One Florida woman learned a hard lesson about entitlement last year, finding herself arrested and tossed in the back of a cop car after refusing to leave her father’s vehicle, assuming he’d be her personal chauffeur and escort her home.
“He has the key to the car so I’m just waiting for him to get out of the building, to come drive the car, he just parked us here,” the woman, named Alexandria, told Maitland Police in newly-released bodycam footage shared to the Crime Scene Cam YouTube Channel.
Though at first, officers attempted to reason with her, assuaging her to take “no” for an answer like a reasonable adult — “you know he doesn’t have to drive you anywhere, it’s his car, he doesn't have to take you anywhere if he doesn’t want to,” said one officer — this sound logic failed to resonate.
“I understand, well, he already took me here so I’m in the car, I’d like to go back to my house whenever he’s ready, basically, so I’m just sitting in the car,” she said, sassing the officer in question.
After several minutes of back and forth, including the daughter gaslighting her father into believing he had “early dementia,” another officer finally gave her an ultimatum.
“Alexandria, I’m again gonna politely ask you to get out of the car,” he said. “Things are going to go not your way in a minute and I would prefer them not go down that way.”
“You’re gonna get forcefully taken out of the car, and I don’t want to do that” he continued. “I don’t want us to get hurt and I don’t want you to get hurt, so I really would like you to get out of the car so that we don’t have to force you to get out of the car.”
“Defiance,” she said, confirming that that was her choice.
Yet Alexandria quickly came to regret this decision, lamenting about how the officers were “attacking” her, “molesting” her and “sexually assaulting” her as they ripped her from her father’s car, handcuffed her and placed her into an awaiting cop car — the one vehicle she actually belonged in.
“Stop policing me!” she exclaimed to the police.
So, take it from Alexandria and her criminal record — your parents aren't your personal butlers.
