South Carolina Woman Claims to Be Too 'Pretty' for Jail
“Please don’t make me go in there,” the woman pleaded with officers in a now-viral video.
Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw begged for mercy after being placed under arrest in South Carolina recently.
“I’m a pretty girl," she told police in Bluffton. "Please, don't make me go in there.”
Cutshaw, a 32-year-old real estate agent, was allegedly pulled over for speeding through a stop sign and later arrested when cops say she failed a field sobriety test.
Video shows her sobbing as she was placed in the back of a police cruiser, rattling off the list of reasons she shouldn't be placed behind bars.
“I graduated from a really good, a really good university. I was almost the valedictorian. I graduated with a 3.8 in my high school and got a scholarship to my college. I was an all-American cheerleader. I mean, I didn't miss a beat my whole life. My whole life, I didn't miss a beat,” she said.
Cutshaw's eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and her car reeked of alcohol, according to the police report. She was given a field sobriety test and allegedly told the officer she had two glasses of wine to celebrate her birthday.
“You ruined my whole career. Please. I've never been arrested. I've never been to jail. Please, I don't want to know what it's like. I don't want to know what it's like. I'm a pretty girl. Please, don't make me go in there,” she said.
Police said the Breathalyzer test showed her 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.
Cops also found marijuana and rolling papers in her car, the police report states. She admitted that she “may have” smoked earlier, according to authorities.
She faces a slew of charges, including driving under the influence, disregarding a stop sign, speeding, simple possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
At the police station, Cutshaw called herself a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl,” according to the police report.
An officer then asked her “what that had to do with anything," the report states.
"You’re a cop, you should know what that means,” she allegedly replied, according to the report.
She was booked into the Beaufort County Detention Center and later released, according to court records. Cutshaw also lost her job at the real estate agency for which she worked.
