WATCH: School Board Member Berates Cop During Traffic Stop, Now There are Calls for Her Resignation

This is pretty crazy.

A South Orange-Maplewood School Board member is in some hot water after video surfaced of an encounter she had with police, in which she claimed the officer was racist, paints a very different picture of the incident.

Stephanie Lawson-Muhammad attempted to get out of a speeding ticket by manipulating the officer who pulled her over by exercising her “civic privilege” and then went on to describe Officer Shaun Horst as a “skinhead cop,” saying she was “scared of cops because you guys hurt black people.”

Worst attempt to get out of a ticket ever, right?

Well, now that this video has hit the Internet, many are demanding that she resign from her position.

Here’s the video of the incident:

On Wednesday, South Orange-Maplewood School District (SOMA) Black Parents Workshop Chairman Walter Fields issued a letter to Board of Education President Elizabeth Baker, and admonished Lawson-Muhammad’s “appalling” behavior during the traffic stop.

“When viewing the video, it is clear that Board Member Lawson-Muhammad attempted to exercise her civic privilege during a routine traffic stop,” Fields wrote in the letter. “The officer should be commended for his professionalism, demeanor and the respect he showed a citizen who immediately attempted to use her position to intimidate him.”

He noted that Lawson-Muhammad attempted to “manipulate” Officer Horst by referencing her fear of police.

“Ms. Lawson-Muhammad must issue a public apology to this officer,” he wrote.

Fields demanded that Lawson-Muhammad resign from her position, and urged the board to issue a “formal statement condemning [her] behavior.”

This lady has some serious issues that she needs to work on with the help of a trained professional, because someone without mental health problems does not have such an epic meltdown over a simple speeding ticket.

Regardless of why this happened, the point is it happened and Lawson-Muhammad attempted to use her position and her fears to manipulate a police officer, which is conduct unbefitting of her position on the school board. She absolutely needs to resign.

Here’s to hoping she does the right thing.
