Case 07-001343

On January 27, 2007 hours I was on normal patrol in the area of Fairburn Road and Sunbelt rental when the vehicle in front of me drifted toward the right fog line of its lane almost striking the curb. The vehicle was a white in color Kia Sedona van displaying tag WX84H3. I activated my
camera and continued to follow the vehicle. Upon approaching the traffic light at the westbound ramps to 1-20, which was red, the vehicle stopped
approximately eight to ten car lengths short of the baulk line. There were no other cars in front of the vehicle. The traffic light turned green and we proceeded through. Upon doing so the vehicle drifted to the right side of the lane touching the right lane divider. As we approached the lights at the eastbound ramps the light was red. The vehicle proceeded through the light on red and across the baulk line, not stopping until in the middle of the
intersection. The vehicle sat in the middle of the intersection blocking the off ramp from 1-20 eastbound until the light turned green. Upon the vehicle proceeding through I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle. The vehicle stopped just north of Vansant Road.

Upon approaching the vehicle I noticed a young child in a car seat behind the driver seat. I also encountered the driver, a white female. Upon
initial contact with her I noticed her eyes were blood shot and glassy in appearance. I also detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked the female for her licenses. She proceeded to try to give me a Fulton County ID. I advised her I needed to see her licenses.

She told me that she was with the Fulton County DAs office and attempted to give me the ID again. I informed her that was not what I requested. She
continued to fumble through her purse, passing by her licenses on several occasions. Once again she removed her Fulton County 1D and tried to give it
to me. I advised her once more that I needed to see her drivers licenses. She finally produced her licenses. She was identified as Jennifer Moore.

I asked Mrs. Moore to step out her vehicle and to the rear. She opened the door and attempted to step out with the car still in drive. The car
rolled forward and I had to tell her to put the car in park. She just looked at me. She attempted to step out on two more occasions with the car in drive and it rolling forward. I finally had to reach in and put the car in park.

Mrs. Moore finally stepped out and to the rear of the vehicle. While at the rear of the vehicle I informed her why she was stopped. I asked her
where she was coming from. She advised from the package store where she got her friend some alcohol and was heading back home. Upon talking to her, I detected the same odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her person. I asked her if she had been drinking tonight. She advised yes. She advised that she had drunk a single Heinkien beer about an hour ago. I then asked her if she mind performing field sobriety. She advised that she did not mind. I advised her that each test would be explained and demonstrated to her before she began. She advised that she understood. Prior to her beginning I asked her if she had any physical or mental disabilities that would hinder her. She advised no. The following field sobriety was performed.

Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN). It was explained to her. She advised she under stood. Prior to her beginning I had her reach up with her right hand and remove her glasses. She attempted to put them in her pocket and dropped them. Prior to her beginning the test she advised me she had natural
nystagmus in her eyes. Her eyes showed equal tracking. She also displayed all six clues; lack of smooth pursuit, distinct nystagmus at maximum
deviation, and onset of nystagmus prior to forty-five degrees in both eyes.

Walk and turn: I instructed her to stand in front of me where my flash light was shining on the fog line facing me. She stepped in front of me with
her back toward me. I had to re instruct her on what I wanted her to do. I advised her we were going to use the fog line, which was plainly visible for the test. I asked her to stand on the line with her right foot in front her left touching heel to toe. I advised her to hold that position while I instructed her on the rest. She advised she under stood. She was also wearing house shoes. I asked her if she was comfortable in the shoes. She advised yes. While trying to explain the test to her she attempted to begin
the test prior to being told several times. It was explained and demonstrated. She advised she understood. She had the following results:
On the way down the line she never touched heel to toe, used her arms for balance, and took ten steps instead of nine. On the pivot she lost her
balance stumbling to the side and falling against her van. On the return she never touched heel to toe, used her arms for balance, and took ten steps
instead of nine like instructed.

One leg stand: I asked her prior to instructions if she was comfortable in the shoes she was wearing. She advised yes. I asked her if she was comfortable standing in the area she was standing. She advised yes. I then began to explain the test to her. While doing so she tried to begin during the instructions. I explained the test to her and asked if she understood. She advised yes. The following results followed: She stood on her left Łoot. She did not stick her foot straight out, but instead bent it at the knee behind her. She began counting at three and stopped at four.

She asked about her kid. She then began the test again. She once again did not stick her foot out straight, but bent it at the knee with it behind her. On three, five, seven, eight, twelve, thirteen, and fifteen she put her foot down. On seventeen she put her foot down and stopped. I then asked her if she would blow into the alka censor. It was explained to her this was not a state certified test, but only part of my
field sobriety. She advised yes. The alka censor registered a .12gms.

I advised Mrs. Moore to turn around and put her hands behind her back. Upon her doing so she lost her balance falling back into me. She was placed
under arrest and advised for DUI. Upon reading her implied consent from my orange DPS card for suspects age twenty-one or over, I had to catch Mrs. Moore when she stumbled backwards toward traffic. A breath sample was requested. She advised yes. She was placed in my car.

The child in the vehicle was identified as Elizabeth age two. Several phone calls were made attempting to get someone to come pick the child up. We were unable to do so. Ofc. Johnson took Elizabeth to Mrs. Moores grandmothers with her permission. The vehicle was impounded by Pendley
towing. Upon inventorying the vehicle I located an open bottle of Seagrams Gin and juice ruby red in the front passenger floorboard. The bottle was
three fourths empty. There was also a un open bottle of Smirnoff orange Vodka. The alcohol was left in the vehicle and it was impounded.

Mrs. Moore was transported to the police department. She was administered the breath test on the intox 5000. While attempting to stand
and blow into the intox Mrs. Moore fought to keep her balance. At one point she fell into me in an effort to keep her balance. The first sample
registered a .125gms. The second registered the same. She was charged with .125gms.
While in the book in area Mrs. Moore proceeded to urinate on her self. She also stood up several times and almost lost her balance. After she was given her results from the intox she requested her own test. She was
transported to Wellstar Douglas Hospital at her request for her test.

While in the emergency room waiting for her test, Mrs. Moore proceeded to remind me that she worked for Fulton County DA office. She at one point
threatened to have my job and tell me that I was going to lose the case because I did not know what I was doing. That she got hospital security attention. She began to cause such a scene
They stood by with me until Ofc. Pittman arrived at the hospital. She was administered the test of her choosing by hospital personal. She was given her results and discharged. Ofc. Pittman transported her back to the station where she was finished being booked in. She later bonded out.

I support Knight and NOTHING in this report indicates how she is today. Note the date, 2007!! I agree this was a bad situation, but it won't change my support for her. I see her every Sunday at church and I see how God has brought her through this. If it makes a difference in a person's life then God took a bad situation and turned it into a positive. You don't have to like her for this, but your missing out on knowing a great person!

Drivng drunk with her child in the car is unconscionable.

I am MYSTIFIED at the time and emotional capital all of these anonymous individuals have to invest in derailing Jennifer Knight's campaign for a draconian backwoods judge who loves to burn people. Even typing this I feel a little guilty and dirty for being on this ridiculous forum for cowards and bullies to use who come on here and bust their emotional nut before moving on to whatever child pornography or anonymous gay dating site they frequent.(Which, incidentally, I am not anti-gay. I am just anti-gay bashing republicans who solicit male prostitutes or harass young male pages). I digress.
I am sure if this were a white male tea-bagger, err, I meant partier, any mistakes made in the past would conveniently be just that, a mistake that is not relevant to the qualifications necessary to holding the office in question. But let a female with spirit and passion for doing the right thing try to stand up and make a difference, and all of a sudden isolated incidents made three years ago become major, character defining, earth shattering events.
There is a male with demonstrable pattern and practice of over the top sentences and disrespectful courtroom behavior who shows no contrition or desire to change. And on the other hand a female with ONE mistake on her record, a mistake MANY, MANY people have made, that somehow completely defines her as a person. Yeah, that makes sense.
It is not the isolated events that define your character, it is how you overcome them and acknowledge them and move past them that define it. It is not the isolated mistakes that define who you are, but the mistakes you arrogantly wake up and re-affirm and continue to make on a day to day basis that defines who you are.

Oh good grief, she fessed up to getting a DUI! Read the newspaper!!! She admits it, admits it was a huge mistake, but is grateful for lesson she learned! Let it go! Seriously, one thing, this one thing you have found and repeated and repeated over and over again on numerous posts, facebook, and who knows where else. Either find something else or let it go!!!
She has bigger berries than Emerson ever dreamed, but to his defense, if he owned up and apologized to all of them in the newspaper there wouldn't be any room left for anything else.
We get it, you can stop harping now, she endangered her child, Emerson has been, is, and will continue, if elected again, to endanger this same child, but also yours and mine and everyone else's too!!

Unfortunate. Fact is her attempt to leverage her position of authority with the DAs office to avoid prosecution reflects far worse on the character one would expect a judge to posess than the fact that she received a DUI. DUI- overlooked. DUI with child in car- bad news. DUI with child in car and thinking you are above the law becuase you work for the DAs office, unacceptable for a judicial candidate.

She was DRUNK!!!! You mean to tell me you've never known of a drunk person to get mouthy??? Lots of people get mouthy when they drink too much. Especially those that are hoping to get out of a bad situation. But even if you have never been exposed to an individual who drinks, Cops has been on the air long enough for us all to have seen atleast one mouthy drunk person. And again, she had the decency enough to own up to her actions, she can't be above the law and humble at the same time. But we do know someone that has yet to admit to a mistake....*insert theatrical "dum dum dum" here*

Look! I don't know either of the people running. My post came right after reading the police report. If your post is representative of the type of supporter she has, count me out. You give new meaning to disgusting. BTW, the very fact that you can read that report and be able to ignore the fact that her child was in the car indicates y may need more help than she does. jmo

I agree unacceptable, but is this how she is NOW? we are talking about an incident that occurred almost 4 YEARS AGO. A lot of things, good and bad, can happen in 4 years.

P.S. don't kid yourself if you think she is the only one that has ever done that. I guarantee you I have seen many a police officers drive home drunk and know they could flash their badge and get out of it. That mentality is not just hers, but many in the government world.

People on both sides of this campaign have taken this to the extreme. I personally don't think it looks bad on either Emerson or Knight. People are just people. Neither of them can realistically stop people from posting what they want. AND, Synergy you are no doubt entitled to your opinion. Nobody should take that from anybody!

We live and die by the decisions we make. Everyone doesn't get to be a judge. Those few who do should be beyond reproach. Having her child in the car at the time indicates horribly bad judgement and anyone on record for trying to work their position of importance in government to avoid prosecution does not now nor ever will deserve to be a judge of others. I don't know her. I don't know her opposition. I've made my decision solely on the merits of the situation. If I were her, I never would have run for a judgeship with that on record to begin with. Of course she is forgiven and yes I respect that she is a different person now. I'd rather my children get the message that you make tough decisions along the way to prepare yourself to enter politics or law rather than set the example that you can mess up and make bad decisions along the way and it won't have consequences because of who they are or who they know.

I'm not sure how much of the "she had her child in the while drunk" I believe, if it were true wouldn't she have had that child taken away? Many parents in this county have had their children taken away for less. But as a parent, I want my children to know how to really forgive, and that one mistake doesn't defy the rest of that person's life. Most of our presidents have admitted to doing drugs, our current one admitted to having a cocaine problem back in the day. The problem comes when they cannot profess their sins and be sorry.
I'm worried for all of our children the way things are going. Our current judge sentenced one 17 year old to 10 years for a consentual act with his 15 year old girlfriend, and another 30 year old got 2 years for unconsentual acts with 13/14 year olds. He also took a child from a mother, gave the child to the step-father who is the brother of the 30 year old convicted molester. How is this right? Health departments all over Georgia have signs up saying don't leave your child alone with it's step-father, more kids get abused by step-fathers than anyone else. But our judge court orders this to happen. So remorseful DUI or child molester supporter for our children?

lol, if your looking to start another useless rumor then you lose, but if you were looking for a laugh then you win!! It's funny, the bluntness of it, but we all know that sex scandles surface first. It's good though, it's good, don't get me wrong, I laughed. Thank you too, I'm a strong believer that if you can make someone laugh, you've made their day. You just made mine.

Drunk with a kid

AND an open bottle of booze

AND she couldn't get the car park

AND she went to the bathroom on herself

AND she gave the officer her DA identification several times

AND she caused a scene at the hospital

AND she threatened to have the police officers job

Lordy I am so glad for Internet mobility!

Again, if she really had her child in the car with her, why was the child not taken from her?? If it is true she would not have her child today, she would have found herself in front of Emerson, the child would not have returned to her care.
Minds are made up, that we can count on, I just can't understand why this one subject is being harped on, yet ignoring the fact that Emerson gave 1 KID 10 years for statatory rape with a 15 year old, and 1 30 year old MAN 2 years for multiple counts of unconsentual statatory rape with girls who were 13 and 14 years old.
It's because not all of the story with knight is true, lies are being wrapped up with the truth, but with Emerson, it is true, and ignoring it is going to allow this judge to hurt more of our children. Locking up teens for having sex, but letting a molester (as his SO registry file says) back out there to do what he enjoys.
This is why our county hasn't made the records completely public, we still have to go to the court house to view them, he wants to keep his corruption behind doors.
