On October, 29 at around 8:10 a.m.
Officers responded to a report of a traffic hazard in the area of Neilson Way and Bay Street. The reporting party stated there was a female White, with blonde hair, walking in and out of traffic. When officer arrived, they located a subject matching that description in the 100 block of Bay St. Officers made contact with the woman and they immediately noticed the woman appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Officers began to interview the woman but could not understand her due to her slurred speech. The woman eventually admitted to using methamphetamine earlier in the day. The officers placed the woman under arrest for public intoxication since the woman appeared to be unable to care for her own safety. Officers transported her to Santa Monica Jail when the woman became combative and tried to escape from the officers. The officers were able to gain control of the woman and book her into the jail.
Cheyene Baternick of Temecula was arrested for public intoxication and resisting/delaying a peace officer. Bail was set at $10,000.
