Florida woman threatens arresting officer with visit from Klan: 'I won’t find you, but my KKK people will'

DELAND, Fla. (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — A Florida woman faces multiple charges after she warned a police officer arresting her for driving under the influence that the Ku Klux Klan would "burn" his family.

Officers were called to a home in Deland, Florida, on Feb. 8 on reports of a disturbance. They found the suspect trying to reverse her vehicle.

Police said they could smell alcohol on the breath of 53-year-old Julie Edwards. She was also slurring her speech. Edwards refused to take a sobriety test, before Deputy Brandon King placed her under arrest for DUI.

Video released by the Volusia County Sheriff's Office shows Edwards racially abusing King as he fills out a report. Edwards is heard saying she hopes to find him in a corner alone and that "there ain’t a damn thing wrong with burning crosses in your yard."

"I won’t find you, but my KKK people will," she says.

Edwards faces charges of resisting an officer without violence, driving under the influence, making a threat against a law enforcement officer, and refusing to submit for testing.
