[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 8/21/22, I DS Bradstreet conducted a traffic stop. I was traveling south on I85 when I observed a vehicle fail to maintain its lane of travel several times. I then got behind the vehicle. I observed several more lane violations as well as the vehicle varying speeds between 50 and 70 mph. I then activated my emergency equipment and conducted a traffic stop.
I then approached the passenger side of the vehicle. I immediately notice the overwhelming odor of some type of perfume. I then made contact with the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, Kira Hobbs. I advised her of the reason for the stop. I observed her speech to be thick and slurred. I obtained her driver’s license and returned to my patrol vehicle to run her and the vehicle through GCIC. As I was in my patrol vehicle, SGT Fausett arrived on scene.
I then returned to the suspect vehicle and asked Kira to step out of the vehicle. She complied and stepped to the rear of her car. She stated that she was coming from a birthday party but immediately stated that she does not drink several times prior to being asked. I then asked if she would consent to Standardized Field Sobriety testing so I could make sure she was safe to drive. She agreed. I then began those tests.
HGN- 0 of 6 Clues
I began with Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus. I medically cleared Kira by checking for recent head trauma and resting nystagmus. Both of Kira’s brown eyes were tracking equally. I then did not observe any clues during the test.
Walk and Turn- 5 of 8 clues
I then began the Walk and Turn test. I then placed Kira in the starting position. She could not maintain her balance in this position. I explained and demonstrated the test to Kira. She stated that she understood. She then began the test. I observed Kira miss several heel to toe steps, stop walking, conduct and improper turn, and take an incorrect number of steps.
One Leg Stand- 4 of 4 clues.
I then began the One Leg Stand test. I explained and demonstrated the test to Kira, She stated that she understood and did not have any questions. She then began the test. I observed Kira swaying, hopping, using her arms for balance, and putting her foot down prior to 30 seconds.
I then attempted to place Kira in handcuffs. She resisted and I had to take her to the ground to gain control. I was then able to place Kira in handcuffs and escort her to the rear of my patrol vehicle. I placed her in the rear and called for a next list wrecker. I then read Kira Implied consent from my green, agency issued, card. She agreed to the test of her blood.
I then returned to the vehicle to conduct and inventory search. At this point, the strong perfume odor had dissipated and I could now smell the odor of marijuana. I then located several nuggets of a green leafy substance that I believe to be marijuana. I also located two pouches of gummies that were labeled as THC. I also located a small black baggie that contained several multi colored pills. These pill later tested positive for Methamphetamine. I then located a Smith and Wesson Revolver in the center console.
I then turned the vehicle over to A Affordable towing and transported Kira to CCFD Station 1 for a blood draw. Once at station 1, Kira then refused the blood draw. I then transported her to the Coweta County Jail and was able to obtain a Search Warrant for her blood that was signed by Judge Stripling.
Coweta Medic unit then came to the Jail and completed the blood draw. Kira’s blood was drawn by Medic [REDACTED] at 0518 hours. The kit was sealed and will be placed into evidence along with the suspected narcotics and revolver.
Kira was charged with DUI drugs, Failure to maintain lane, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of THC oil, Possession of Methamphetamine, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
