Katherine Galloway, 36, was charged about 2:30 a.m. Friday by Greeneville police with driving under the influence-2nd offense, DUI, assault, driving on a revoked license and possession of a legend drug without a prescription.

Police were called to the parking lot of the Greeneville Walmart about an "intoxicated person," Officer Burton Ellis said in a report.

Officers came into contact with Galloway, who displayed "noticeable involuntary jerking and twitching," kept dropping items in her hands and could not stand still, the report said.

Galloway told police she drove a Ford Explorer sport utility vehicle to Walmart. The SUV was next to her. She gave officers a driver's license that was found to be revoked in December 2017 for DUI, the report said.

Galloway did poorly on field sobriety tests. She allegedly told officers she had used methamphetamine three days earlier.

Golloway consented to a blood draw and while being taken to a hospital allegedly "became aggravated and aggressive," spitting through the back seat patrol car partition and hitting an officer on the side of the face and right arm, the report said.

Two Gabapentin pills were found in Galloway's purse during an inventory of the SUV.

Galloway is held on bond pending a first scheduled appearance Friday in General Sessions Court.
