"Drooling" woman with "slurred speech" arrested after trying to buy straw at gas station

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

A Rowan County Sheriff's deputy arrested a Kannapolis woman on Wednesday morning for driving while impaired, as well as several drug charges, after the woman's behavior raised the suspicion of a clerk at a gas station.

According to the report, a clerk at the BP on Unity Church Road called 911 to report that a woman was trying to buy a drinking straw from the station and that she was acting odd.

When Deputy G.G. Gordy arrived, he saw the woman driving a burgundy Chevrolet Suburban on Unity Church Road.  Noting that her driving was "erratic," the deputy attempted to get the woman to pull over.  At one point she did stop, but then drove farther before stopping in front of 773 Unity Church Road.

Deputy Gordy identified the woman as Cynthia Darlene Davis, 43, of Cade Lane in Kannapolis,  Gordy wrote that Davis was "drooling from both corners of her mouth," and that her speech was slurred.

Gordy asked Davis if she had any drugs, and Davis said that she did not, according to the report.  Gordy asked, and was given permission to search the Suburban.

According to report, Gordy found a red straw with "residue" on both ends, as well as 18.75 dosage units of hydrocodone and 11 Xanax bars.

Gordy took Davis to NorthEast Medical Center for a blood test, then took her back to Salisbury to be booked into the Rowan County Detention Center.

Davis is charged with two felony counts of trafficking opium, two felony counts of drug possession, one felony count of maintaining a vehicle for illegal drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving while impaired.  Bond was set at $201,500.
