22-year-old Tierra Johnson was charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and resisting official detention after arguing with a man in a Shell parking lot before they both refuse to listen to officers’ commands.
On October 21st, Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputies Johnston, Foster, and Reynolds arrived at a Shell gas station, located at 1254 North Collierville Arlington Road. Originally they were dispatched for a suspicious call but it became a drunkenness call. Upon arrival, the deputies observed Davion Durant and Tierra Johnson arguing with one another.
When Deputy Foster approached Johnson, he smelled alcohol on her breath as she spoke. She became irritated and walked away from the deputy, so he detained her. Johnson did not comply with Deputy Foster’s commands and resisted arrest. While she was resisting, she stepped on and broke her glasses. Afterward, Deputies Foster and Reynolds went to Durant who also smelled of alcohol. When deputies attempted to detain Durant, he resisted and stated, “I will fight y’all if you try to spray me.” Out of fear for their safety, the deputies placed Durant into custody.
Tierra Johnson was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and resisting official detention. She was later released on her own recognizance.
