A New London woman that police say was falling-down drunk now faces felony and misdemeanor charges.
Amanda P. Pantalons, 31, New London, is charged with obstructing an officer and bail jumping.
At 2:25 a.m. Saturday, May 23, New London Police Officer Mike Harlow was dispatched to the Waterfront Bar in New London in response to a report that a woman fell down and hit her head.
According to the criminal complaint, Harlow saw a man and a woman stumbling away from the bar when he arrived at the scene. The woman fell down on the street.
Harlow approached the woman and asked if she needed an ambulance. She declined.
When he asked the woman her name, she identified herself with a different first name but the same last name, but the middle initial and birth date she gave the officer matched the records of Amanda Pantalons, the complaint says.
Amanda Pantalons was out on a $2,000 signature bond after she had been charged in October 2014 with a third drunken driving offense, obstructing an officer and discharging bodily fluids at an officer. A condition of her bond was that she maintain absolute sobriety and participate in the Soberlink program.
Harlow arrested Pantalons. A preliminary breath test indicated she had a 0.18 blood-alcohol level.
At 2:45 a.m. Friday, June 12, Harlow was called out to an apartment building on Fairview Drive in response to a complaint that neighbors had come home drunk and were yelling at each other.
Harlow subsequently arrested Pantalons again, and a preliminary breath test indicated she has a blood-alcohol level of 0.198.
