JONESBORO, Ark. – A woman said she fell asleep behind the wheel of her car because it was “too quiet.” But officers found another reason she may have not been at her wits during the incident.

About 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, the incident began at Cedar Manor apartments. An officer, Jeremy Wheelis from Jonesboro Police Department, is a courtesy officer there and was contacted by the landlord. The report says a woman was asleep in her vehicle next to the office with the car running.

When the officer arrived, the woman was still out cold. He tried waking her up but it took him physically shaking her to get her awake.

The officer asked why she was asleep in the parking lot and she said “because it was quiet,” the report says. She also was not able to tell the officer what time it was or where she was.

The next mistake the woman made came when the officer asked if he could search her vehicle. She said yes, the report said, and exited the vehicle. When she stepped out, that’s when the officer noticed a bag of crystal meth under her.

Rebecca Danielle Parker, 25, of Jonesboro, was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, a felony. She was taken to Craighead County Detention Center.
