summonses for Jodie D. Miller, age 30, 27360 State Route 7 Lot

Walsh Road, Vincent, for disorderly conduct by fighting. Initially
arguing over an unwelcome houseguest, the siblings later quarreled
over how Ms. Miller was disciplining her daughter. During the
argument at the Speedway Race Track, Ms. Miller threw her brother's
grill to the ground, prompting Mr. Miller to push her with his
chest. That action caused Ms. Miller to fall to the ground.
Ms. Miller picked up the unwelcome houseguest, Ebony N. Burks,
age 32, 232 14th Street, Elyria, OH, up from the Washington
County Jail several days earlier and said she was no longer
welcome because she was rude to everyone she met and would drink
all day. Ms. Miller said her family members would not allow
Ms. Burks to stay with them either. Questioned by Lt. Stackpole,
Ms. Burks appeared intoxicated and said she'd been consuming
vodka most of the day. Ms. Burks agreed to leave a Miller residence
on Woodruff Road in Vincent and was transported by cab to the
local bus station. However, the cab returned a short while later
with Ms. Burks and the cab driver stated his passenger was refusing
to pay the fare. Informed she was not permitted to remain at
the residence, Ms. Burks replied “you're going to have
to take me to jail, because I'm not going anywhere.” Lt.
Stackpole then arrested Ms. Burks for disorderly conduct by
intoxication and transported her to the Washington County Jail.
