31-year-old Katilyn Brooke Taft was arguing with her husband in their vehicle near 7th Avenue and McGavock Street in the early hours of April 22nd. Officers observed this and approached them, noticing she showed multiple signs of inebriation while sitting in the driver’s seat. The officers located a Glock 43 compact handgun in the driver’s side door storage compartment, in plain view, next to Taft. She told them the firearm was hers and provided them with her Alabama concealed handgun permit. She consented to sobriety tests, performed poorly, and then admitted to having 5-6 “Vegas Bombs” at the bar. Taft agreed to provide a breath sample, resulting in 0.123 BAC%, and then was taken into custody for driving under the influence and weapon possession while under the influence.
