Drunk woman calls police on herself


A southern Laurel woman who was under the influence called police on herself, stating she was intoxicated and wanted to go to jail.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Daniel Grigsby and Charlie Johnson went to Topton Road, approximately six miles south of London, on Sunday afternoon just before 4 p.m. to answer the call from 35-year-old Heather Roark. When they arrived, Roark was outside and deputies determined she was indeed under the influence. Roark’s father told deputies he did not know where she got beer, at which time Roark became disorderly and went toward the roadway, refusing to go with her father.

Her actions resulted in deputies feeling she was a danger to herself and others and charged her with alcohol intoxication in a public place. She was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center after her arrest.
