Megan Merkel, Upstate Woman Blamed In Death Of Teacher, Wants Haters To "Suck A ___ And Choke On It"
After allegedly mowing down a teacher while driving drunk, nothing (ahem) screams "class" more than taking to Facebook to declare your innocence -- and tell the "haters" to "suck a dick and choke on it."
That's what an Upstate woman did over the weekend after allegedly killing a high school biology teacher near Rochester while driving drunk...at 7:45 a.m.
Just to re-emphasize the class factor, we'll repeat: police say 23-year-old Megan Merkel was driving drunk at 7:45 A.M. before running over a teacher and then telling the world to "suck a dick and choke on it."
(See Merkel's idiotic Facebook rant below)
According to various reports from Upstate media outlets, Merkel was driving northbound on Route 250 in Penfield, a suburb of Rochester, alongside her recently paroled boyfriend, 22-year-old Mark Scerbo, who was driving his motorcycle next Merkel's car.
Police say Scerbo -- who served time as a guest of the state for DWI -- was repeatedly passing Merkel's car to do wheelies on his bike as the two barreled down the road.
Also on Route 250 Sunday morning was 40-year-old teacher Heather Boyum -- a mother of two children -- who was riding her bike on the shoulder of the road.
As Scerbo again passed Merkel to do yet another wheelie, he hit Boyum, throwing her from her bike. Then Merkel ran her over -- before fleeing the scene.
Scerbo was taken to a local hospital, where he's getting treated for "serious injuries." Boyum was taken to the same hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Merkel was arrested shortly after leaving the scene of the wreck. She was booked into jail on charges of DWI and released -- which is when she invited those upset that her stupidity led to the death of an innocent mother of two to "suck a dick and choke on it."
Class, class, class.

Merkel, as we mentioned, only has been charged with DWI. Authorities, however, say additional charges could be filed.
