According to police reports, an officer was dispatched to the Pendleton Police Department in reference to a 911 hang-up on the emergency call box located in front of the police department. Upon arrival, the officer made contact with Jerry D. Weaver, who stated his passenger was extremely intoxicated and out of control. He stated the woman tried to grab the steering wheel while he was driving and almost caused him to wreck. He said he no longer wanted the woman in his vehicle. The woman said she was upset because of an argument she had with her sister, and Jerry was taking her home. The officer noted there was a strong odor of alcohol emitting from her person and her speech was slurred. The officer asked the woman several times to calm down and be quiet, but she continued to scream and cause a disturbance. The officer then placed the woman in mechanical wrist constraints and placed her in his squad car. The woman continued to scream and put her feet on the dashboard and door of the police car. The officer transported the woman to the Madison County Jail where she was detained for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. Upon arrival at jail, the woman submitted to a portable breath test that measured .236 percent grams of alcohol per 210 liters of breath.
7:34 p.m., Amanda R. Brown, 18, Markleville, was cited for reckless possession of paraphernalia, illegal possession of alcohol by a minor and loitering in Falls Park. According to police reports, an officer observed a vehicle parked in the rear section of the Falls Park Sporting Complex with no vehicle lights activated. Because of previous problems with people parking in the lot after business hours, the officer made contact with the occupants of the vehicle, Amanda Brown and James F. Phares. While speaking to the occupants, the officer observed an odor believed to be burnt marijuana. After explaining this, the woman noted there was a smoking pipe in the driver’s side door. The officer also discovered a wooden container that contained a silver smoking pipe in the rear passenger seat and a bottle of vodka on the rear driver’s side floorboard. Phares was cited for loitering in Falls Park. The man and woman were released and all evidence was transported to the PPD and packaged and sealed in evidence lockers.
