3 arrested for public intoxication
Three people were arrested for public intoxication Saturday night at two different marinas after they had spent all day on the water.
According to a report from Lyon County Sheriff’s Department, Armour S. Jackson, 19, of Daviess County was arrested just before 10:45 p.m. at Eddy Creek Marina. He had reportedly been fighting with others after a day out on the lake. When Deputy Seth P’Pool arrived, he found Jackson being held back by a group of males. The suspect allegedly admitted to being “way drunk” and began fighting with others who were trying to get him to sleep it off.
He was charged with first and second offenses of alcohol intoxication in a public place.
A couple of hours earlier, Elizabeth Logan Glasscock, 25, of Hardinsburg, Kentucky, and Ryan Wayne Schaeffer, 23, of Oakland City, Indiana, were both charged with first and second offenses of alcohol intoxication in a public place related to a disturbance at Kuttawa Harbor Marina.
According to reports, the couple had gotten into an argument and was causing a scene at one of the docks near HuB’s Bar & Grill. Apparently, they had been on another person’s boat and Glasscock reportedly got angry about not being able to access Shaeffer’s phone. She reportedly through the phone at the man, and he shoved her, causing minor damage to the third party’s boat.
They were asked to leave the craft, but reportedly were in no shape to drive and smelled of alcohol. Both were arrested.
Mom charged with disorderly conduct
An Eddyville woman is facing second-degree disorderly conduct charges after arguing with her juvenile son following court last Wednesday at Lyon County Judicial Center. According to Sheriff Brent White, Jennifer Ann Bounds, 39, was discussing her son’s case with the sheriff in the building following the boy’s appearance in court. Reportedly, the boy interrupted the conversation, leading the sheriff to ask Bounds and the boy to leave the justice center.
As they left, several witnesses outside the adjacent Lyon County Courthouse reported the mother yelled an obscenity at her son to get him to be quiet. For this, she was charged and arrested.
Erratic driving report leads to DUI
A complaint of a vehicle being driven erratically early Saturday morning led to the arrest of Andrea Dawn Washburn, 50, of Smithland for DUI and careless driving. Deputy P’Pool caught up to the vehicle Washburn was operating and reportedly found it crossing both the center lane and into the shoulder of U.S. 62 West.
Upon contact after the traffic stop, deputy said the woman experienced several mood swings in a short period of time while “babbling on” about her medication. She allegedly was unable to pass or refused a number of field sobriety tests, but she blamed her performance on an array of at least 10 medications, including herbal energy pills and Valium.
