Car-hop or cop?
Nov 13 2009
ELIZABETHTON, Tenn.— A woman who mistook a police officer for a car hop at a Sonic drive-in was charged with DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia. A caller to 911 Saturday reported the woman nearly struck several vehicles before pulling into the drive-in.
The Johnson City Press reported Elizabethton Police Officer Sarah Ellison found the woman slumped over the steering wheel. When Ellison tried to get the woman's attention, the woman handed her a $20 bill, continuing to offer it even after she identified herself as an officer.
The woman was arrested and the officer found a syringe, a spoon with white powdery residue and numerous bottles of prescription medicine in the car. She was loaded for the weekend.
The woman appeared in Sessions Court on Tuesday and her hearing was set for April 6. She asked the magistrate if you could get her personal belonging back, taken from the car by the car hop...ehr..officer, who she accused of posing as a car hop.
