Two arrested, intoxicated at Waffle House with 3 children
LONDON, Ky. (WTVQ) – London police received a complaint on Sunday, just after 7 p.m., about a man and a woman in a Waffle House who appeared intoxicated – with three children.
Officers arrived at West Hwy 80 Waffle House and found 33 year old William L. Allen and 33 year old Amanda Porter, both from London, KY. Officers say Porter was showing clear and obvious signs of being intoxicated – slurred speech, dilated pupils, and had difficulty coherently explaining the situation to police.
Meanwhile, officers say Allen had fallen asleep multiple times while holding eating utensils, also had slurred speech, and was unsteady on his feet.
Porter told police she had driven Allen and the three children (agest 4, 5, and 7) to Waffle House. She told officers she had ingested Suboxone, and had a prescription for it. Officers report they found two handguns hidden on Allen, despite not having a concealed weapons license.
Both people were arrested, charged with public intoxication (non alcoholic) 2nd degree wanton endangerment, and Allen was additionally charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.
