Police reportedly saw her move her right arm to the center of the car. The officer asked for her license and registration and noticed she was nervously shaking while obscuring part of the center console with her hand. The officer noticed a pipe used for smoking crack cocaine in plain view and asked her about it.

she's guilty by association having a crack pipe on the dash board. it's seems she might have been setting herself up for help by being caught, just a thought.

you people are so quick to trust the police. I'm not saying there all bad but plenty of them will smug or exaggerate on police reports. you can't just assume what is told to you is exactly how everything happened. assuming she guilty just because you read it on the Internet is ignorant .

John She has done something wrong, as far as ignorant i think not i raised a lawyer and their is a judge in my extended family what is your credentials.

so because your child is a lawyer your the genius on this. all I'm saying is jut because the police said it happen the way it did doesn't mean that's how it's happened. I was once beaten by a police officer who then wrote in the police report that he broke up a fight between me and one of my friends. and it is innocent until proven guilty. nothing has been proven yet and you all are hanging her. and honestly mark you sound ignorant just by saying that you are not since their are certain professions within ur family. I myself being a lawyer did not but that out as my defense. I just said what I was thinking. wasn't trying to hide behind anything and trying to claim that I have credentials just because I have a lawyer and judge in my "extended family" that makes them have credentials not you.

John Read my other comments on this issue,she is guilty by association I clearly wouldn't want here around or guiding my children as a special ed teacher,you sir are the same ,you are twisted anyone who dosen't agree with you is ignorant you think like the police.You did get one thing right about the police, similar incident happen to me in westport fall of 2010 .i let an officer rip into me . but he came back with his head between his legs when he found out who my family was , i also made report of it. And then let it go, i don't have time for it.If you are a lawyer fight the good fight like taking on our gov for exploiting illegal workers within the system you work . but i bet you won't because of the money.
