Deputies arrested a Williamson woman following a crash along Route 104 in Wayne County on Saturday.

During the late-evening hours deputies arrested Tishia Murphy, 34, of Williamson for criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of stolen property, driving while intoxicated, driving with a BAC over 0.18%, and failure to keep right, according to a news release.


Deputies arrived at the scene of the accident and observed Murphy attempting to drive her vehicle out of the ditch and back onto Route 104.

She was asked to exit the vehicle and deputies observed a handgun on the driver’s side floorboard. They later determined it was stolen. As Murphy exited the vehicle, she showed signs of intoxication. She ultimately was found to have a BAC of 0.22%.

Murphy was taken into custody and will answer the charges at a later date.
