How full were the wine glasses? I mean I was celebrating my birthday, she replied.

After another officer found marijuana and rolling papers in her Ford Fusion, she said she may have smoked pot earlier that evening as well, the report said.

Cutshaw was jailed on charges including drunken driving, speeding and marijuana possession, based in part on her own statements.

Making statements such as these as a means to justify not being arrested are unusual in my experience as a law enforcement officer and I believe further demonstrate the suspects level of intoxication, the officer wrote.
