Aaron Judge’s longtime girlfriend really struck out with this line.
A video that surfaced of her February DUI arrest in Scottsdale, Ariz. shows Samantha Bracksieck asking cops: “Do you know who my boyfriend is?”
In the police video obtained by TMZ Sports, the 26-year-old is seen pleading with the officers not to arrest her by pitching her relationship to the famed New York Yankees outfielder after she was pulled over for driving without her headlights on.
After she got pulled over at around midnight on Feb. 25, the cops noticed that Bracksieck might be intoxicated. When she was questioned, Bracksieck admitted to having slugged two glasses of wine at Mastro’s Steakhouse.
She failed a field sobriety test and was cuffed by the officer, then the situation got a little heated.
“Do you understand what you’re doing right now?,” she asked the officers.
“I just need to get home,” she added. “Do you know who my boyfriend is? This is going to be bad for me. I’m just saying that right now.”
She asked one of the officers if news of her arrest would be made “public.”
“It will not be public unless you make it public,” the cop told her.
“He’s a public figure,” she said, referring to Judge. “So, like, me being arrested for, like, having two glasses of wine is not OK.”
Bracksieck later asked one of the cops if he understood how New York media worked. He said he didn’t.
“Exactly. Then you don’t understand,” she told him. “My boyfriend is in the spotlight in New York media in general. And now here I am handcuffed in Arizona.”
“Like, that is not good,” she added.
Bracksieck’s plea didn’t seem to work. She was later taken to a police station and charged with “extreme DUI” for an alleged blood alcohol concentration level between .15 and .19, according to TMZ.
She’s due in court for a hearing in June, according to TMZ, and could face jail time, if convicted.
