A 34-year-old Jacksonville woman was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest following the arrival of Sherwood police officers to 3173 Woodruff Creek Drive due to a report of a disturbance.
On June 1, Stephanie Hall, 812 Timberwolf Trail, was arrested at about 8:40 p.m. following the dispatching of Sherwood Officer Dwayne Niles to the scene of 3173 Woodruff Creek Drive in Sherwood.
Police were told there was a disturbance taking place at the premises and Niles was called as a backup officer.
Upon arrival, Niles made contact with Hall and Terry Ault, 3173 Woodruff, and then separated the two. Ault advised Niles that Hall had been drinking all day and had just simply had too much to drink and was to the point of being highly intoxicated.
"As I was approaching the residence I observed several small children a house away from 3173 Woodruff Creek Drive playing," Officer Dale Peters said. "When I arrived, and attempted to make contact with Hall, Hall was screaming at Ault and Officer Niles."
Police reported that every other word used by Hall was profanity.
"Hall had he distinct smell of alcohol on her breath," Peters said.
Police asked Hall to calm down but she cursed at officers in response as she continued to scream.
"I advised Hall that she needed to calm down and informed her that there were children out," Peters said.
Hall told police she didn’t care there were children present and continued cursing. "I told Hall to stop screaming the obscenities or she would be arrested," Peters said, and in response Hall continued screaming and cursing.
"I then placed Hall under arrest, handcuffing her and attempted to place her in the back of my patrol car," Peters said. "However, Hall started resisting and refused to get in the back of my patrol car."
Officers Chad Clements and Markus Peters then arrived at the scene and attempted to assist Dale Peters in placing Hall into the back of a patrol car.
"Again, Hall continued to resist getting in the back of the patrol car and continued screaming profanity at all officers," Dale Peters said. "We were finally able to get her in the back seat of the patrol car."
Hall was then transported to the Sherwood Police Department and turned over to the booking personnel.
All of Hall’s charges were filed as misdemeanors.
