Disorderly conduct: Duff Drive

Just after midnight Feb. 13, a driver reported a drunk woman walking in the road in dark-colored clothing. The caller put on the car’s hazard lights and stayed behind the woman until officers arrived on the scene.

The officer asked the woman what she was doing, and she said that she was out for a jog and was heading home. She had a slight odor of alcohol and was unsteady on her feet. She denied that she had been drinking, but said she was cold.

The officer let her get warm in the patrol car while he attempted to find out where she lived and get her home.

When the officer began driving her home, the suspect became increasingly agitated and began to yell. She refused to get out of the car when they arrived. She refused to sign the citation for disorderly conduct-intoxication and continued to yell at officers.

She eventually was helped into the house by her boyfriend, who said they had been drinking earlier at a bar and she had wandered off.
