On Sunday 9/10/23 at 1703 Hrs, Deputy Diak was dispatched to West side Elementary School in reference to a suspicious woman with two kids trying to get into a vehicle that was not hers.
Upon arrival, Deputy Diak met with [WITNESS #1] who stated a woman, Heather Lewis, and her two children approached her vehicle. [WITNESS #1] stated she asked Heather if she needed help then stated Heather opened her rear drivers side door and started to put her children inside the vehicle.
[WITNESS #1] stated she told Heather to stop and get away from her vehicle. [WITNESS #1] stated Heather was wearing a white shirt, short shorts, and cowboy boots. [WITNESS #1] stated Heather got into another vehicle and left the scene, but was contacted by phone and was advised Heather was at the Dollar General.
Deputy Diak relocated to the Dollar General and located Heather and her two children inside the store. Deputy Diak approached Heather and observed she had red markings all over her shirt, lipstick smeared all over her face, and appeared to be upset.
Deputy Diak asked Heather why she tried to get into [WITNESS #1]’s vehicle. Heather stated she was waiting on her dad. Deputy Diak asked why she needed her dad when she had her own vehicle. Heather stated because he is my dad. Deputy Diak again asked Heather why she tried to get into [WITNESS #1]’s vehicle and Heather stated she thought it was her dad’s vehicle.
Deputy Diak asked Heather if she was ok due to seeing her clothing. Heather stated she was fine and it was none of his business. Deputy Diak asked what kind of vehicle her dad drove which Heather stated she did not know. Heather became loud and belligerent with Deputy Diak that caused customers inside the store to leave due to the disruption. Heather kept yelling and said to just arrest her. Deputy Diak requested another unit due to Heather not cooperating with him.
Deputy Diak asked if she had anything to drink or was under any medication. Heather then began to scream and disrupt everyone inside the store. While doing this, her children were following her around the store. Deputy Diak kept attempting to talk to Heather and she would not answer any questions and still screamed saying she was being harassed. Heather then attempted to go behind the counter at the front of the store. Deputy Diak pulled Heather away from the counter and Heather then sat down on a chair.
Heather still would not answer any questions and began to repeat “you think you’re smart, but you’re not” and then say thank you Jesus. Heather began to calm down while Deputy Diak waited to an additional unit. Heather still would not answer any questions. Heather kept saying her dad was on his way and that is all she would state.
Deputy Dennison then arrived on scene and Heather was asked to come outside to speak. Heather would still not answer any questions and began to cuss in front of other people and children in the parking lot. Due to this, Heather was placed under arrest.
Sgt. Southern arrived on scene and was advised of the situation. Sgt. Southern stated he had dealings with Heather in the past. Sgt. Southern was aware of the children being present and stated he would call [REDACTED] who was the children’s aunt. Sgt. Southern was able to get in touch with [REDACTED] who advised she would pick the children up. Deputy Dennison transported Heather to the Whitfield County Detention Center.
