Courtney Taylor Schanlaber, 21 years old – allegedly threatened to ram a building with a Chevrolet while intoxicated, then allegedly did it.

Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol Deputy Morgan arrived quickly, met with the people at the motorcycle shop and determined that the building and the motorcycle had been damaged.  Dep. Morgan put the description of the suspect vehicle out to the other patrol units.

GCSO Corporal Swinney located a vehicle matching the description a couple of minutes later as it was passing DeSoto Park on Park Avenue.  GCSO Sergeant Kellar immediately arrived to assist Cpl. Swinney with the traffic stop.  It was determined that this Chevrolet Impala had damage consistent with the damage to the motorcycle shop building.  Standarized Field Sobriety Tests were administered to the driver of the Impala.  Courtney Taylor Schanlaber, 21 years old, was arrested and transported to the Garland County Detention Center for processing.

Ms. Schanlaber was charged with DWI, Refusal To Submit To Chemical Testing, Criminal Mischief and Felony Criminal Mischief.  Her bond amounts totaled $4,500.

Approximately 10 days ago, this same suspect was arrested by Hot Springs Police at her residence on Hobson Avenue.  The HSPD report from that incident alleges that an intoxicated Ms. Schanlaber ran underneath a car, refused to come out and kicked an HSPD Officer several times as he was arresting her.
