Lawyer Gets Wasted, Throws Panties at Police

You know you’ve had a bad weekend when you’re a lawyer and a video of your bare ass is making its rounds on the internet. We suppose things like this tend to happen after you’ve gone on an admitted bender and thrown your panties at the police while screaming “Suck my p***y” and “Eat my ass, you f**king pigs!” And by the way, it was a lawyer who allegedly showered the police with these kind words.

You must be wondering what could have caused an esteemed member of the bar to do such a thing. Well, you see, women are wont to do some pretty crazy things following bad breakups…

Stephanie Hendricks, a graduate of Willamette Law who clerked for the Oregon Supreme Court after graduation, got into this mess after her boyfriend broke up with her. The solo practitioner allegedly tried to skip out on a $6 taxi fare, and that’s when all of the fun began. From the New York Post:

“I went out. I got drunk. I had a bad night.

“It was obviously an altercation, but I have no recollection from a certain point in the evening.

“Everyone was in a festive mood,” she said. “Things were flowing. Then things got out of control. I was wasted — all caps bold. You couldn’t get bigger, all caps bold, wasted.”

Apparently there are people in this world who speak in font styles to describe their level of drunkenness.

Hendricks has since been charged with a number of crimes, including theft of services, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and exposure, but the biggest worry on her mind is whether her drunken debauchery will “sink her career.” After all, she “solicit[s] business from the public,” and this isn’t good marketing.

Readers, why don’t you be the judge? Here’s video of the incident, captured by a surveillance camera:

Don’t worry, this panty dropper is going the Gloria Gaynor route: she will survive, if only because she thinks “[e]verybody has something like this [that] happened to them.” By all means, keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better, but you’re the only attorney whose ass we’ve seen in the news recently.

We just hope she wasn’t wearing granny panties this weekend.
