Woman nearly drives into officer, caught with meth

LAWTON, Okla._A woman was arrested early Thursday morning after she nearly drove her semi-truck into an officer.

Police say Kimberly Ammons was driving an orange semi-truck at 12:40 a.m. Thursday when she exited northbound I-44 to westbound Lee Boulevard. Ammons crossed the eastbound lanes of Lee Boulevard and nearly hit an officer once she made it to the westbound lanes.

The officer turned his emergency lights on, but Ammons continued to drive slowly along Lee Boulevard. He started using his siren, but she still didn’t stop. Other officers got in front of Ammons before she eventually stopped at Southwest 2nd Street and Lee Boulevard.

Ammons was asked to step out of the vehicle twice before “she started stumbling around inside the truck looking for a shoe.” Police say she had trouble staying balanced as she got out of the truck and “appeared to be biting at the air” at one point. Ammons agreed to take a Standardized Field Sobriety Test and failed multiple parts, but her blood-alcohol content came back as 0.0; she was taken to a local hospital to give a blood sample.

When she was taken to the Lawton City Jail and was being booked in for driving under the influence and failure to yield from a stop sign, police found a compact mirror with meth in her bra. Police asked her about the meth and she told them “it was supposed to be cocaine.” Drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia was then added to her list of charges.
