Women’s Behavior Resulted In Misdemeanor Intoxication Arrests

A Como man was jailed Thursday after a parking lot crash at Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office. Women’s behavior on two separate calls in the past two days also resulted in misdemeanor intoxication arrests, according to arrest reports.

Crash At Sheriff’s Office

According to sheriff’s office reports, man was observed at 11:53 p.m. Dec. 29, 2022, driving a red Dodge Durango with an expired registration sticker in the sheriff’s office parking lot. The SUV also was reported to have struck another vehicle in the parking lot outside HCSO, deputies noted in arrest reports.

A deputy took the 60-year-old Como man into custody at 11:58 p.m. Thursday and booked him into the county jail at 12:35 p.m. Friday, Dec. 30, 2022, on an expired registration charge, according to arrest reports. The Como man remained in the county jail on the charge later Friday morning, according to jail reports.

The Durango was towed from the location, according to arrest reports. No information was reported regarding the other vehicle struck in the crash at the sheriff’s office, including whether it was a personal vehicle or sheriff’s office vehicle and extent of damage sustained.

A suspicious activity report was logged at the sheriff’s office at 11:52 p.m. Thursday, with an arrest being made. An ambulance was also requested at the address at 11:57 p.m. Dec. 29, according to dispatch reports.

Brinker Street Disturbance

Sulphur Springs Police were dispatched at 2:36 p.m. Dec. 29, 2022, to a disturbance in the 800 block of Brinker Street. Officers, in arrest reports, noted they had just left a residence in that area, where they’d dealt with a woman who was suspected to be intoxicated.

Upon arrival, one of the officers that’d been there before spotted another officer speaking with the 51-year-old woman and went to talk to her again. Police alleged they could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her. Officers noted the Sulphur Springs woman continued to yell and had blood-shot eyes as well. She did not have her teeth in her mouth, so it was difficult for the officers to determine whether she had slurred speech due to intoxication.

The woman refused to submit to any sobriety test. She was taken into custody at 2:48 p.m. Dec. 29, 2022, and booked into jail at 3:38 p.m. Thursday on a public intoxication charge. She remained in the county jail Friday morning, Dec. 30, 2022, on the misdemeanor intoxication charge, according to jail records.

FM 1536 Traffic Issue

Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 8:40 p.m. Dec. 28, 2022, to a FM 1536 traffic issue — a woman was reported to be walking in the lane of travel on FM 1536, and was reported to be taking her clothes off as she did so.

Deputies contacted a 24-year-old woman who was indeed in the road on FM 1536 not too far from her address. The rural Sulphur Springs resident, deputies alleged in arrest reports, appeared to be under the influence of a narcotic and presented a danger to herself and others in that state. Deputies placed her into handcuffs at 9:05 p.m. Wednesday and took her to jail, where she was booked in at 10:02 p.m. on a Class C misdemeanor public intoxication charge, according to arrest reports.

The 24-year-old Sulphur Springs woman was released from the county jail Thursday, Dec. 29, 2022, after being arraigned on the charge, according to jail records.
