A community service officer intercepted Coyne on her way back to the car. Crestwood police then arrested her.
Clinton and Obama are falling all over themselves in order to take care of your every need. And it will be mandatory. Wow, sign me up.

Mark Brannon . . . told the deputy he was sick and in need of medical help. But instead of getting medical assistance, Brannon -- who does take pain medication -- was arrested for DUI. Randy Brannon says his father "blew a zero on the breathalyzer, but they wouldn't release him until 2:00 a.m."

Although there is a medical unit in Central booking, Brannon's family says Mark didn't receive medical attention until he was released. He then went straight to a doctor. "He could hardly walk. He was gasping for air," Randy explains.
