Hospital staff reportedly cleared the woman after advising she was intoxicated and she was transported to jail. She was released on Wednesday, according to arrest and jail reports.

Officers were dispatched to the intersection of Church and East Park Streets at 3:19 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27 in reference to multiple 911 calls reporting a woman acting strangely.
