A teacher in Keller, Texas is arrested after confronting police during a routine traffic stop.
WiredPRNews.com – A second grade teacher at Willis Lane Elementary School was arrested during a confrontation with police after she was stopped for speeding. As reported by WFAA News, Emilee Crow was on her way to school when the incident, which reportedly could have resulted in a mere ticket, occurred. During the altercation, which was recorded on audio by police, Crow became angry and shouted “I’m a freaking teacher and usually, usually you guys have some idea about that,” as quoted in the WFAA report.
During the10-minute ordeal, Crow reportedly threw her driver’s license and insurance card on the ground and attempted to leave. When the officer instructed her to park, Crow used profanity and told the officer she didn’t have to park right there. The officer is quoted as responding, “You’re setting a wonderful example right here in a school zone being a teacher cussing at me and yelling at me,” which Crow responded to by screeching her tires and fishtailing back into the spot where she was parked, almost hitting the officer and his motorcycle.
The officer is further noted to have said that when he handcuffed Crow he smelled alcohol. Crow admitted to drinking alcohol the night before, but was not charged with driving while intoxicated. Crow was subsequently placed on administrative leave, and is said to have told Channel 8 News she was not in her right state of mind at the time of the occurrence.
