Officers saw broken glass and other items strewn throughout the trailer. Evans showed them her broken phone and confirmed that Bean knocked it out of her hand while on the phone with 911.

The two showed signs of drunkenness and had bottles of alcohol next to them. Bean was asked to stand up and initially said he would not go. He then agreed to go with the police but started cursing at Evans and the officers.

Police discovered a bottle of hydrocodone pills in Bean's pocket. He denied knowing what the pills were and said they were not his.

The other officer told Evans she had warrants for her arrest. She grabbed a nearby vodka bottle and drank as much as she could before being arrested.

The two were taken to jail in separate vehicles. 

While in the booking area, Evans reached out and grabbed an officer's crotch.

A jailer found another hydrocodone pill near Bean, making 15 pills recovered during the incident.

Evans was charged with disorderly conduct for grabbing the officer. Bean was charged with terroristic threatening, interference with emergency communications and possession of a controlled substance. His bail was set at $10,000. Bean was to be served a no-contact order once he was sober.
