He said he wanted his bag back.

She then pulled away abruptly.

According to the citation, Davis grabbed onto the truck's bed and rode on the outside of the truck, trying to bust into the vehicle. This went on from Circle K in Berea to the BP on Richmond Road for approximately eight miles. Davis allegedly held onto the vehicle, trying to bust the back glass of the truck with a metal deodorant bottle. Davis said the front of the BP gas station, he was finally successful and completely smashed the back glass. Davis allegedly then flew into the vehicle because she braked abruptly.

When asked about the odor of an alcoholic beverage, Anderson allegedly said, “I have liquor in my cup.”

The citation states, a police-certified canine “Bo” was deployed to conduct a free air sniff of the vehicle and gave a conditioned response to the odor of narcotics. After returning the canine to the police cruiser, two deputies returned to the vehicle to remove the occupants. Anderson made several attempts to delay and prolong the process of getting out of the vehicle while still attempting to get into her purse, lifting her shirt, and making numerous furtive motions toward her bra. The citation states, throughout the handcuffing process, Anderson continued to prevent the Sgt intentionally. From detaining her and continued to “hungover” while guarding her chest area. She was asked three times if she had anything on her person that would “poke, stick or stab” the deputies. She said no, but while patting the outside of Anderson’s pants pockets, a narrow, cylindrical syringe-like object was detected. Opening the right pocket of Anderson’s pants, a broken “crack pipe” was located, which almost stuck the deputy, in addition to a suspected Xanax pill.

According to the citation, the deputy then proceeded to pat down Anderson’s chest area. On the left side of her chest area, Anderson allegedly turned her body to the right to prevent the deputy from checking the area. While checking the left bra cup, the deputy felt a large, block-like packaged object believed to be contraband or suspected narcotics. A search of Anderson’s left bra cup yielded two plastic baggies of suspected cocaine. Anderson was taken to the marked police cruiser and placed inside. She then leaned across the backseat and kicked the deputy in the chest, knocking their clipped radio off the center of their shirt. Anderson tried to kick the deputy a second time in the face, but it was prevented.

The citation states, Anderson was taken to the Madison County Detention Center without further incident. Two individual baggies of suspected narcotics were weighed at the following amounts: white plastic baggie – 29.46 gross grams weight and yellow plastic baggie – 29.21 gross gram weight.
