Wife, daughter arrested, husband later arrested after showing up to the Chattooga County jail drunk

According to a Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office and Summerville Police Department incident reports, on Saturday, April 17th, 2021, a wife and her daughter were both arrested in the early morning hours at a license and safety check point located at the intersection of Filter Plant Road and Back Berryton Road. The husband was arrested hours later in front of the jail. Mackenzie Dean Stricklin, 19, was asked to step out of her vehicle shortly after midnight when Deputy Austin Weber “detected the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle,” according to the incident report. Deputy Weber located in the center console in a plastic condiment cup an orange oval pill inscribed `11-974-3o’, which he identified as amphetamine. The deputy also located in the passenger side floorboard a bag, which contained a multi-colored silicone smoking device and a metal cylindrical grinding device. Stricklin was arrested for possession or use of drug-related objects and possession of Schedule II narcotic. Approximately 20 minutes into the interaction with deputies, Stricklin’s mother, Amy Elizabeth Treadaway, 41, and Jeremy Max Treadaway, 40, both of Summerville, “approached and parked in front of the vehicle they were attending to. Amy stated she was there because the vehicle that was stopped belonged to her daughter. Deputy Clark reported, “[I] was alerted driver A. Treadaway had an odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from her person. [I] approached A. Treadaway, now standing outside her vehicle, observing her having a sway to her person standing still. [I] inquired if she had been consuming alcohol. She replied she had two beers earlier with dinner. [I] detected a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from her person. [I] observed her eyes having a watery and glossy appearance.” The deputy asked her to perform Field Sobriety Testing. She was argumentative with the deputy. Amy refused the state implied consent test and was arrested for DUI-driving under the influence of alcohol refusal. Deputies stated that the passenger Jeremy was deemed too intoxicated to drive the vehicle after Amy was arrested. According to the report, he was transported home by responsible parties who took control of the vehicle. A few hours later, at around 3:00 AM, Jeremy was found passed out by Summerville PD in the driver’s seat of the vehicle in front of the sheriff’s office with three open containers found in the vehicle. According to the incident report, Jeremy was “belligerent with officers” and was booked into the jail for public intoxication and open container. According to arrest reports, Jeremy has several previous DUI arrests.
