The suspect ran out the back door of the home as deputies arrived. She was intoxicated and unsteady on her feet. She was placed under arrest for Public Intoxication. She was placed in a patrol car while a statement was taken from the homeowner. The suspect began hitting her head against the bars in the back of the patrol unit.  She was taken out of the car to be handcuffed. As deputies were attempting to handcuff her, she dropped her pants and urinated.

39-year-old Wendie Rachelle Lawson of Fultondale was arrested and charged with Public Intoxication, Public Lewdness, and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

While on the way to the jail, Lawson bragged to the deputy that she had just intentionally urinated in the patrol car. She stated, “well, this car ain’t new no more”.

Lawson posted $900 bond and was released once sober pending court proceedings.
