This video has to be seen to be believed. A New York county legislator got pulled over by police for speeding and completely flipped out. At one point, she even starts making what sound like barking noises and claims she has PTSD.

N.Y. County Dem Legislator Has Meltdown During Traffic Stop, Uses Multiple Excuses in Effort to Avoid Speeding Ticket
In the video, Berky tries several different ways to get out of the ticket for going 43 miles per hour in a 30-mile-per-hour zone. The tape shows her “venting at the officer, begging not to be ticketed, citing her position as a county lawmaker, and naming elected officials she says she’s contacting,” the Daily Freeman reported.
She also claims that she does not have the money to pay for a ticket.
“Please don’t give me a ticket, I’m broke,” she says in the video. “I’m completely broke, and if you tell people, it’s going to hurt me. I’m totally broke. I made $20,000 last year. Please don’t give me a ticket.”
Berky later says that she is having a panic attack and has PTSD.
When Short asks if she will listen to him, Berky responds, “Yes, I will listen to you, and you’re not going to let me go even though I’m a county legislator and I always do everything right and I follow the law and I was at the same pace as every other car.”
Short repeatedly attempts to explain the reason for giving the ticket to Berky, who at times appears to hyperventilate and have a panic attack while blaming her speed on traffic.
