“I cannot believe you all would do this to me, I’m a school nurse,” proclaimed Christa Winn, 46, of Ladson, when she was charged with public intoxication Dec. 23 at Summerville Fire Station 4 on Sheep Island Road, according to a Summerville Police Department incident report.
Summerville Police originally responded to a report of a sexual assault. However, once they arrived they discovered Winn to be intoxicated. Winn told police the assault happened somewhere near Goat Island Road but refused to give police more details.
When asked if she meant Sheep Island Road she responded “I guess, they are all the same to me.”
Because portions of Sheep Island road are out of SPD’s jurisdiction, Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office Was called to respond. According to the incident report, neither agency was able to get much more than “I know I am drunk” from Winn. Officers were unable to locate anyone to retrieve Winn’s vehicle and, out of fear for public safety, would not let Winn drive. She was arrested and charged with Public Intoxication.
The incident report also says that while being transported to SPD for processing she attempted to kick out the rear passenger windows of the patrol car. Upon arrival at the station, she became violent toward officers and kicked one. The officer declined to press charges.
Winn refused to cooperate with officers during the booking process, not allowing her fingerprints or photo to be taken.
The incident report indicates Winn was very upset about being arrested and told police “my life is over now and it’s all your fault.” “I called you guys because I was attacked!”
The incident report states Winn refused to provide details of the attack saying “I can’t report him, doll,” when an officer asked if she knew the identity of the attacker and if it was a Summerville High School student. She responded with “what, are y’all gonna tell my husband! Don’t want him to know anything, ever. He’s a lawyer!”
She repeatedly told police she could “fix” the charges.
She was remanded to Berkeley County Detention Center.
