Police Body Cam Win!  Barely-Dressed and Intoxicated Stripper Epic FAIL! ~ Miami Woman Stopped for Speeding is Double Dog Dead on Bribery, DUI, Open Container & Possession of Marijuana Charges due to Unequivocal Police Body… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 26 y/o Margaret Garcia.  That’s her mug shot below…

Maggie is a SoFlo exotic dancer who was stopped by a Miami-Dade County Police Officer for speeding in the early morning hours of June 19th, 2016 in the area of Northwest 79th Street and 27th Avenue.

When she was stopped Maggie was wearing little, which is not a crime, but she is alleged to have earned herself a boatload of charges by doing a lot, including intentionally further exposing her cleavage and brazenly offering up cash to the police officer. 
The entire incident was captured on the officers body cam (you can see and hear a digital recording of the encounter by clicking here) and, if you are Margaret Garcia, then the recording is nothing shy of brutal.
Audio from the video recording captured the exchange with the officer asking a partially undressed Maggie for her driver license and vehicle registration.  Video shows that instead of producing the requested items Maggie immediately pulls out and appears to attempt to hand over a wad of cash.  In fact the following verbal exchange initially ensued:

PO:   “Ma’am that’s money.”
MG:  “I know.”
PO:   “Why are you giving me money?”
MG:  “How much do I owe you?”
PO:   “You don’t owe me any money. I asked for your license and registration.”
Shortly after the initial encounter the officer smelled alcohol on Maggie’s breath and that observation was coupled by an open container of alcohol in plain view (an infraction) and a spilled bag of marijuana which prompted the officer to conduct a DUI investigation.

PO:  “Have you been drinking?”
MG:  “No.  What do you want?  I just wanna go home”
PO:  “Alright.  I need you to put the money back in your purse and turn off your vehicle.”
PO:  “You reek of alcohol…”
MG:  “I don’t care.”
PO:  “I’ve never come across that much spilled weed.  It is everywhere.  And we found the bag… She stuffed it between the seat.  Oh, and it’s spilled all over there.  It’s just all in the vehicle.”
MG:  “That’s personal use… Yeah, personal use.  What? What?  I smoke week, what?”
As the officer brought Maggie to jail (booking her for DUI, Bribery of a Public Servant and Possession of Marijuana, and giving her gratuitous citations for speeding an an open container violation) the following exchange was recorded:

PO:  “She bribed me.”
MG:  “How did I bribe him?”
PO:  “I’ve never been so glad about these cameras in my life.”
Memo to the Folks:  It’s a constant struggle in the courtroom.  A sign hangs over the Judge proclaiming that “We Who Labor Here Seek Only Truth”, yet many times (and for a variety of reasons) “the truth” does not becomes apparent.  Why?  Sometimes the rules of evidence or procedure preclude it by excluding or suppressing evidence, other times witnesses or evidence is unavailable, occasionally evidence (be it physical, testimonial or otherwise) is tampered with and, frankly, people (cops and civilians alike) lie their asses off while on the stand and under oath.  That said a digital audio and video recording, if un-tampered, does not lie and will tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me G_d.”
When it comes to the subject of drinking and driving, the best advice that you are ever going to hear is:  “Don’t do it!  Get a DD (Designated Driver), not a DUI”.

Be smart{er than Joseph Maine}: Don’t drink and drive, but, if you do, just say “NO{thing}”, don’t blow (in FL your 2nd subsequent refusal is a crime) and call me stat at 305-381-8686, 305-798-2220 or 1-888-SHARK-8-1.
