Amy McTeer, 40, is expected to be charged Tuesday in Logan County with possession of a controlled substance, a felony. Guthrie police said they found a pipe containing “white residue” in her pocket, a prosecutor said Monday.
McTeer was arrested about 3:30 a.m. Monday outside Love's, 2530 E Noble Ave., on complaints of possession of paraphernalia and public intoxication, after she flagged down an officer and said she needed a ride to her home in Nichols Hills, according to a police report.
She told police she met an unidentified man at the Huddle House truck stop in Oklahoma City, and said he asked her to go with him to Montana or North Dakota. While riding in the man's truck, she said, “they were smoking out of glass pipes,” and “that he must have slipped something into her pipe” because she “was feeling really funny,” police reported.
McTeer was “talking very fast and constantly licking her lips as she spoke,” police said.
“While speaking with McTeer she was extremely delirious and unable to perform any simple tasks,” officer David Leshar said. “McTeer's details of the story continued to change every time she told it.”
McTeer and the man in question appeared to be hugging and kissing in a booth about 2:30 a.m., according to a security video viewed by police. The man “then left the store and didn't return,” police said.
Logan County Assistant District Attorney Billy Wheeler said McTeer likely will be charged with felony possession and two misdemeanors. She was in Guthrie's city jail Monday with bail set at $2,000.
