Drunk woman arrested at City Council meeting



MILTON, Ga. — A woman attempting to attend a Milton City Council meeting was arrested for public drunkenness.

Officers working security at the Aug. 21 meeting noticed a woman was unsteady on her feet and had a plastic cup containing a clear liquid with “a slight tint of red.”

The woman entered the council chambers and filled out a public comment card.

An officer asked the woman, who was still swaying, if she needed assistance. The woman said she did not need assistance, but an officer noticed her eyes were glazed over and he could smell alcohol on her breath.

When the officer asked if the liquid in cup was water she replied, “No, it’s wine. Was I not supposed to bring that in here?”

Officers stated the woman’s drink had the consistency and odor of alcohol. She was arrested for drinking in public.
