HAWTHORNE, CA—If she’s handling the gateway for the our future—i.e., the children as they enter college—then perhaps her DUI is a sign that it’s bleak.
Ja’sada Marteine Lauderdale, 35, was arrested on Thursday, October 30 at approximately 3:30 a.m. at the Gardena Police Department by Hawthorne Police Department officers. Police records did not disclose why she was at the Gardena PD nor if she had any warrants or charges with or by said PD.
The college admissions representative was popped for a warrant for a DUI alcohol/0.08 percent blood alcohol level (23152(B)VC) and for a bench warrant issued for failing to appear after a written promise to do so (40508(A)VC). The DUI warrant was from Gardena PD and the bench warrant was issued by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).
It was not stated which, if any, area college she worked at or works at. In the South Bay—where she was arrested—there are a number of colleges. Two of the largest are California State University, Dominguez Hills and El Camino College.
Total bail was set at $37,909, with the lion’s share of $35,000 being for the DUI.
