    Woman tells police not to arrest her because she's a 'clean, thoroughbred, white girl'

    ATLANTA (AP) — A woman seen speeding through a stop sign at 60 mph (97 kph) told officers they shouldn't arrest her because she's a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl," police said.

    Her eyes glossy and bloodshot, Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw was slurring her words and a breathalyzer showed her blood-alcohol level at .18 percent, according to police in Bluffton, South Carolina.

    But Cutshaw, 32, told the arresting officer she shouldn't be jailed because she was a cheerleader, a dancer and a sorority girl who graduated from a "high accredited university."

    Taken to the police station in handcuffs, she described herself as a white "thoroughbred" and "went on to say 'I'm a white, clean girl,'" the officer wrote in his report.

    "I asked what that had to do with anything?" wrote the officer, who also is white.

    She replied, "You're a cop, you should know what that means," and, "You're a cop, you should know based on the people that come in this room."

    Also, "she repeatedly stated, 'my partner is a cop,'" and said she'd been trying to get to her boyfriend's house when she was pulled over early Saturday.​

    ^^^^ This.

    I'm sure there are any number of examples that could be found to indicate white privilege in police interactions. This incident, in which the woman was arrested, does not seem to be one of them. If anything, this incident could be used by something trying to argue against the idea of white privilege.
