Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

On 4/13/2022, at approximately 0110 hours, I, Officer Massey, was patrolling the area of State Route 8 (east) near Glanton Street in my conspicuously marked Villa Rica patrol vehicle equipped with emergency lights and siren. As I was patrolling this area, I observed a gray 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (VIN: [REDACTED]) traveling directly in front of my patrol vehicle. The Jeep did not have a license plate displayed.

As the Jeep was traveling near the intersection of State Route 8 and Glanton Street, I observed the driver’s-side tires of the Jeep cross the double yellow center line into the opposite lane of travel. I initiated a traffic stop for the violation by activating my emergency lights, in turn activating my in-car camera system. The Jeep turned onto Cleghorn Street and came to rest just before the railroad tracks. I exited my patrol vehicle, activated my body-worn camera and conducted a driver’s-side approach on the Jeep.

Upon making my approach, I made contact with the driver, and sole occupant, of the Jeep, later identified as Kimberly Lenning (DOB: [REDACTED]). I introduced myself and informed Lenning of the reason for the traffic stop. Lenning informed me she had a paper tag for the Jeep and attempted to locate it in the back seat. Lenning later stated she had applied for a “prestige tag” for the vehicle approximately three weeks ago and was provided with a paper tag until the prestige tag could be received. While speaking with Lenning, I detected the odor consistent with the consumption of alcoholic beverages emanate from her breath. I observed Lenning to exhibit slightly slurred speech and glassy, watery eyes.

I asked Lenning to exit her vehicle and relocate to the front of my patrol vehicle. Lenning exited her vehicle, but immediately opened the rear driver’s-side door of the Jeep and continued searching for the paper tag. Lenning then closed the rear driver-side door and opened the back gate of the Jeep and continued to search for the paper tag. I again asked Lenning to relocate to the front of my patrol vehicle, to which she complied.

While standing at the front of my patrol vehicle, I asked Lenning where she was coming from, to which she replied her residence on Ledbetter Road. I asked Lenning where she was going, to which she replied she had just gotten in an argument with her boyfriend and left the residence looking for him as he had left the residence as well. I asked Lenning if she had anything to drink, to which she replied she had not.

As I spoke with Lenning at the front of my patrol vehicle, I continued to detect the odor consistent with the consumption of alcoholic beverages emanate from Lenning’s breath. I informed her of this. I again asked Lenning if she had anything to drink, to which she again replied in the negative. Lenning later stated she consumed an alcoholic beverage at approximately 6:00 PM. I asked Lenning if she would consent to participating in standardized field sobriety testing to ensure it was safe for her to operate her motor vehicle. Lenning consented.

Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST)

Walk and Turn (WAT): 5 of 8 clues

Lenning agreed she was placed on a relatively flat and level surface. Lenning advised she had issues with planter fasciitis, but stated it would not prevent her from walking in a straight line. Lenning stated she takes gabapentin and hydrocodone for the plantar fasciitis and had taken a dosage at 3:00 PM on 4/12/2022. I administered the walk and turn evaluation. I explained the instructions and demonstrated the evaluation. Upon asking Lenning if she understood my instructions, she advised she did.

  • Lenning started too soon.
  • Lenning was unable to balance during instructions.
  • Lenning made an improper turn.
  • Lenning missed heel-to-toe.
  • Lenning stepped off line.

One Leg Stand (OLS): 2 of 4 clues

I administered the One Leg Stand evaluation to Lenning. I explained the instructions and demonstrated the evaluation. Upon asking Lenning if she understood my instructions, she advised she did.

  • Lenning placed her foot down. (twice)
  • Lenning swayed.

I obtained my department-issued portable alco-sensor from my patrol vehicle. When attempting to obtain a breath sample from Lenning, she failed to adequately blow into the portable alco-sensor repeatedly, sometimes not blowing at all, although I informed her she needed to blow harder. I was able to obtain a partial breath sample from Lenning, which indicated a positive presence of alcohol.

I took Lenning’s driving manifestations, physical manifestations, admittance to the consumption of alcoholic beverages, and the results of her Standardized Field Sobriety Tests into consideration and determined Lenning to be under the influence of alcohol to the extent that it was less safe for her to operate her motor vehicle. I secured Lenning to the rear in double locked handcuffs that were checked for proper fit. Lenning was searched incident to arrest.

The search yielded a glass tube containing a white crystalized substance, suspected crack cocaine, and a piece of a Brillo pad which was located in her pants pocket. No other contraband was located. Lenning was placed in the rear of my patrol vehicle without further incident. While seated in the rear of my patrol vehicle, I confirmed with Lenning she was over the age of 21 and read her the Georgia Implied Consent Notice for Suspects Age 21 or Over (DDS-354, 05/2019), requesting a state administered chemical test of her blood. Lenning consented to the test.

Lenning was transported to the processing room at the Villa Rica Police Department. [REDACTED] with True Peaks Drug Testing service arrived for the purpose of conducting the blood draw. The blood draw was conducted at 0150 hours on 4/13/2022 and from Lenning’s left arm. The blood sample was appropriately packaged before being placed into evidence (VR-18431). Lenning was booked-in, fingerprinted, and issued citations for O.C.G.A. 40-6-48 and O.C.G.A. 40-6-391(A)(1). I elected not to charge Lenning with operating a motor vehicle without a proper tag and the possession of drug-related objects. Lenning was transported to the Carroll County Jail for housing.

While on scene, an impound sheet for Lenning’s Jeep was completed and Huey’s Wrecker Service arrived for the purpose of impounding the vehicle. During an inventory search of the vehicle, a 1.75L bottle of Grey Goose Vodka was located in a blue book bag, which was sitting in the front passenger side floorboard, easily accessible to Lenning. The bottle had been opened and approximately 1/3 of its contents were missing. The glass tube containing a white crystalized substance, suspected crack cocaine, and a piece of a Brillo pad, was confiscated and photographed before being disposed of appropriately.
