||Woman, dog busted for public intoxication
NEWBERN, Tenn. (Court TV) — Dogs are man's best friend, but that doesn't make them good drinking buddies.
Glenda Jane Davis and her cocker spaniel were both nabbed for public intoxication last month after Davis, 43, apparently shared some hooch with her pooch.
The Newbern Police Department received a call on Jan. 23 from a downtown restaurant about a woman with a small dog. The woman, identified as Davis, appeared to be intoxicated and was cursing, according to police.
Davis left the restaurant with the dog, and was nabbed by police on a nearby street corner. Davis was carted off to Dyer County Jail while her dog was taken to a local animal shelter.
When it arrived at the shelter, the cocker spaniel reportedly was wobbly and had bloodshot eyes, according to a supervisor at the Dyersberg-Dyer County Humane Society shelter.
In true hangover fashion, the dog was given an aspirin and quickly pepped up and became friendly again.
As for Davis, she pleaded guilty in Newbern Municipal Court to public intoxication and paid a $50 fine and $98 in court costs.
