McCausland told police, “You’ll be sorry,” and told an officer to call security at Rick’s bar “because they would tell (the officer) not to arrest her,” according to the report. McCausland told police she worked at an adult entertainment club.

Police said McCausland began stuffing a large portion of her shirt into her mouth and began chewing while officers tried to give her a breath alcohol test at the jail.

She was arrested on a misdemeanor drunken driving charge and a felony count of trying to flee police at high speed.
