Florida Woman’s Drunken 120 MPH Joyride Ends In Fingernail Attack On Police

Florida Woman’s Drunken 120 MPH Joyride Ends In Fingernail Attack On Police Pinellas County Sheriff's Office

A Florida woman who got drunk and went on a joyride, racing around St. Petersburg at 120 MPH, is under arrest for her stunt — but she didn’t go down easily. In fact, Brittany Bianchi became “violent” with the Florida Highway Patrol trooper who took her into custody, clawing his hand with her long fingernails and digging them into his hand.

She could have killed someone.

A trooper with the Florida Highway Patrol said that Bianchi was seen driving a Mercedes at more than double the posted 55 MPH speed limit when he pulled her over, Yahoo! News reports.

When she got out of the car, dashcam footage showed she was irate and defensive.

“You have no proof that I was drinking,” she told the trooper. “You have no proof that I was doing anything wrong except for speeding, and all that is just a reckless driving charge. So everything you’re doing right now is just to inconvenience my life, for what?”

Bianchi went on to tell the officer that she has a 7-year-old child at home before insisting she hadn’t had anything to drink.

She wasn’t going to go peacefully.

After digging her fingernails into the arresting trooper’s hand, Brittany Bianchi was put into the back of the patrol car.

Camera footage showed her trying to open the partition separating the front and back seats while in handcuffs even though the officer closed it.

“Are you trying to fight me?” the trooper asked. “Remove your hand.” 
Bianchi then responded that it was her “right” to have it open.
