23-year-old Naomi Benford was jailed Sunday night after police working foot patrol on Broadway were flagged down by ACME security regarding a visibly intoxicated female who was uncooperative and refusing to leave the property after being denied entry. Police observed Benford standing at the front entrance of ACME. She was visibly drunk and smelled strongly of alcohol. Her speech was slightly slurred, and she was unsteady on her feet at times. She became extremely emotional and uncooperative. The officer told Benford that she was publicly intoxicated and needed to leave. Still, she became irate and refused to leave or allow officers to help her find a ride home, and she was taken into custody and transported to booking.
