According to police reports:
Letishia Ann Halfacre, 29, of 1507-B Taylor St., faces charges of hit and run and driving while license suspended, as well as three counts of violating the Georgia Controlled Substances Act after cocaine, marijuana, and several pills were found in her purse at the time of the incident.
Fort Oglethorpe police were sent to the BiLo at 1875 Battlefield Parkway after dispatch informed them of an ac-cident in which the driver had gone into the grocery store following the crash.
Upon arrival on the scene, officer Gregory Plemons found a Catoosa County sheriff’s deputy was already on scene trying to make contact with Halfacre.
“When I asked why she left the scene of the accident, she stated that it was because she had to pee,” Plemons said in the report.
After placing Halfacre under arrest, digital weighing scales, two clear plastic bags containing suspected co-caine, a clear plastic bag containing suspected marijuana, and several bottles of pills were found in her possession.
“After seizing the items, Halfacre said that the powder was cocaine and that the blue pills were Xanax,” Plemons said.
On of the witnesses at the scene of the accident claims to have been sitting at the traffic light on Battlefield Parkway facing west when she was struck from behind by Halfacre, before Halfacre darted into the BiLo parking lot, striking another vehicle, then running into the store.
Halfacre was transported to Catoosa County jail without incident.
