Lauren Cutshaw told the police that she's too pretty, clean, thoroughbred and white; she shouldn't go to prison.

People felt the woman was displaying "bratty entitlement".

Lauren was pulled over for not stopping at an intersection. She then failed physical sobriety tests as well as a breathalyzer test.

After a quick search police also found her in possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana, according to reports by Heavy and Inside Edition.

When Lauren realised she'd be going to jail, she quickly tried to give a list of reasons why the police shouldn't arrest her.

She told police she was celebrating her birthday and that she is a white, clean girl as well as informing them that she went to a good university.

When asked what being "white and clean" had to do with the arrest, she simply said the policeman ought to know since he's in the police.

Despite her listing all the reasons she shouldn't be arrested, Lauren was still taken in. She has since been released.
