A LaFayette woman with an active warrant was arrested for walking in and out of traffic on East Villanow Street.

According to LaFayette Police Department reports:

On Thursday, Aug. 27, around 7:30 p.m., 36-year-old Rebecca Leigh Standring was arrested for disorderly conduct.

“What are you going to do, shoot me,” Standring asked the officer.

The officer asked what the woman was doing and she began twitching, making biting motions and cracking her teeth together, and all the while spilling water on herself from a cup she was holding.

Standring was allegedly throwing her hands around as she started for the officer. He advised her to stand against his patrol vehicle; however, Standring continued walking back into the roadway again and again.

The two responding officers then grabbed her and took her into custody and transported her to the Walker County jail.

Walker County Emergency Services Medic 11 arrived on the scene to check to see if her vitals were clear to be accepted by the jail.

Once cleared, EMS said her pupils were dilated and her heart beat was up, leading medics to believe she might have taken some type of amphetamine, but would not be able to confirm what type without checking her blood.

Standring was able to answer the medic’s questions and refused medical treatment.

Walker County 911 discovered that Standring had a warrant in Rome for failure to appear in court. Rome police confirmed the warrant and placed a hold on Standring.
