Parker County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Arlington woman on Saturday at a wedding after it was reported that she had sex with someone at the event and urinated on a tree.
Katherine Leigh Mehta, 26, was charged with a third-degree felony for obstruction or retaliation and a class C misdemeanor for public intoxication, according to the probable cause affidavit. The felony was charged in connection with threatening statements Mehta made to officers.
PCSO Deputy Colby Scudder wrote in his report that he responded to the incident at about 9 p.m. at The Springs Event Venue in Weatherford.
"We arrived on scene and made contact with Investigator Scurry and Deputy Gallasso," Scudder wrote in the affidavit. "Investigator Scurry and Deputy Gallasso was working off duty at a wedding at the venue when he was advised by the wedding party that a female subject, further identified as the defendant, had been found having sexual intercourse with a male there."
Officers reported that Mehta's breath and person smelled of alcohol. She was escorted out of the venue by officers and was told to leave the property. Afterward, officers made contact with her again after she was found urinating on a tree in public.
Mehta was believed to be under the influence of alcohol and Alprazolam, which is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. A prescription bottle for the drug in her name was found in her jacket.
“The defendant appeared to be intoxicated to the point where she had lost all her mental and physical faculties,” Scudder wrote in the affidavit.
Mehta was arrested for public intoxication and was being transported to Parker County Jail when she began using expletives and threatening PCSO officers and their families, according to the affidavit.
Mehta was released Sunday after posting $10,738 bail, according to bond records.
