Woman who admits to smoking pot arrested

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a woman Sunday after she allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana.

Deputies were taking a report when Kayla Hollis, 21, of Tahlequah, arrived at the scene. Hollis had been “acting weird,” witnesses reported, and had been involved in a fight with another woman.

When Hollis arrived and met deputies, she allegedly smelled of marijuana and was “not making sense,” Deputy Jarrick Snyder reported.

She allegedly admitted she had smoked marijuana earlier in the day.

Snyder arrested Hollis, who later refused to speak with jailers because she felt she should be read her rights before cooperating.

Jailers found a rolled-up piece of tinfoil containing a burnt residue when they were booking Hollis in to the Cherokee County Detention Center.

A charge of bringing contraband into a jail was added to her booking information.
