Woman Faces Charges After Traffic Tie-Up

A Greeneville woman who caused a traffic tie-up about 6:15 p.m. Thursday was charged with driving under the influence and simple possession of a Schedule II drug, police Officer Joe Prokop said in a report.

Connie Paulette Guinn, 47, of 203 Starlite Drive, was scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court on the charges.

Officers were alerted by a passerby about a vehicle stopped in the middle of the intersection of West Main Street and Asheville Highway (Tennessee Rt. 70) "that had been there for several minutes," the report said.

Officers approached the vehicle "and found [Guinn] to be in a very impaired state," the report said.

"She was unable to unlock the door, unable to roll down the window, and began driving off while I was standing at the driver's side door," the report said.

Guinn pulled forward "and stopped on the railroad tracks," the report said.

Officers entered the vehicle through the passenger door, put it in park and removed the key from the ignition.

"She began to try to put the vehicle in drive and pull out," the report said.

Guinn told officers she had taken Lortab and muscle relaxant Carisprodol pills, and both were found in a Lortab bottle.

Officers later found a white bottle without a label in Guinn's purse that contained Carisprodol pills, the report said.

"She stated she had been taking them due to extreme stress," the report said.

Guinn was unsteady on her feet, had slurred speech and was disoriented, the report said.
