Good Evening and welcome to the I.C.U. News Network. I’m Icey Mee and we’ll be looking at a story tonight that is making headlines on all the other news stations. We believe, that on some of the other networks, the DRs DREW too many conclusions without enough facts in the BARBIE DUI arrest. We’ll speak with the arresting officer, Dick Shankly, and Ms. BARBIE’s publicist, Justine Thyme. Let’s take a look at the story and you be the judge.
This afternoon, in Miami, FLA., Ms. BARBIE was arrested and charged with DUI. This is the mugshot released by the Miami-Dade County Sheriff’s Department:
In part of a statement, released earlier by her publicist, Ms. BARBIE said that the police department chose the worst photo and that she didn’t look that way at all until after being mistreated by the arresting officer. We here at I.C.U. thought the photos you are about to see were pretty compelling and corroborated Ms. BARBIE’s statement. We reached out, via webcam, to the arresting officer, Dick Shankly, and asked him what he thought about the photos you are about to see and Ms. BARBIE’s allegations.
Icey Mee: Good evening Officer Dick and welcome to our program. We were wondering what you think about the statements made by Ms. BARBIE in reference to this photo behind me and her alleged mistreatment by you?
Officer Dick: She wasn’t treated any differently than any body else that breaks the law.
Icey Mee: (pointing to his hand in BARBIE’s hoohaa). So you’re saying you pat everyone down like this?
Officer Dick: Our first job is to stay safe and we routinely check for hidden weapons.
Icey Mee: She’s wearing a bathing suit. Don’t you think you would have seen a weapon?
Officer Dick: (shakes his head indignantly and giggles). Take it from me, Ms. Mee, I know how to do my job.
Icey Mee: (pointing to the next phot0). And what about this photo of Ms. BARBIE in shackles? Isn’t this a little, oh, I don’t know, overkill?
Officer Dick: When you break the law, you break the law.
Icey Mee: The information we’re getting is that BARBIE wasn’t driving, that she was parked. What law did she break?
Officer Dick: No open alcohol containers in a car, no drinking in a car, no drinking near a car, no drinking while you’re holding car keys, no loud music while you’re drinking, contributing to the delinquency of a dog, and her left brake light was out. She’s really a rotten apple.
Icey Mee: I see. And what about this photo, that an anonymous source released, from the hospital where you took Ms. BARBIE to be blood-letted, I mean for a blood-alcohol test?
Officer Dick: Standard Operating Procedure. Like I said, when you break the law, you break the law and we can’t take a chance on the suspect overpowering us or fleeing the scene.
Icey Mee: Is it very often that a 100 lb. woman in high heels, who’s been drinking, overpowers you and flees? I was led to believe that motor skills were severely impaired while drinking.
Officer Dick: (squealing like a little girl). You’d be surprised what a woman can do with high heels…and long fingernails.
Icey Mee: Thank you for your time Officer Dick.
Next, to discuss more on this story is Justine Thyme, Ms. BARBIE’s publicist and close friend.
Icey Mee: Thank you for joining us here at our studios Mrs. Thyme. Can you tell us how Ms. BARBIE is doing?
Mrs. Thyme: Thank you very much for having me on your show. BARBIE is, rightly so, very upset. She feels that she has been treated like an animal. And that Dick you just talked to…he needs to have his head examined. This is another Rodney King. These Officers of the Law can’t just go around abusing any person they come in contact with this way! They still treat my father that way for a speeding ticket. My brother can’t walk to the corner store without being stared down, harassed, or questioned about where he’s going and what he’s doing. All any other network wants to talk about is BARBIE got a DUI, BARBIE got a DUI, BARBIE got a DUI. When they gonna wise up and see what’s going on? The pictures are right in front of their…(interrupted by Icey Mee).
Icey Mee: The photos are quite alarming, even to the untrained eye. What do you think is going on?
Mrs. Thyme: Think? I know what’s going on. It’s been going on in my community since they packed us in like rats for our first boat ride. You give anybody that kind of power and a gun! It goes straight to the dopamine center of the brain. Straight to the center of the brain. Oh, I know what’s going on. BARBIE wasn’t even driving her BARBIE jeep. It was parked. It…was…a…parked…car. She just finished a photo shoot with one of her sponsors, BARBIE BEER. She was arrested for drinking while sitting. Who gets arrested for that?
Icey Mee: Is there an explanation as to why she was drinking in the jeep?
Mrs. Thyme: Her contract clearly stated that she had to stay at the shoot location for an after party. She was tired from the photo shoot. She wanted to sit down. And besides, she is also a sponsor for BARBIE Jeep so she thought she’d kill two birds with one stone and drink her BARBIE BEER in her BARBIE Jeep. Well, that stone must have hit Officer Dick in the head cause no one I know, who’s not mentally impaired, lacks that much judgement. And since when is it a crime to party at the beach? The last time I checked…(interrupted by Icey Mee).
Icey Mee: So are you saying that BARBIE BEER encouraged Ms. BARBIE to continue drinking BARBIE BEER after the photo shoot?
Mrs. Thyme: Yes. It was a part of the contract. First there was the photo shoot and then the after party. BARBIE was under contract to be there. Period.
Icey Mee: Thank you for your time. We look forward to an update on this story.
Mrs. Thyme: My pleasure.
BARBIE BEER has denied that BARBIE was working for them at the time of her arrest. They do confirm that she was doing a photo shoot for them earlier that afternoon but said that it did not involve the consumption of any alcohol.
I’d like to thank our guests and viewers. This is Icey Mee for the I.C.U. Network. Join us next time and have a great night.
