Alcohol was the common theme for police activity through the overnight and early morning hours.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Fernando Rodriguez responded to the Jennie Stuart Emergency Room just after 10 last night the report of a woman causing a disturbance.
When police arrived, they reportedly found 32-year old Jennifer Shewey of Hopkinsville using obscene language and apparently under the influence of alcohol. Officer Rodriguez writes that she had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.
Officers told her several times to calm down and to have a seat, but Shewey allegedly continued to use loud foul language around the other patients in the waiting room.
Shewey is also accused of refusing to get into the police cruiser and of striking a deputy jailer in the groin with her knee.
She is charged with being drunk in public, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault of a correctional officer.
Meanwhile, Hopkinville Police arrested three motorists in the downtown area of the city in the first five hours of the morning for allegedly driving impaired, with one driver having a blood alcohol content of nearly three times the legal limit and another under the age of 21.
Officers say they are focusing on the downtown area as a high collision area and that anyone driving drunk will be caught and arrested.
