Police were called to a Graham Street home after a caller reported seeing a woman attempting to break a window on the rear of the residence.
When police arrived, they discovered Darenda Gay Johnson, 44, of 196 Graham Street in Winder, sitting on a pile of glass.
The officer noted that Johnson had blood on her hands and had pulled her pants down below her waist. The officer also noticed that Johnson had urinated on herself.
As the officer began asking questions, Johnson picked up a piece of broken glass. The officer ordered Johnson to drop the glass, but she refused to comply.
“So she was placed on her stomach and the glass was removed from her hand,” the officer wrote.
Johnson eventually explained that she got drunk earlier in the day. Since she did not have a key to the house, she decided to break in through the window. The owner of the home, Johnson’s boyfriend, said Johnson stays at the home occasionally, but does not live there. He did not wish to pursue charges, but said he did not want her to come back.
A medical unit was called to evaluate Johnson. Due to her level of intoxication and the cuts on her hand, Johnson was transported to Barrow Regional Medical Center where she was cited and released.
Johnson was last arrested in March on charges of family violence battery after repeatedly striking her boyfriend when he refused to go to the store and buy cigarettes for her.
In another instance of public intoxication, Jason Armand Hadley, 33, of 1218 Highway 124 in Hoschton, was arrested after an officer spotted him staggering through a parking lot off East May Street.
During the course of his investigation, the officer discovered Hadley had two active warrants for probation violation.
When the officer attempted to place Hadley in handcuffs, Hadley resisted. After being tased twice, Hadley finally complied with instructions.
Once inside the patrol car, Hadley began “screaming and yelling mostly incoherently” and began hitting his head against the window of the patrol car.
Hadley later demanded medical attention saying he had taken methamphetamine and smoked marijuana. The deputies at the jail refused to take custody of Hadley until he had been medically cleared. Hadley was transported to Barrow Regional Medical Center where tests revealed that Hadley had consumed alcohol, but no drugs.
Hadley was then returned to the Barrow County Detention Center.
Hadley has numerous prior arrests including November and December 2009 arrests for public intoxication, an October 2008 arrest for pedestrian under the influence as well as recent arrests for failure to appear and probation violation.
