A lawyer has persuaded the prosecutor’s office to drop charges against a woman who was arrested in November at Brownwood Paddock Square.
Community Watch at about 2 a.m. Nov. 30 reported a “drunk pedestrian” to law enforcement.
Wildwood police responded to the square, where 28-year-old Alicia Loren Pupo, of Leesburg, was spotted about to drive away in a black SUV.
When she got out of the vehicle, she “was off balance and stumbled to the rear driver’s side door,” the arrest report said. A check revealed her driver’s license was valid for “business purposes only.”
The police officer gave her several opportunities to call for a ride home.
Instead of accepting the offer, she began screaming profanity at the officer and questioned if she was to be taken to jail for being a “loud ass bitch.”
When she was being taken into custody, she tensed up and would not comply with the officer’s orders. She had to be threatened with a taser before she cooperated. A small silver marijuana grinder was found in the center console of her SUV. A leafy substance in the grinder tested positive as marijuana. She was arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication, driving while license suspended, possession of marijuana and possession of drug equipment.
Pupo retained the services of attorney Oran Bullock, who last month persuaded the prosecutor’s office to drop all charges in the case.
In an announcement that no information would be filed in the case, State Attorney Brad King called it a “filing decision.”
