No sooner did 36-year-old Tracy Ann Coker of Crossville get released after a night in Cumberland County jail than she was arrested again Wednesday morning.
The first incident occurred early Tuesday evening, when Cumberland County deputies responded to Highway 70 West for a report of a possibly impaired woman doing donuts in the caller’s yard.
Deputies found Coker passed out behind the wheel of her vehicle. Deputies had to knock several times at her window to rouse her. When deputies asked her to step out of the vehicle, Coker needed help standing. The arrest report states Coker had a strong odor of alcohol emanating from her, along with red, watery eyes and slurred speech.
Deputies asked multiple times how she ended up where she was and Coker could neither finish a sentence nor tell them what happened.
Due to Coker’s apparent level of impairment, deputies conducted no field-sobriety tests.
Inside the vehicle was a half-empty 200-ml bottle of vodka.
Coker said she’d gotten off work at 3 p.m. and headed home after stopping at a local liquor store. She said she bought the bottle of vodka and began drinking it on her way home. Coker estimated the time to be 3:30. It was 6 p.m.
Coker was charged with driving under the influence and placed under $2,000 bond. She’s due in court June 10.
Late Wednesday morning, Crossville police were called to an address on Pinewood Drive for a report of a woman knocking on doors of apartments that weren’t hers.
According to the arrest report, when police arrived, “Coker was sitting on the porch of an apartment that was not her own in a puddle of unknown liquid.”
When the officer asked if she could stand, she did, but was observed to be unsteady on her feet. The officer noted an odor of alcohol coming from Coker, and she had slurred speech.
Coker was charged with public intoxication and taken into custody for her own safety.
