Officer Elliott made contact with the woman and detected a “strong odor of an intoxicant.” He then asked her to stand and she refused. According to the officer’s report, when he attempted to arrest her, she began to resist. She then broke free and allegedly scratched Elliott.
He then was able to subdue her and took her into custody and placed her in his patrol car. She then according to the police report, attempted to kick the officer and kick the windows of the patrol car. Elliott then pepper sprayed Gann to prevent her from damaging the vehicle.
Gann was charged with simple assault, second offense of DUI, violation of implied consent, third offense of driving on suspended or revoked license, and evading arrest. She was booked into the Coffee County Jail under a $10,000 bond and is to appear in General Sessions court on Monday.
