A Woman In Florida Is Arrested And Argues That She’s Too Rich To Go To Jail . . . Because Her Dad Paid Cash For Her Corolla?
I have a VERY different definition of what it means to be rich than the woman in this story. She’s 28-year-old Jessica Hincapie of Bonita Springs, Florida. And over the weekend, she and a friend got into a fight while they were riding in a taxi. Apparently, they were drinking in the cab, started arguing and then started to get physical. So the cab driver called the cops, who came to break it up. And when they did, Jessica flipped out on them. She told them, quote, “You are in trouble because I’m a New Yorker and my brother is a CSI. My dad paid cash for my Toyota Corolla, and I am too rich to go to jail.” Again, we all have different definitions of rich. Buying a $15,450 car for cash sounds comfortable, but it’s not the kind of money it takes to be above the law. It’s not “Eff You” money, it’s “Big Tip at Red Lobster” money. The cop decided to take his chances arresting a wealthy Corolla owner and took Jessica to the station. She was charged with disorderly conduct.
