A Florida woman stopped from leaving a Deland home told a Volusia County Sheriff’s deputy that he would get a “visit from the KKK” as she was being arrested for DUI.
According to WFTV, Julie Edwards was taken into custody on Thursday night.
The deputy was called to the home in response to a disturbance. He stopped Edwards from backing up and leaving the home as he arrived.
The deputy smelled alcohol and arrested Edwards after she refused to take a breathalyzer test.
At one point Edwards told the deputy that the “Ku Klux Klan would be seeing him and burning crosses on his property.”
She also used a racial slur.
Edwards faces multiple charges including threatening an officer and resisting an officer without violence.
