A Commerce woman was arrested recently after a deputy spotted her walking in the roadway on Neese-Commerce Road.
Rebecca Lynn Blevins, 39, 450 Minish Road, was charged with one count of pedestrian under the influence.
According to the incident report, deputy Joshua Fowler was on patrol when he noticed a woman walking in the road “unsteady on her feet.” While talking with her, he noticed that she appeared to be under the influence of some type of drug or alcohol. When he asked her, she reportedly stated that she had been “smoking crack.”
She was transported to the Madison County Jail.
Another woman was arrested for pedestrian under the influence after deputies found her and two companions sitting under a pavilion at the Madison County Recreation Department last Tuesday night. Captain Joe Rickman noted in his report that they were concerned since there has been a rash of vending machine thefts recently.
The deputies detected a strong odor of alcohol and that the subjects were conducting themselves in a “very nervous fashion.”
After being asked for their identification, Shelton allegedly began walking away from officers saying she had to urinate. After being told to stop, she began running, but was apprehended after a short foot chase. A check of her identity revealed that she also had an outstanding warrant on aggravated assault charges in Oglethorpe County.
She was taken to the Madison County jail for booking.
