Note: A two-hour long version of this incident, edited down from nearly 3.5 hours, is available on Patreon. Yes, that means I had to watch this for nearly four hours. You’re welcome 😛
Straight from the officer’s narrative:
“On 6/12/19 at approximately 8:10 PM, Officer J. Ahrends and I were dispatched to an accident at the intersection of Highway 62 and Butler Road. The accident was a two vehicle accident involving a 16 YOA male. When I asked the male for insurance, he stated that his mother had it and was on her way. At approximately 8:50 PM, the male’s mother arrived on scene driving a small silver passenger car.
I made contact with the mother, Jenkins, Andrea, and inquired about the insurance. When she began talking I could smell a strong odor of intoxicants. I asked if she drove to the accident, she stated that she did. I asked her how much she had to drink. She stated that she had two glasses of wine. I released all parties from the accident and had Jenkins perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests. Jenkins performed the test consistent with that of an intoxicated person. When asked to place her hands behind her back, she pulled away and began yelling for her family to record the incident. I advised her that the incident was being recorded on my body worn camera. Jenkins began cursing and yelling, saying that she had only driven there for her son. She was placed in handcuffs (double locked) and in the back of my patrol vehicle.
On the way to the jail she yelled over and over that she did have three glasses of wine and drove to the scene of the accident, only because of her son. At the jail, I read to her the Arkansas DWI statement of rights. She agreed to take the Intox EC/IR II requested of her. The final result, at 10:29 PM, showed Jenkins to have a blood alcohol concentration of .17. She was read and explained the drivers license receipt form, which she signed and a copy placed in her file. It should be noted that Jenkins cursed and yelled for a majority of the time. Often times she interrupted me during the field sobriety tests and rights form. She told me multiple times that she was a teacher, school bus driver, and justice of the peace and I could have let her go. She was turned over to jail staff to be booked on the above charge.”
That’s putting it mildly.
Hey, did you know that she is a teacher and a bus driver. And she is only there because her son got in a wreck? Just checking.
