LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Fox answered a call about a woman slumped over the wheel of a Volkswagen at the White Bridge off Demory Road. When Fox arrived, he spoke with the woman who stated she did not know why someone called.
Fox allegedly smelled an odor of alcohol coming from inside the car. The woman allegedly told Fox she did not have a license, and she was asked to step out of the VW. He asked her if she had been drinking, and she stated multiple time she had two Clubtails Long Island Ice Teas hours prior but was unable to tell him when she had consumed the drinks. The deputy administered field sobriety tests to the woman on which she performed poorly, according to a report from the sheriff’s office.
Fox saw multiple containers of Clubtails Long Island Iced Tea inside the car. A search of the Volkswagon yielded two open containers of Clubtails Screwdrivers, an open Southern Comfort airplane bottle, an unopened bottle of Vodka, a black reusable cup that smelled of alcohol. Fox placed the woman under arrest and while in the back seat of his cruiser, she tried multiple times to kick out the windows. The woman was identified as Linda Ann Burns, and she was given multiple opportunities to stop but continued trying to kick out the windows. To prevent damage to the patrol car a chemical spray was sprayed into her face.
Burns, 51, 1359 Big Creek Rd, LaFollette was charged with driving under influence (DUI), driving while suspended, revoked or cancelled driver’s license and open container law. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/23/2022-6AM)
