I went to the rear passenger side of the jeep to check on the children, and a strong smell of alcohol was emitting from the vehicle. The child in the rear passenger seat had blood around his mouth, but seemed to be OK. the whole time Sarah Tyner was screaming," Officer Jo Strickland reported. Tyner claimed she was driving her Jeep when she reportedly "blacked out" and could not remember slamming into a tree on the side of Martin Street. “Ms. Tyner had a very strong smell of alcohol emitting from her and was very belligerent." "Ms. Tyner did later admit to officers to consuming three Bud Light beers while driving,” Officer Strickland reported.
