According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, after falling asleep at the wheel with a beer can in her hand, a Greenwood woman almost rolled her truck into a ditch. 35-year-old Erica Nicole Cobb was later charged with a DUI. Early Sunday morning, officers were dispatched to a suspicious vehicle parked in the middle of Highway 71. Upon arrival, deputies found a Dodge pickup truck roadway with the engine running. “Deputies attempted to make contact with the single occupant, who was seated behind the wheel, passed out and holding a beer can,” a Jackson County Sheriff’s Office release stated. “After being awoken by the deputies, the driver removed her foot from the brake pedal and the truck began rolling at a slow pace down the roadway.” One of the deputies continued to run alongside the truck beating on the window and giving commands for the driver to put the vehicle in park. The truck continued to travel toward a ditch before the driver corrected the course of direction and traveled alongside the roadway narrowly missing several mail boxes and a pole. Deputies had Cobb perform field sobriety exercises and she was arrested for driving under the influence based of deputies’ evaluations.
