Garland County Deputies arrested a woman after she drove her car into the ditch and then attempted to make sexual advancements to Garland County Sheriff’s Deputies.
Ronda Lynn Flanagan, 52, of 6827 Highway 7 North was arrested and charged with two counts of Harassment, Public Intoxication, Driving on a Suspended License and Careless/Prohibited Driving.
That’s according to the Garland County Sheriff’s Department.
According to the report, Deputy Wharton was dispatched to the 400 block of Fox Pass Cutoff, in reference to a vehicle that had run off the roadway. Upon arrival, Deputy Wharton observed a Honda van stuck in the ditch. Deputy Wharton then made contact with the driver, Ronda Flanagan who stated that she had been driving the vehicle, and was forced off the roadway by another vehicle.
While speaking with Flanagan, Deputy Wharton observed a strong odor of intoxicants on her breath, along with watery red eyes, and slurred speech. Deputy Wharton asked Flanagan if she had been drinking alcohol, and she stated she had a couple of beers.
Flanagan consented to a portable breath test, which yielded a result of .06% blood alcohol concentration. The suspect was placed into custody, and Combs and Burkes Towing Company responded and removed the vehicle.
While conducting a search of Flanagan’s person, Deputy Wharton asked her to take the bottom of her bra and pull it away from her body so any items would fall out, and her breasts would not be revealed and he would not have to touch her.
At this time, Flanagan pulled her shirt and bra up to her neck and fully exposed her breasts. Flanagan then stated, “Damn, look at that shadow from that thing.” “You look huge”, referring to Deputy Wharton. While Deputy Wharton was transporting Flanagan to the Garland County Sheriff’s Department, she began making sexual advances and stated, “If you take me to my home in Jessieville, I’ll give you the time of your life.” She continued, “I used to dance and you ain’t never had nothing like this.”
She further stated, “If you do not take me home, I’m going to tell them that you let me touch your privates , and I want to speak to my attorney, Q. Byrum Hurst.
Upon arrival at the Sheriff’s Office, Flanagan began telling Sergeant’s S. Miller and Deputy Branstetter, “Have you ever seen Deputy Wharton’s privates. because he showed it to me.” Flanagan further stated, “He was hitting on me the whole way here.” Branstetter then told Flanagan that she was going to do a pat down search, and Flanagan stated, “Go ahead, you are going to like it.” At this time, Flanagan began rubbing her buttocks on Branstetter.
Flanagan also stated, “Rub it harder (her breasts), that feels so good.”
Flanagan was uncooperative during the booking process.
