A suburban Oklahoma City lawyer was removed from the courtroom on Tuesday during her arraignment on drug charges, reportedly because she was talking too much.
Amy McTeer of Nichols Hills is charged with methamphetamine possession, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and public intoxication, NewsOK reports. A court officer told the publication that McTeer interrupted the judge and prosecutor.
“She wouldn't stop talking,” the unnamed court officer said. “She was obviously agitated and she was talking over everyone else.”
McTeer was arrested on Monday after she flagged down police and told them she was poisoned by a man who left her in front of a truck stop, NewsOK reports in a prior story. Police allege they found a pipe with white residue in her pocket.
