Orange woman arrested for public intoxication
A 41 year old Orange woman was arrested for public intoxication when she was involved in a disturbance at a residence in the 500 block of Gardenia. On arrival to the scene, police made contact with the complainant, who advised that Valerie Lynne Berwick showed up at his house and wanted to come in.
When Officer Bernard made contact with Berwick, he could immediately detected the odor of an unknown alcoholic beverage on her person. Her speech was slurred and her words were running together. Officer Bernard asked if she had been drinking and she replied she had a six pack.
Berwick was very unsteady on her feet and kept losing her balance. The male who called police did not wish to take care or custody of Berwick, and no family members could be contacted. She was placed into custody and transported to the Orange County Jail.
