An intoxicated Commerce woman was arrested recently after she caused a disturbance at a home and then on the side of Black’s Creek Church Road.
Anna Renee Worley, 56, 2195 Erastus Church Road, was charged with public drunkenness and obstruction. Officer Jeffrey Strickland went to a home on Black’s Creek Church Road regarding a disorderly person. He met with the homeowner, who told him Worley had been there earlier and was “very intoxicated.” He said she became belligerent with him when he wanted his vehicle back and attempted to leave in it. He stopped her from taking his car and she left walking. Officer Alan Stratton located Worley in a vehicle on the roadside. Strickland went to this location where he issued Worley a criminal trespass warning for the home she had just been at. The driver of the vehicle said he would take Worley home. As officers were preparing to leave, the driver pulled up to Strickland and said “take her to jail.” At that point, Worley yelled “you’re not taking me any d… where!” She was asked to calm down, but kept yelling, refusing to get out of the car and telling Strickland that the man whose resident she had left earlier had “shot her tires out and broke the windshield in her vehicle.” She refused to get out of the car when asked and had to be pulled out and handcuffed while on the ground. Strickland noted that she received some scrapes on the side of her head where she struggled on the ground. She was taken to jail.
