Make-out sesh gone wrong

January 25, 12:46 a.m. Officer Chatman pulled over a black Ford Fusion for not having the headlights on. He approached the driver, who had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. Chatman also noticed an open can of Natural Lite, an open bottle of Bud Light, an open Smirnoff screwdriver, a plastic cup full of liquor and a 12-pack of Natural Lite. When Chatman asked for her license, she said she did not have it on her. The girl, under 21, explained that she had just made out with someone, which made her breath smell like alcohol. Chatman administered a breathalyzer and she blew a .072 and admitted to having “a Bud Light in a can.” Chatman placed her under arrest for DUI and issued citations for open container, possession of alcohol under 21 years and headlight being out. Her license was turned over to the Milledgeville Police Department and she was taken to the Milledgeville jail.
