Meet Tasha Lee Cantrell. The 19-year-old Floridian was riding in a car early Monday morning when the vehicle's driver was pulled over and arrested for DUI. As a tow truck arrived to remove her friend's car, a stranded Cantrell asked Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office Deputy Mitchell Landis for a ride home to her Fort Walton Beach residence. Landis agreed, but only after checking Cantrell's purse for any contraband, according to an offense report. While chauffeuring Cantrell, Landis heard the teenager "open a can of some sort" in the back of the cruiser. "As I looked at my in car video I observed Cantrell drinking out of an unknown can." Landis stopped his car and, upon further investigation, determined that Cantrell had popped open a can of Steel Reserve, a malt liquor known for its high alcohol content. "When I opened the rear passenger door I observed Cantrell attempting to hide the can between her legs. I retrieved this can and noticed it was Steel Reserve Beer," reported Landis, who immediately arrested Cantrell for underage drinking. Instead of being shuttled to her doorstep, Cantrell, pictured in the below mug shot, was rerouted to the sheriff's office, where she was booked on the misdemeanor charge. APRIL 9 -- As we reported earlier this week, Tasha Lee Cantrell, 19, was arrested early Monday morning after she made the mistake of popping open a can of malt liquor while seated in the back of a police car. Cantrell, who was being driven to her Fort Walton Beach home by Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office Deputy Mitchell Landis, had been a passenger in a vehicle whose driver was arrested for DUI. As seen below, video from Landis's cruiser showed the deputy searching Cantrell's bag for contraband before she was allowed into the police vehicle (clip #1) . Somehow, he missed the 24-ounce can of Steel Reserve that Cantrell would later stealthily remove from its zebra-striped enclosure. After sneaking a sip, Cantrell was quickly busted by Landis, who was monitoring his passenger via an onboard camera pointed into the back seat. When Landis stopped the car and opened the passenger door, Cantrell tucked the beer can between her legs (clip #2). After directing Cantrell to step out of the car, Landis arrested her for underage drinking. He then asked, "Why do you think you can drink a beer in the back of a cop car?" The handcuffed woman could only respond, "I have no right answer for you." The video was provided to TSG after Cantrell, pictured in the mug shot at right, entered a no contest plea Tuesday in Circuit Court, where she was ordered to pay court costs and a fine totaling about $500. As Cantrell waited for Landis to bring her in for booking, she apparently noticed the camera recording her musings and sought to obscure its view with a well-placed sandal (clip #3). (1 page)
