A Loudon woman with an apparently loaded food stamp card, was arrested in Madisonville Nov. 14 after she allegedly refused to calm down in a public area.
Madisonville Police Sgt. Chris Moses said he and other officers were sent to the Sloan Center on Highway 411 on a call of a woman refusing to get out of a car just before 9 a.m.
Moses said they found the woman sitting in the car, but she refused to look at them or talk to them. So they went inside the store and found the owner of the car and had him come outside.
The owner told them the woman, Brooke Ann Kiser, was homeless because her family had kicked her out and he had let her stay with him, but he wasn’t willing to do that anymore because of the way she’d been acting.
He said she’d asked him to drive her to Madisonville, which he’d done, but now she wouldn’t get out of the car.
Moses said Kiser opened the door of the car then and became confrontational, but said she still wasn’t getting out of the car. She said the owner of the car had promised to take her to Highway 411, but didn’t seem to realize she was there.
Moses told her she was on Highway 411 and he’d take her where she needed to go, but she accused the car owner of stealing $5,000 off her food stamp card and still refused to get out of the car.
Moses said Kiser then started yelling and cursing in a public area and threw a cigarette at the owner of the car. Moses said officers then pulled Kiser out of the car and she resisted them, refusing to put her hands behind her back before she was finally handcuffed and put in a patrol car.
Kiser, 31, Vale Street, Loudon, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
