32-year-old Karah Bobo was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication after deputies attempted to help her while she was crying and appeared to be in what they stated was a mental crisis due to being intoxicated.
On October 19th, Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputies Adams, Parker, and Torres responded to an Emergency Commitment at 7095 Presmond Road. They saw Karah Bobo in the passenger seat of a white Chevy Malibu whimpering and bleeding from her left knee.
There was blood smeared on the passenger side of the door. Deputies asked Bobo was she, okay then she immediately screamed so loud at the deputies that her neighbors came outside. She continued to cry and scream and the deputies stated they could smell a strong odor of intoxicant coming from Bobo’s breath. Reportedly, Deputy Adam observed her to be in a mental crisis and detained her in a patrol car. Bobo kicked the rear window and continued to show characteristics and the behavior of a person in a mental crisis.
Shelby County Fire Department made the scene for a welfare check but Bobo refused any type of treatment. Due to the high level of intoxication and her mental state, Deputy Adam concluded that she would be an emergency committed to safety concerns. As Deputy Torres was walking Bobo to the door of the Mobile Crisis building she attempted to jump into a big puddle of mud and water. This caused the deputy’s body-worn camera to fall into the puddle. She continued to refuse to comply and became belligerent when the staff tried to take her vitals.
Karah Bobo was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication. She was released on $350 bond.
