TINKER FORK — A woman was arrested last Friday after police allegedly found her intoxicated while operating an ATV on a roadway, with two small children aboard.
According to Kentucky State Police records, Brittany Story, 23, of Beaver, was traveling west on Route 3380 near Tinker Fork last Friday. Story was riding an ATV with two young children aboard, ages 5 and 12, when she was stopped by Trooper Brian Watson for operating on the roadway.
Watson says when he made contact with Story, he noticed her acting “nervous,” and that when she removed her dark tinted glasses, “she had bloodshot eyes and constricted pupils.” Watson also noted that Story had pill residue in her right nostril.
Story allegedly told the officer that she had snorted a Percocet and smoked marijuana approximately one hour before being stopped.
Story was arrested and transported to Highlands Regional Medical Center, where she refused all tests. She was later transported to and lodged at the Floyd County Detention Center.
Story was later released on a surety bond.
