From staff reports

Lewisburg Police stopped Cathy Marie Buttrey in the early morning hours of Dec. 10, after observing her driving with a broken headlight on 5th Avenue.

Patrolman Kylar Gentry noted in the report that he had to use his loudspeaker, in addition to his blue lights and siren, in order for Buttrey to come to a stop at 5th and West Commerce.

Asked for her license and registration, Buttrey instead, according to the report, pulled out a cigarette and asked if she could smoke.

Gentry noted that Buttrey had “glassy eyes as well as slurred speech” and had difficulty following commands, including keeping her hands out of her pockets.

She performed poorly on field sobriety tests and beer and whiskey were found in a cooler on the passenger side floorboard.

Buttrey refused to provide a blood draw and a search warrant was obtained for one.

She was charged with DUI and driving on a revoked license and held on $2,000 bond.

The next morning, Buttrey’s father called 911 to report his vehicle stolen.

Buttrey had taken his vehicle without permission and was additionally charged with joyriding and held on a further $500 bond.

• On Dec. 10, Lewisburg Police officers stopped an SUV for speeding on Old Belfast Road.


They learned that the driver, Charlie Williams, had a revoked driver’s license for previous DUI convictions and noted, according to the report, a smell of alcohol in the vehicle and slurred speech on the part of Williams.

Williams allegedly performed poorly on sobriety tests and became upset during the testing, asking, the report said, the officer to let him off with a warning and that he would never drink again.

Williams refused to take a Breathalyzer test so officers obtained a search warrant for a blood draw at Marshall Medical Center.

Williams was charged with DUI--5th offense, violation of the implied consent law, and driving on a revoked license--2nd offense.

Bond was set at $5,000.
