A Sheridan woman’s erratic behavior in front of a White Hall Police Officer led to her arrest last week.
At 10:30 p.m. Thursday, White Hall Police Officer Celena Harbison was at the White Hall Shell Food Mart, located at 8003
Sheridan Rd., when she observed a female, later identified as Tammy Garrison of Sheridan, a teacher in the Dollarway School District, exit a vehicle that was traveling west on Sheridan Road. Garrison reportedly walked by Harbison’s patrol unit and allegedly said, "Don't [expletive] ask." According to the report, Harbison observed Garrison ‘stagger’ across the parking lot and followed her to the front of the food mart. She asked Garrison to come over to her patrol unit so she could talk to her and Garrison allegedly replied “Don’t even go there.”
Harbison stated that after asking a second time Garrison complied. But when she approached the patrol unit Harbison reported that she could smell an odor of intoxicants on her person.
When questioned about the identity of the driver of the vehicle that she had just exited, Garrison allegedly stated that the man’s name was John and that she had just met him and did not know his last name.
When asked where she was coming from, Garrison replied “no where.”
Harbison then asked her if she was coming from Buffie’s Bar when she allegedly replied “Yes, I just wanted some [expletive] cigarettes and John would not turn into the parking lot, so I got out of the vehicle in the middle of Sheridan Road.”
According to the report, Garrison became argumentative after Harbison advised her to contact John to come back and pick her up allegedly stating again that she just wanted some [expletive] cigarettes and that Harbison would not understand because the officer wasn’t a smoker.
After she repeatedly refused to comply with Harbison’s request to call John, Garrison was placed under arrest for public intoxication and was transported to Dub Brassell Detention Center.
