“She appeared to be highly intoxicated and incoherent and didn’t know where she was,” police said in the report.
The officer opened the rear left passenger door, reached in and pulled Merritt out to safety.
Merritt was placed in the officer’s patrol car because she was stammering in her speech and could barely stand up, police said in the report.
She was later taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for observation and was in police custody Friday afternoon.
“There was substantial damage done to the parking structure and her vehicle was impounded … for safe keeping,” police said.
