January 01 the LCSO responded to a report of possible domestic disturbance and possibly being suicidal at a location on Liv 237. An adult at the home went to HMC for evaluation and was later released.
January 02 a person under bond supervision was at the LCSO and met with the bond supervision person and had allegedly had a U/A violation. The person was apparently worried about getting arrested as we learned the person was hiding cigarettes about their body, hiding prescription medication in their sock, and allegedly ingested some of the prescription medication prior to being arrested. The individual was taken to HMC for examination to ensure there was not an overdose issue and to be cleared for confinement. The subject was also found to be in possession of another person’s id/driver’s license and credit card. A full report will be submitted to the prosecuting attorney seeking multiple additional charges. The person claimed they had failed their required test due to eating some type of “bad rabbit” or other wild game.
