A knocking at their doors awakened several residents along American Greeting Card Road early Sunday morning, resulting in calls for law enforcement officials to investigate.

That’s what Deputy Kevin Berry did, finding a woman walking along Powers Lane.

After speaking with the woman, Berry determined she was under the influence of intoxicants and had three outstanding bench warrants under different names.

Marissa J. Saylor, 35, of Ova Lane in Williamsburg, was then arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place. She was also served with a Whitley County bench warrant for failing to appear in court on charges of theft by failure to make required disposition and another Whitley County warrant for failure to appear in court for possession of marijuana.

Saylor also had a bench warrant in Laurel County for failing to appear in Laurel District Court on a DUI charge and operating on a suspended or revoked license.
