Up Against The Wall: Woman had 1.2 drinks, locked herself in car

A woman accidentally locked herself in her car one night last week, and couldn't figure out how to get out after a deputy from the Summit County Sheriff's Office stopped her for weaving all over Highway 9, according to a sheriff's office report.

The woman initially tried to roll down her window when the deputy stopped her, but it wouldn't budge.

Then she tried to open the driver's side door. No luck.

She had just climbed across the car to try to get the passenger's side door open, when the deputy suggested she try unlocking the car.

Worked like a charm.

Deciding the woman didn't seem 100 percent sober, the deputy asked whether she'd been drinking. She explained that she'd only had 1.2 drinks.

Then she failed the roadside sobriety test, the report said and politely declined a chemical test.

She was charged with DUI, weaving from traffic, failure to display valid registration and failure to present a valid insurance card.

A woman got into a disagreement with her landlord last week that ended badly for her, a few electronic devices and some of her decorative belongings, according to a report from the sheriff's office.

The woman told deputies her landlord, from whom she rented a small room in his house, got loaded and began harassing her, calling her cellphone several times in the middle of the night.

She said the next day when she tried to talk to him about it he threatened to evict her.

The next night she came home to find him drunk again and still denying the phone calls, according to the report. He had also taken the liberty of moving some of her things out of the house for her - and onto a nearby slope.

The woman reported he threw her DVR player and Internet modem down the hill. Her wind chimes, a ceramic bowl and a crystal glass oil lamp were also missing, according to the report.

When authorities confronted the landlord about the incident he said he "did put some of her stuff outside, but I brought it back in later."

He was cited for criminal mischief, $500 - $1,000 and harassment.
