    IT’S NOT THE SUGAR, SUGAR — A woman who ran into a ditch on Zettwell Road claimed to be diabetic and having a sugar issue. However, she was found have a blood alcohol level of .224, but normal blood sugars. She was found with an open beer and came to law enforcement's attention after someone reported her as a reckless driver. After she ran into a ditch, someone called a wrecker and then followed her as she continued to drive erratically after being extricated from the ditch. More empty beer cans were found in the car, and she told deputies she just wanted to go to sleep. She was charged with DUI and other charges.

    REPEAT OFFENDER — A deputy stopping a vehicle on Hwy. 67 saw it “rocking from side to side” during a traffic stop and found the driver to be switching sides with a passenger. The driver had 14 license suspensions — seven for failure to appear in court, four for driving on a suspended license, two mandatory suspensions and one for no insurance. He was taken to jail with yet another suspended license charge, as well as a window tint citation.

    JAIL OR SCHOOL? — A Burkhalter Mobile Home Park woman called deputies when her juvenile daughter yelled and threatened to punch her in the face because she didn’t want to go to school. The juvenile told deputies she was not a morning person and her mother was yelling at her to get up. When the deputy told her she had a choice between going to school or going to jail, she chose school.

    UNSUPERVISED — A deputy saw a four-year-old child riding his bike near dark in the middle of Old Leefield Road. Another child, 12, arrived on a dirt bike looking for the younger one, who had shoes on the wrong feet. The children’s father was located and said the children were not supposed to be out of the yard and said this had never happened before, but deputies reminded them they had been at the home several times regarding the four-year-old being missing. The father became angry and asked what deputies suggested he do with a child that likes to run, and deputies told him to watch his children better. Deputies also told the man social workers would be notified of the incident.
