Watch: GOP Judiciary Candidate Caught Begging Cop For Special Treatment After DUI Arrest
New footage released by Oakland County, Michigan police shows judicial candidate Julie McDonald begging officers to let her free after being caught drinking and driving because it would look bad for her image.
According to The Detroit Free Press, McDonald was arrested last month by a Royal Oak Police officer who quickly detected the scent of alcohol from inside the car.
The officer questioned McDonald if she had been drinking. She admitted that she had drunk the night before. The officer then asked her to perform a sobriety test which included blowing into a breathalyzer. She was caught with a .102 bodily alcohol content which caused her to be put under arrest.
Once she was inside the police car, she started begging the officers to let her go because she’s running for office.
“I’m running for an office right now,” she said. “This will f*ck me up really bad.”
“There’s not a lot of discretion I have with something like this,” the officer replied.
“No, I understand,” she said.
McDonald was subsequently charged with operating while intoxicated, littering and no proof of insurance.
