Woman unable to upgrade her phone at AT&T, causes disturbance and gets arrested


A woman was recently arrested for causing a disturbance at an AT&T store in Berea.

According to reports, 29-year-old Sarah Griffin called the Berea Police Department in reference to AT&T refusing to help her buy a phone.

Griffin was trying to upgrade her phone for $35 but employees at the store stated that they were unable to upgrade her plan for that amount. Reports state that employees explained to her multiple times on how she can upgrade.

Griffin became argumentative with officers and employees. Police say that she was acting erratic and placed her under arrest for disorderly conduct.

Upon search, officers found a metal gum container with a plastic straw and a white powdery substance suspected to be methamphetamine in her backpack. According to a citation, there was also a cigarette carton with a clear plastic baggie containing marijuana. Griffin told police that she snorted methamphetamine that day.

Griffin’s eye pupils were allegedly observed to be constricted. It was determined that she was still under the influence of meth.

Griffin was charged with 2nd degree disorderly conduct, controlled substance public intoxication (excludes alcohol), resisting arrest, 1st degree possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine) and possession of marijuana. She was taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
