that come in this room."

Cutshaw also repeatedly stated "my partner is a cop" and that she had been trying to get to her boyfriend’s house when police stopped her on Saturday.

The real estate agent added that she had two glasses of wine at an upscale restaurant, according to police.

When asked how big the wine glasses were, she apparently replied: "I mean I was celebrating my birthday."

When another policeman found marijuana and rolling papers in her Ford Fusion, she said that she "may have smoked pot earlier that evening" as well, according to the report.

Cutshaw was jailed on charges including drunken driving, speeding and marijuana possession.

The officer said in his report: "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."
