Two arrests in as many weeks is where Rebecca Jean Cunningham found herself recently.
Cunningham, 33, of 502 South 7th Street, Apartment 3, was found by LaFollette Police Officer Josh Vann staggering in the roadway near Indiana Avenue Baptist Church on Sept. 9.
According to Vann’s report, Cunningham had bloodshot eyes and extremely slurred speech when he made contact with her at the scene. As a result of her impaired state Vann found her to be a danger to herself and others and placed her under arrest for public intoxication, the warrant said.
On Sept. 17 Cunningham continued to accrue charges when she was the passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by Officers John Baker and Pam Jarrett.
During the stop Jarrett reported discovering a piece of metal used to crush pills while searching Cunningham’s person.
In addition, officers also recovered 84 green pills in an unmarked prescription bottle as well as 21 roxicodone pills located in a metal container. The pills were allegedly located behind the seat where Cunningham was sitting.
Cunningham was arrested and charged with two counts of felony possession of a schedule II controlled substance with intent for resale and possession of drug paraphernalia.
She is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 2.
