Mom Drops Pants In Restaurant Before Being Arrested For Crime Spree With Son
Authorities report that an angry mom dropped her pants in a Lawrenceburg restaurant last week before she and her son were taken into custody for a crime spree.
Lawrenceburg Police officers were summoned to Pat’s Café, 2111 Massey Avenue, Thursday morning regarding a woman who was yelling and cursing at employees and customers.
An employee told reporting officers that the woman had come in, saying that her car was stuck behind the restaurant and asking for someone to help her with the vehicle. The employee said that the woman became irate, then “dropped her pants in front of everyone” before exiting.
The officer reports he approached a vehicle in a grassy area behind the restaurant, as a woman and man got inside. He was able to identify the pair as Kimberly Diane Keener, 34, and son Christopher Chase Wilson, 18, both of 71 Periwinkle Path, Leoma.
When he questioned how they had become stuck on the soft ground, Keener told the officer they “were dropping items off at Goodwill (adjacent to the property), and got stuck.” The officer received permission to search the car, and reports finding several items inside, including a .1 gram marijuana stem and a frosty bottle that contained only a small amount of alcohol.
While they were being arrested, officers report that Keener “fell to the ground” and Wilson said that she was having a seizure. Emergency medical personnel were summoned to the scene, however officers note that Keener refused transport.
Wilson reportedly failed to perform satisfactorily on field sobriety tests and was transported to Crockett Hospital for a blood alcohol test. Both were then transported to the Lawrence County Jail.
While Wilson was being booked on charges of first offense DUI and simple possession of marijuana, and Keener was being booked on charges of public intoxication, officers report that she fell to the floor and again appeared to be having a seizure.
Medical technicians were summoned once again and Keener was transported to the hospital. Doctors there checked, then released her. She was then returned to the jail for booking.
A few hours later, reports show that owners of Whiteway Barber Shop on South Locust Avenue reported a burglary at the business. Owners reported numerous items missing and extensive damages inside. Owners estimated loss and damages to total $2,000.
An officer notified investigators that while searching Keener’s car he had noticed hair clippers inside, along with black garbage bags of miscellaneous items. The shop owner was taken to the vehicle and identified his property.
A search warrant was obtained for the pair’s home. Inside officers report finding numerous items stolen from the barber shop.
Around 10:30 a.m. officers report reviewing surveillance video at Goodwill, 2006 North Locust Avenue. The tape reportedly showed Keener and Wilson taking items from the dock area and loading them into their car. Five large plastic bags full of items were stolen along with a mop.
As a result of the subsequent investigations Wilson and Keener were served with warrants charging them with theft of property, burglary, theft over $500, and vandalism over $500.
Both Keener and Wilson have been scheduled to answer the charges through Lawrence County General Sessions Court on April 7, 2011.
