Vance Sheriff's Daughter Charged With Reckless Driving

Posted March 31, 2008

— The daughter of Vance County Sheriff Peter White faces a reckless driving charge.

Witnesses claim 34-year-old Shahita White was on the wrong side of the road and driving erratically two weekends ago. Multiple calls made to 911 described her as "drunk."

The responding officers didn't give her a sobriety test, citing no probable cause.

Peter White said his daughter was treated like any other driver.

    I know the officer that stopped her, and I can say so, I feel as though she was treated totally different than anyone else would have been treated. everyone should go out drink, drive up the wrong side of US 1 or 85 for that matter and see just how long it takes you to get taken to VCSO.

    My son is not 34 yet, but if he got pulled over for DWI the last person he would call is me. I'd tell his mother; whatever the police did would be minor compared to what she would do.

    Skidmore: If you've been caught for DWI "many many times" you ARE a "second class citizen" and you're race has absolutely nothing to do with it.

    For you sake and ours, get yourself some help.

    "she's blistered"... sounds like more than "probable cause" to me!! the AG's office needs to get involved here...

  • Gilgamesh 2 Apr 4, 2008

    I have been caught for DWI many many times and always been given a sobriety test,why should she be any different.I also live in Vance county,even though she is the daughter of an elected official.wht should she be any diffrent from any other driver,,,,makes me feel as a second class citizen,even though we are of the same race

    I reside in Vance County. I don't see much change as far as the county is concerned. This girl was going the WRONG way on US 1. Deputies stated that she was "blistered". IMHO, she was drunk unless she was admitted to the hospital! I know diabetics and people with alzheimers can become disoriented, but she falls into neither of these categories. I just don't get it...
