A black television senior has returned to work despite her arrest for drunk driving, as bodycam images obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com show her spot officers and accuse them of arresting her for her race.
Farron Salley, morning and weekend anchor on channel 25 in West Palm Beach, was welcomed after a two-month leave following her arrest on December 15, 2018.
The 28-year-old wrote a statement and apologized for her treatment with the Palm Beach Gardens police officers, but kept her innocence.
But an hour-long bodycam footage shows Salley shrinking her speech and trying to provoke white politicians with accusations of racism, with which they seem to turn traffic into a racist incident.
However, the Palm Beach County attorney said there was only enough evidence to arrest Salley – not enough to convict her.

In her apology, Salley maintained her innocence, though for an hour of footage showing Salley begging her speech and trying to provoke white police officers, including officer Cameron Carver (right) with accusations of racism, apparently turning the traffic into a racial incident
& # 39; The law does not work for people who are like me, & # 39; said Salley according to Cameron Carver, according to the video. & # 39; But that's okay. & # 39;
When she was asked to perform field scarcity tests, including walking on a straight line and reciting the alphabet, Salley told her fiancée Colleen, who stayed close to the car: “Be careful, they can shoot you , even if you are not black! & # 39;
Agent Carver replied: & # 39; That's a racist comment. & # 39;
Salley replies: & # 39; Yes, it was. & # 39;
According to the arrest report, during handcuffs, Salley managed to undo the seat belt at the back of the police car and tried to walk away from a busy intersection of city streets.
Carver stopped his body cam and did not call in Salley, who could be heard muttering from the back seat: & it's because I am black. This is so racial. & # 39;
She kept waving the cop while she was taken to jail, where she was detained for eight hours.
After being arrested, the Texan native refused to submit to a breathalyzer test. On the spot, Carver told Salley that he smelled liquor in her breath.
Salley admitted having a vodka cranberry drink three hours before the stop at dinner.

In his report, Carver noted that Salley's eyes were bloodshot and that her pupils expanded more than the average person. According to the report, during the incident Salley turned out to be challenging, aggressive, rude and thoroughly annoyed

According to the report, during the incident Salley turned out to be challenging, aggressive, rude and thoroughly annoyed. Carver remained calm and with the book professional, the video shows.
After Carver told her that he persuaded her because she was driving her black Honda Accord at night without rear lights, Salley replied: & # 39; I don't care what you have to say. & # 39;
Carver then asked why she had a & # 39; condescending tone & # 39; used, and Salley corrected him and said that she had a & # 39; affirmative tone & # 39; used.
Among other exchanges, Salley told the police officer before joking about his male pattern baldness: & # 39; I have a Master's degree, what do you have? & # 39;
After a whole series of field moderation tests, Salley was arrested and handcuffed – and then began to cry and tried to reverse her remarks.
& # 39; I am an arrogant son of a gun, & # 39; she said, & # 39; but I can't help it. I'm from Texas. My grandfather was a cowboy, I am sorry to be proud of me. & # 39;
She apologized to everyone on the spot when the officer started reading her Miranda rights.

Salley (center) said by tears when she was helped in the back of the police car: & You make a scene a mile from where I am on TV. I'm not a bad person. & # 39; Please, I work at the TV station, I can't have this & # 39;
& # 39; I am a model citizen, & # 39; Salley said through her tears as she was helped in the back of the police car. & # 39; You make a scene a mile from where I am on TV. I'm not a bad person.
& # 39; Please, I work at the TV station, I can't have this. & # 39;
A few minutes later a police officer can be heard who says & # 39; she has been removed from her seat belt! & # 39; when Salley left the car.
She was immediately surrounded by various officers who spoke to her patiently in the car.
Once in the district prison, the court told Salley to the officers that she is suffering from & # 39; borderline personality disorder & # 39; and uses drugs that she cannot identify.
Salley has not returned any calls and text messages asking for comments.
When she returned to work after the prosecutor's office – the same agency that prosecuted the owner of the New England Patriots Robert Kraft for prostitution – refused to prosecute her, Salley apologized for the incident.
& # 39; I would like to take a short break from our coverage to share something very personal with you. This is my first day back to work since mid-December when I was arrested for suspicion of drink-driving, & Salley wrote on the station's website.
The Palm Beach County state attorney said there was enough evidence to arrest Salley, but not enough to condemn her. The anonymous woman was in the car with her fiancé Colleen (photo) at the time of her arrest
& # 39; I would like to make it clear that I am innocent of this. A fair investigation led to all charges against me being rejected. I thank the men and women who have worked hard to protect us all on the road.
& # 39; I regret my behavior and do not show them the respect they deserve on the night I was arrested.
& # 39; My character is my reputation. Maintaining my values means that I sincerely speak from the heart. That's why I want to let you know how much I missed being here and I never want to take that opportunity for granted. & # 39;
She did not focus on her racist remarks with the police.
Caroline Taplett, the Hearst TV station manager, did not respond to requests for comment.
Palm Beach Gardens Police did not comment on the fact that the charge was withdrawn.
In March, a former police officer with the same department was found guilty of manslaughter and attempted the first-degree murder in the 2015 shooting of a black church cord drummer whose car was shut down on a highway side.
The former cop Nouman Raja was sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing Corey Jones, but he is requesting the sentence.
