The incident occurred around 1:45 a.m., according to an incident report from Officer Blackstock of the Calhoun Police Department.
Blackstock was dispatched to the scene in reference to a fight in progress. According to witnesses, Farrell was cursing at a male customer inside the Waffle House and throwing silverware and plates. She also allegedly attempted to swing at the unknown male.
Farrell attempted to leave the scene before Blackstock arrived.
“I pulled in, got out of my patrol car and advised the driver to stop her vehicle,” state Blackstock in an incident report.
Farrell stopped and exited the car, but another female -according to the incident report- came running up to the officer screaming, “She hit my baby,” and the two started to argue.
Blackstock broke the women up and asked Farrell what was going on, to which she responded, “nothing.”
When Blackstock asked Farrell again, she replied, “They was trying to pick a fight with my son.”
Blackstock could smell a strong odor of alcohol while talking to Farrell and when he asked her how much she had to drink, she told him she might of had two.
“Ms. Farrell then became extremely emotional, crying and begging officer Banks -who showed up to assist officer Blackstock- for him to help her,” Blackstock said in his report.
After Blackstock asked if Farrell would perform some field sobriety evaluations to determine if she was safe to drive, she told him, “I am not safe to drive, take me home please.”
After the field sobriety test was examined Farrell was placed under arrest and placed into the back of the patrol car, where she started head butting the cage in the patrol car. She then hung her head outside of the car and began to vomit, according to the incident report.
Farrell was then transported and booked into the Gordon County Jail. She was later released.
