Will County deputy coroner Eryn Gray was arrested on suspicion of a DUI after wrecking her car earlier this month, the Suburban Chicago Herald-News reports. She also was charged with resisting arrest and cited for a few other traffic violations, police reports indicate.
While Ms. Gray does not seem to be disputing the facts surrounding her case, her alleged comments to the arresting officer suggest a belief that she is immune from such laws.
While struggling against officers trying to handcuff her, she reportedly yelled the following to the arresting officer:
"Don't you know who I am? I'm a deputy coroner."
