Police Beat: Woman arrested at restaurant

TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police officers arrested a local woman at Charlie’s Chicken when she was found inside her vehicle acting disoriented.

Officer Steven Smith said 49-year-old Christina M. Taylor was in the vehicle and tried to drive away when Smith knocked on the window. Smith said Taylor was “looking left to right like she was trying to figure out where the knocking was coming from.” It took Taylor about a minute to turn the vehicle off. She allegedly believed she was at Burger King, rather than Charlie’s Chicken, and refused to take the state’s blood test, police said. An inventory of Taylor’s property revealed a pipe with a green, leafy substance. She was charged with actual physical control and possession of paraphernalia.
