On Aug.8 at approximately 10:15 a.m., Santa Monica police officers were driving in the 100 block of Broadway when they observed a female yelling at an elderly man sitting at a bus bench.
As officers approached, they noticed that the woman was holding an open glass bottle of alcohol, which she then began to try to conceal inside the front pocket of her sweater. When the subject saw officers approaching, she began to yell obscenities and refused to answer any questions.
As officers spoke to the subject, they detected a strong odor of alcohol emitting from her breath. The elderly man asked officers to keep the subject away from him, and when she overheard this she became irate and started to scream at him.
A further search of the subject’s belongings produced drug paraphernalia. Jane Doe was arrested for public intoxication, willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of an open container in public. Bail was set at $10,000.
