Man Arrested for Public Intoxication

McKenzie, Tenn.- According to a report from the McKenzie Police Department, Ptl. Kyle Beauchamp cited Steven Houston Hampton, age 36 of 1845 Ball Creek Road of Buena Vista, on Monday, Sept. 19th for public intoxication.

Beauchamp was sitting at the gas pumps at a local gas station parking lot, when a red car pulled up next to him. The female driver of the vehicle stated to Beauchamp that she wanted the man that was in the backseat of her car out of her car. Beauchamp was confused by the statement and asked the driver what she meant.

The driver asked if Beauchamp was the one who pulled her over earlier, because the man in the backseat had his feet hanging out of the window.  Beauchamp told the driver that he was not the officer who pulled her over earlier and at that point the driver of the vehicle told Beauchamp to get the officer who pulled her over earlier.

The driver then told Beauchamp that the man was drunk and she was going to take him home, but she couldn’t deal with him anyone and said she wanted him out of her car. Beauchamp then reached to get his body camera out of his patrol car where it had previously been charging when the driver told Beauchamp to not bother with getting the man out of her car since the man got out of the car and was heading into the gas station.

Beauchamp looked and found the subject identified as Steve Hampton fell over onto the trunk of the car he had been riding in.  Beauchamp said he could smell the odor of alcohol and due to the fact that Hampton was unable to stand and do sobriety tests.

Beauchamp took Hampton into custody because he felt Hampton was in public and Hampton was a danger to himself and others. Beauchamp took Hampton into custody for public intoxication and transported him to the Carroll County Jail for booking.
