Footage recently released by the Florida Highway Patrol shows the March 11 arrest of Montana Fishburne, the 25-year-old daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne. It got weird. Fishburne was reportedly stopped after she allegedly rear-ended another vehicle. She later took breathalyzer tests, showing blood alcohol contents of .17 and .18, The Miami Herald reported.
The officer begins the investigation by having Fishburne acknowledge that she had an open container of wine in her car. He then tried to get her to take a field sobriety test, but she gave the officer a hard time, claiming that an ankle injury kept her from standing on one foot for too long. She then tried to get kinder treatment from the officer, bringing up politics and ethnicity to appeal to him.
“In the situation we are going through with Donald Trump, as a Latino American to another Latino American, I would appreciate if you can … show me the exercise correctly so I can do it correctly,” Fishburne said. “That really makes me feel better because I don’t like the political situation in America. That is what I’m about.”
At that point, the officer decided he had enough to arrest Fishburne for drunk driving. “Can I ask you why?” she asked, before saying she had to pee and threatened to do it right then and there. And then she did it right then and there. “I’m not tripping, I’m f***ing ratchet,” she declared.
According to the Herald, Fishburne moved to Fort Lauderdale two years ago, and was working as a stripper after spending time as a porn star. She is reportedly out on $2,500 bond.
