According to an affidavit of complaint, the officer pulled into a convenience store in the 3300 block of Ringgold Road on Sunday looking for several parties asleep in a silver Honda in the parking lot. When the officer pulled into the lot, he made eye contact with a man inside the car who “appeared to have a frantic look on his face,” the report states. The driver of the car left the lot at a high rate of speed heading east on Ringgold Road.
The report states when the officer caught up to the Honda it turned into the Walgreens and the driver then made “lunging and furtive movements in the center console and driver side door of the vehicle. When the officer got the car stopped, the driver “jumped out in a threatening manner and was detained for officer safety,” the report states.
The driver, William Bryce McDaniel, of a Roper Street address, told the officer that he had an active warrant for his arrest on burglary charges through Hamilton County. The report also states that he told the officer that he had used narcotics within the last three hours.
When the officer approached the vehicle on the driver’s side he saw a small child in the rear seat and a woman in the front seat who appeared to be under the influence. The report states that as the officer was speaking to the woman she moved her left leg and the officer saw a plastic cap to a needle underneath her left leg.
The report states that as the woman stepped out of the car, a syringe loaded with an unknown substance fell to the ground. The substance was later identified as Opana, the report states. The woman was taken into custody and identified as Shannen Nicole Wilson. The report states that officers located a metal spoon with a white residue in the driver’s side door and another spoon under the passenger’s seat. A search of the vehicle revealed a pill cutter/crusher and the woman’s purse was found to contain a Tylenol bottle that had a small, round blue pill with “10” imprinted on it.
The child was turned over to Children’s Protective Services. McDaniel was charged with DUI, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Child Neglect. Wilson was charged with Child Neglect, Possession of Schedule II Drugs and Possession of Schedule IV Drugs. They are both scheduled to appear in East Ridge Municipal Court on May 17.
_ Police have charged a man with Domestic Assault after they were dispatched Saturday to a Karwill Lane address on suspicious activity.
According to an affidavit of complaint, an unidentified complainant told dispatchers that they had overheard a disorder throughout the previous night at the Karwill address, and believed something was wrong since both the front and rear doors of the apartment were open. The caller had not seen anyone at the address all day long.
When officers went to the door, they were immediately greeted by Gregory Scott Garmany. When officers asked about a disorder, the report states, Garmany denied any knowledge of such.
The report states that Garmany told police that he lived there with his girlfriend. When officers and Garmany went inside the house for documentation that he actually lived there, police saw a closed bedroom door. The report states that Garmany would not allow officers to go inside the bedroom. At that point, officers took Garmany outside of the apartment through the back door and saw glass on the ground from a broken kitchen window. The report states that blood was visible on the window, the brick wall of the house and the sidewalk. Police noticed that Garmany had an injury to a finger on his left hand.
As police questioned the man, he had originally denied that his girlfriend was home. The report states that he later told officers that she was in the closed bedroom.
The report states that police were concerned about the girlfriend’s well being and went back inside the house and announced their presence. When no response came from the locked bedroom door, officers forced their way inside.
Once inside the room they found a woman laying in the closet floor covered with a blanket. The woman, the report states, was intoxicated and she said she was afraid to open the door because Garmany had recently assaulted her. The report states that the woman had red marks on her right wrist and noticeable swelling on her right ring finger.
The woman told officers that Garmany had assaulted her throughout the night and she was able to force him out of the apartment. The kitchen window was broken by Garmany trying to get back inside. The woman told police that she let Garmany back in the apartment but locked herself in the bedroom for fear of another assault.
Garmany was arrested for Domestic Assault and taken to the Hamilton County Jail. He is due to appear in Municipal Court on May 17.
