Intoxicated Argument Results in Wanton Endangerment Charge for Berea Woman


A Madison County Sheriff’s Deputy was recently dispatched to investigate an “unknown problem” in the Muddy Creek area of Berea. According to police dispatch, they could hear screaming on the phone call as well as information which lead them to speculate a firearm may be involved in the incident.

As the officer made their way to the front door of the home, they say they observed Marilyn Grant allegedly concealing a gun in her boot. When speaking with Grant, police noted that she was exhibiting signs of intoxication through slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. The officer added that Grant was highly hostile towards them.

According to the second party in the household, he and Grant had gotten involved in a fight over a remote control.

Following the fight, Grant allegedly went to a bedroom to retrieve a firearm. The other individual heard the gun rack and removed the weapon from Grant’s possession to prevent the use of it.

The deputy claimed that Grant’s behavior exhibited an extreme indifference to the value of human life, and subsequently arrested her on a charge of 1st Degree Wanton Endangerment.
