A woman called claiming her brother “punched her because of her drinking problem.” The woman, who refused medical attention, initially told police she did not know what house she was at on Berkshire Avenue in Avon last week.
When police arrived after locating the house, the woman's brother was outside removing spark plugs from the woman’s car and the tried to start a physical fight with police officers.
Police noted the woman who called did not show any signs of a physical altercation, but she did show signs of being drunk and agreed to a blood alcohol test. The result? The woman blew a .224, almost three times the legal limit for driving.
Her husband was contacted and agreed to take custody of their children the next day. The drunk woman agreed to stay in her bedroom for the night while her sister-in-law agreed to take care of the woman’s children, including a 2-year-old.
No charges were filed against any of the parties.
