LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police were called to a Louisville tanning salon Thursday afternoon after a customer wouldn't come out of a tanning station, according to an arrest report.
It happened at the Sun Tan City on Dixie Hwy., near Valley Station Road.
Police say they were called to the salon after employees said 27-year-old Katrina Jackson got into a tanning station for a 20 minute tan, then failed to come out at the end of her session. The employees told police they tried to make contact with her inside the tanning station after they noticed she was 10 minutes late, but she would not respond.
Police say the employees banged on the door for 30 minutes, but she would not come out.
Both the Louisville Metro Police Department and EMS were dispatched to the salon, and they eventually got Jackson out of the tanner.
Police say her voice was slurred, she could not keep her balance and she didn't know what day it was. Her eyes were glassy, "pin-pointed" and she did not respond to light, according to an arrest report. Police say she told them she had no medical conditions.
They also said she was, "loud, and caused patrons of the business to stop and stare."
When they searched her purse, officers allegedly found a mirror with, "white residue" on it.
Jackson was arrested and charged with public intoxication on a controlled substance (excluding alcohol), possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance and disorderly conduct.
Police say she fell asleep "numerous times" on her way to jail.
