According to a Georgia State Patrol incident report, On September 2nd, 2022, at 9:35 PM, TFC2 Terry was participating in an approved DUI road check on Old Calhoun Road at Shannon Road. A 2016 Jeep Wrangler being driven by Emily Ann Adcock, 37, of Cartersville, approached. Trooper Terry reported, “While [I] was speaking to her, [I] noticed the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her breath. [I] asked her how much she had to drink, and she stated she hadn’t drank anything.” After pulling to the side and being asked again, she then stated she only had one beer at her parents’ house. She stated the beer was a 12-ounce Bud Light. During field sobriety testing, Emily showed several signs of impairment. The trooper then asked her again how much she had to drink after performing field sobriety. This time she stated she only had “two beers.” Trooper Terry reported, “[I] then advised her she was under arrest for DUI. [I] advised her [I] would not cuff her at this time because her 9 and 12-year-old children were watching the incident from the back seat of the Jeep she was driving.” Ms. Adcock was appreciative and thanked the trooper. Emily agreed to the state test, where she showed a BAC of .094 at the Rome City Police Department. Emily was booked into the Floyd County Jail and charged with DUI alcohol 0.08 grams or more and DUI child endangerment x2
