A disturbance in the parking lot of the Rappahannock Regional Jail Friday night led to an arrest.

On March 11th at 11:21 p.m. Deputy C.S. Harding responded to the Rappahannock Regional Jail for a disturbance. The investigation revealed Zion Isaac, 21, of Spotsylvania, had shown up several hours late to serve his 30 day sentence at the jail. When staff explained they could not accept him due to the late arrival, Isaac began banging on doors and windows in the lobby.

Deputy Harding noticed Isaac had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech and arrested him for public intoxication. Adding to Isaac’s problems, jail staff reviewed video of Isaac in the parking lot which showed him attempting to enter cars in the lot. Video revealed Isaac found an unlocked car, opened the door and got inside, setting off the alarm.

Isaac was charged with public intoxication and vehicle tampering and got his wish to be admitted to the jail. With the rising gas prices, we appreciated the short transport.
