Waukesha woman pulled over for speeding on her way to court to ask a judge to put her in jail ends up with more drug charges, according to a criminal complaint.
A Waukesha woman speeding to ask a judge to place her in jail after relapsing in her heroin addiction found herself in more trouble, according to a criminal complaint.
Lisa M. Teuteberg, 25, was charged Wednesday with possession of narcotic drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, she faces up to one year and seven months in prison and $10,500 in fines.
According to the complaint:
A New Berlin police officer pulled Teuteberg over for traveling 57 mph in a 35 mph speed zone at West Cleveland Avenue and Sunnyslope Road. Teuteberg told the officer she knew she was speeding but she was running late for court.
The officer noticed Teuteberg had a letter on the seat to Judge Kathryn Foster. The letter stated that she had a drug relapse and failed drug tests. In the letter, Teuteberg was asking the judge to place her in jail after she had a heroin relapse.
The officer took Teuteberg, who had fresh marks consistent with drug use, into custody on a warrant. When he searched her car, he found a syringe, tinfoil packages, needle caps, paper towel, cotton balls and two spoons.
Teuteberg also had a spoon and a tube of narcan in her purse. Narcan is a drug that reverses the effects of a heroin overdose.
