Bailing out a friend? Don’t do it drunk


March 14th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A Clearmont woman learned a hard lesson early this (Thursday) morning, when she went to bail an allegedly intoxicated friend out of the Montgomery County Jail. Officials say 33-year-old Clothilda Dawn Cales was arrested after a receptionist at the Montgomery County Law Enforcement Center detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from the woman. Cales had come to the jail to bail out another woman, but the jailer can only release an intoxicated prisoner to a sober adult. Cales blew a .093 on the breathalyzer test, which is above the state legal limit.

Both woman were being held in the Montgomery County Jail pending an appearance before the magistrate.
