    She is so proud of herself! Congratulations sweet heart.

    She’s all smiles because she knows she will get a slap on the wrist and sent home.

    This isn’t your high school yearbook photo, Toots. Face reality or you’ll face a jury some day.

      I am soooo offended and outraged at your use of the word “toots”. I am going to boycott tootsie rolls to show the man I’m so serious about this

    A future Narcan recipient. She’ll get a dose or a body bag.

      Uhh, Narcan is for Opiods. Which cocaine is not.

        Cocaine could lead to Heroin… what do you do when cocaine isn’t enough?

        • Anonymous on July 12, 2018 at 10:05 am

          Probably not a drug on the complete other end of the spectrum….

          • Frank Ponchorello on July 13, 2018 at 8:43 am

            Depends on the financial situation. Cocaine seems to be a wealthy person drug, generally speaking. Where as heroin is for losers with no money. Once the money runs out, the cocaine runs out, and there needs to be a replacement that isnt very expensive

    i bet your parents are real proud of you

    Yeah. Let’s talk about her shirt and her smile instead of the fact that she’s a crack-smoking drug addict. Had it been a minority every single comment would be negative pro-Trump/right wing extremist garbage. And no, I don’t support either side of the left/right paradigm and I’m a law-abiding taxpaying citizen whose tax money is constantly wasted on drug addict scumbags like her.

    • Otis Scorpio is skeptical on July 10, 2018 at 9:16 pm

      So, on your race-baiting planet, all of the above comments are positive, are they? And you know words like “paradigm,” do you? But without any meaningful ability at reading comprehension or appreciation of sarcasm. Well done. You sound like a right tw@t to me. I’ll bet dollars to donuts you support the left side of the “left/right paradigm.” I’d be surprised if you pay any tax at all.

        Otis nailed it.

      • Jeff Spicoli on July 11, 2018 at 9:21 am

        Otis for the win!

    • Bill Bud on July 11, 2018 at 9:08 am

      Another Racist trolling… Go home bro.

    • Otis Scorpio on July 11, 2018 at 4:45 pm

      It just so happens that I am openly Gay, and I support Trump. My partner supports him too, so please do not stereo type people based on your liberal beliefs

        OK??? Who cares? Are we suppose to feel sorry for you or somethin?

        Yo! This is not the proper forum for stepping out of the closet.

    Always the hot ones…

    Don’t even know that it belongs to her, it was found in the passenger side door. She allowed the search, probably didn’t even know it was there. Lets wait until all the details come out, oh wait that wont happen because then it wont cause outrage and wouldn’t be a good headline. This story lacks a lot of details, we don’t even know if it is her vehicle, if she has a prior record, or why she was pulled over to begin with. Shes probably laughing because she knows these drugs don’t belong to her. WTFK what the real story is.

    • Otis Scorpio is Anti-enabler on July 11, 2018 at 2:15 pm

      Excellent points. Except for the nuggets of suspected crack found in her purse. But that’s probably just cookie crumbs or something, you know how these cops are. And the same thing probably happened back in 2011 when she got arrested for possession. And I’m sure that case for assault earlier this year was just a big misunderstanding. I mean, look how happy she is. She wouldn’t assault anyone.

      Otherwise, you are on the right track. Take note, crackheads! Putting your pipes on the passenger side of the car will probably fool a SOMD judge. You’ll be out in no time. Just keep those cookie crumbs out of your purse!

    • Anonymous on July 11, 2018 at 3:05 pm

      Do your own research on case search in the future. For now I will help you out. She has dozens of traffic violations, an assault just last month, another drug charge, an expired protective order, and someone with her name has pages of prior civil suits against them that total into the thousands. In almost all criminal and traffic cases she didn’t pay her fines on time or comply with her probation so she had warrants and her licenses suspended. At some point the judge is going to have to say enough is enough and give her some real time or she will learn nothing and will be lost for good.

    What a real SHAME to her, her family, her grandparents and to her entire Heritage. She did what she desired to do and brought SHAME to all who know her.
    Instead of work, college, grad school, marriage, family, Church, etc. her future will now be controlled by an addiction that controls her.
    No longer a Productive member of Society but just another body that will eventually end up in yet another a tragic death.
    Drugs flowed in part & parcel to the Iran deal, unsigned by Congress but rather the UN; however they came, it was HER intention to USE.

    God help her and all involved in this HORRID Life choice.

    The whole time you’re getting booked the C.O,’s are talking to you, it’s a routine for them, and they also joke occasionally. Sometimes you laugh and ‘click’, there you are, laughing in a mug shot. Stuff Happens.
