Welfare check on passed-out driver leads to DUI arrest

Staff report

A call to check on the welfare of a passed-out driver led to a DUI arrest and numerous drug charges.

At approximately 2:30 p.m on Thursday, deputies received a call in reference to a female passed out in her vehicle with the motor running at the intersection of Clinton Road and County Line Road.  Upon arrival, deputies observed the woman slumped over the steering wheel and made contact with her. 

Amber Isom, 36, of Graves County, was sitting in the driver seat of a '99 GMC SUV with the engine on.  The vehicle was still in drive with Isom's foot on the brake; she was passed out at the steering wheel.  The vehicle was made safe and field sobriety tests were given for suspicion of DUI.

Isom was taken into custody for DUI 2nd Offense.  Upon searching Isom in connection with the arrest, deputies located doses of hydrocodone, diazepam, tramadol, nabumetome and lidocaine patches.  Isom stated to deputies that she purchased the pills from another female and paid her with cash.  Deputies seized an amount of cash that was believed to be used to obtain the illegal drugs.  Isom was lodged at McCracken County Regional Jail.

Deputies were able to make the arrest and seize the illegal drugs with the help of concerned citizens. Deputies ask citizens to continue to report illegal drug activity, suspicious activity and any DUI complaints.
