“Please don’t tase me,” she said to the officers.
He reportedly didn’t do that, but when Murphy attempted to cuff her, she didn’t comply, the report says. So, Murphy forcibly placed her hands behind her back, Bynum stepped in to help. At that point the officers noticed a watch and other pieces of jewelry in the carport. All of this was collected.
Deputy Brent Rhoads then transported her to the jail.
Here’s a list of what Murphy and the other cops discovered after taking a more careful inventory of the pickup, according to police records.
• Ninety dollars in U.S. currency, a metallic cigarette case with white residue, a set of digital scales, a spring assisted “Tac-Force” knife, a Frost skinning knife, an “Original Bowie” knife with sheath, two homemade batons, three packages of rolling papers, one medieval style battle ax, one clear baggy containing green residue, 26 small blue baggies, one silver spoon with white residue, one used needle without a tip, an open package of “Devil Eye” synthetic marijuana containing green and brown leafy substances, two rounds of tan pills “L852,” and one round white pill.
Since pickup swerving aroused curiosity for this bust in the first place, Murphy asked Watham if he would be interested in taking the state’s implied consent test.
Watham, according to the report, was interested.
Once everyone arrived at the police station, Watham was taken to Valley View Regional Hospital for the state’s sample.
He was then taken back to the county jail and asked if he had anymore contraband on him, and that if he did it would be considered a criminal act to conceal it.
Watham assured the officers he didn’t have any more contraband, according to the report.
Jail staff searched him, anyway.
