34-year-old Heather Dudley was disorderly at the Hampton Inn on Northgate Circle in the afternoon hours of December 16th. Officers arrived and observed Dudley packing her belongings to leave the hotel at the Manager’s request, who advised them that Dudley had tried to hit her with her car. They watched surveillance showing Dudley driving her car, but not an intentional attempt to hit anyone. She admitted to driving her car around the building, that she had one cup of wine, and that she smoked some medical marijuana the night before. Dudley consented to sobriety tests and performed poorly. A subsequent search of her vehicle yielded a gram of marijuana in a bag with a prescription label and two glass pipes with marijuana residue. Records showed that she had a prior DUI conviction in Louisiana in 2016. Due to Dudley admitting to possessing medical marijuana and having a prescription, she was not charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. However, the medical marijuana and paraphernalia were logged as evidence of DUI. She was taken into custody for driving with a suspended license and her second driving under the influence.
