Woman found sleeping on side of road arrested

Deputies who responded to a welfare check in the 8900 block of Mitchell Bend Court Saturday found a 43-year-old woman asleep on the side of the road, according to Hood County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose. A 911 call requesting the welfare check had said there was a person lying in a ditch, and that three dogs were on top of the individual. Deputies did not find the dogs, but the woman was “reeking of alcohol” and was arrested and charged with a Class C misdemeanor, public intoxication.
