Indiana Trooper accuses woman of using meth based on having bad teeth

Mother offended by trooper's accusations of meth use during traffic stop

A young Indiana mother could hardly believe what a state trooper said to her during a traffic stop.

Stephanie Foltz was pulled over for speeding in Tippecanoe County when the routine stop took a turn. Foltz and her husband, Matt, recorded audio of the exchange.

"When did you start smoking meth?" Trooper Thomas Manning asked.
"I've never smoked meth in my life," Foltz replied.
"What happened to your teeth?" Manning said.
"Childbirth," Foltz said.
"Are you saying your children did that to you?"
"During pregnancy, they take calcium out of your body and the first place it comes from is teeth," Stephanie said.
"I don't believe you," the trooper told her. "I know they do take calcium from your body, but they don't do it in that way."

State police have listened to the recording, but found no violations of rules or policies. They did, however, make it a teaching moment, speaking with the trooper about what he did well and what he could have done better.

What exactly does the Indiana State Police believe this Trooper did well with this traffic stop?
