Woman allegedly urinated in front of police

DICKSON CITY – A woman who called police to report that her tires were slashed was discovered urinating in front of her vehicle when they arrived Sunday morning, according to an affidavit.

Jamie Lee Compton, 25, of Norfolk, Va., faces charges for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness following the alleged April 10 incident.

According to an affidavit:

Dickson City police responded to the Days Inn hotel on the Scranton Carbondale Highway at 7 a.m. for a report of a female who was allegedly sexually assaulted and who had her tires slashed.

Police said they discovered Compton squatting in front of her vehicle, urinating, with her dress pulled up to her waist. As a hotel employee tried to repair her tire, Compton allegedly began screaming at police and was “visibly intoxicated.”

She threw her purse on a passenger seat, and police observed a burnt blunt in a cup holder that later tested positive as marijuana, a small plastic baggie containing an unknown substance, $600 in “drug rolls” and an additional $74 in $1 bills.

Compton was transported to Community Medical Center for treatment for the alleged assault, but she refused all medical examinations.

She was held for a lack of $10,000 bail after an April 10 arraignment. A preliminary hearing is set for April 18.
