A couple was arrested last week after their vehicle was pulled over following a report of reckless driving.
Norris Llewellyn Watkins, 47, 210 Lavender Road, Athens, was charged with DUI/alcohol, driving without a license and expired vehicle tag or decal.
His passenger, Peggy Sue Fleeman, 45, 21 Sherwood Circle, Danielsville, was charged with drugs to be kept in original container and three counts of illegal possession of controlled substance.
According to the incident report, deputy Michael Free was dispatched to Hwy. 29 after a caller reported a white Jeep all over the roadway. Free stopped the Jeep on Moriah Church Road at Johnny McElroy Road. The driver, Watkins, told Free that he was taking his girlfriend to the hospital. The deputy noticed that Watkins had a “strong odor of alcohol” and that his speech was slurred and his eyes glassy.
After Watkins was arrested for DUI, an ambulance was called for Fleeman, who said she was diabetic and not feeling good. A search of the vehicle produced a pill bottle under the seat containing several different types of narcotics, which Fleeman stated were hers, though the bottle had another name on it. Fleeman was transported to an Athens hospital and warrants were issued for her arrest on the listed charges.
