On June 3rd, Clarksville Police Office Joffer was alerted to a public intoxication at the Dollar General located on 2105 Trenton Road. According to an affidavit, someone reported two females were there with children in tow and displaying signs of impairment. While speaking with Cox, Officer Joffer observed her slurring her speech and rambling with a droopy eye.

The report claims Cox also didn’t know how many of her children were with her at the time. The officer contacted her spouse who confirmed the whereabouts of another child and accepted responsibility for the child who was with her. During booking, Cox was found with 6 alprazolam pills and a cut-down straw.

Heather Cox was arrested and charged with public intoxication, contraband in a penal facility, simple possession of alprazolam, and unlawful drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at $12,000.

Cox pled guilty to one possession charge and public intoxication and the contraband and paraphernalia charged were dismissed. The DORL and second possession charges are still pending.
