Police: Drugged Woman Charged at Hotel Employee With Shovel
The incident happened at a Holiday Inn in Lawrenceville, Ga.
A woman has been arrested in connection to charging at a hotel employee with a shovel and possession of drugs.
According to the Lawrenceville Police report, the incident occurred around 3:22 a.m. March 10 at the Holiday Inn located at 520 John B. Wilson Ct. in Lawrenceville.
The front desk employee told police that, while he was in the lobby changing the clock for Daylight Saving Time, he noticed a woman looking over the balcony at him. He asked her if she needed anything and he said that she simply looked at him and began breathing heavily. She eventually turned and ran to her room on the second floor without saying anything.
A few minutes later, the same woman was now in the lobby standing next to a column. When the clerk asked her again if she needed any help, she grabbed a shovel, held it above her head, and charged at him while making a loud yelling noise.
He told police that she swung the shovel at him, but he was able to grab it and pry it away from her. Once he took the shovel, she went back to her room.
Lawrenceville police officers found the woman upstairs at the end of the hall by the stairchase. As the officers walked toward her and identified themselves, the woman started running down the stairs.
The officers caught up with the woman before she could run outside the front door, and she was placed into custody.
"I noticed right away there was something wrong with the female," one of the officers noted in the report.
The woman, who was later identified as Tiffany Evans, was fidgety and looked confused. She told them that she had taken a lot of ice, or methamphetamine. She kept moving and tired to pull her hands out of the handcuffs.
The officers asked her if she remembered assaulting the front desk clerk or running from the police officers, and she said no.
They found 42 pills of Oxycodone and Zolpidem in two small bags inside her purse and a small razor blade in her pocket.
When they asked her if she had any more drugs on her, Evans replied with, "Why? Do you want some?" according to the report.
Evans was admitted into jail on charges of aggravated assault, obstruction, possession of schedule II narcotics and possession of schedule IV narcotics.
