New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge's girlfriend, Samantha Bracksieck, brought up the All-Star slugger multiple times during a traffic stop in February.

As seen in the following video obtained by TMZ, Bracksieck made several references to Judge during the traffic stop, which ended with her getting arrested:

"Do you know who my boyfriend is?" Bracksieck asked at one point before expressing concern over the reaction her arrest could generate. "This is gonna be bad for me," she added.

The arrest occurred on the night of Feb. 25 in Scottsdale, Arizona, after police say they pulled her over for driving without her headlights on. Bracksieck said she had drank two glasses of wine before driving, and after registering a 0.12 blood alcohol content (BAC) on the breathalyzer, she was arrested and charged with five crimes, including extreme DUI.

The legal limit in Arizona is 0.08 BAC.

Bracksieck also told police: "My boyfriend is not in a spot where I should be, like, having this happen. He's like a public figure. So, like, me being arrested for, like, having two glasses of wine is not OK."

The 26-year-old also said Judge is "in the spotlight of New York media in general."

Per TMZ, officers said Bracksieck was administered two more breathalyzer tests at the police station, resulting in readings of 0.169 and 0.181, which are both more than twice the legal limit.

Bracksieck is scheduled to appear in court in June and could face jail time if convicted.

Meanwhile, Judge and the rest of Major League Baseball's players are awaiting word on the potential beginning of the 2020 season will begin amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Judge is nursing a rib injury that would have kept him out for the first couple of months had the season started in late March as scheduled, but the delay due to COVID-19 could mean he'll be ready to play when the season begins.
