Tina Marie Arie was hanging out at a Whataburger in Porter, Texas on Monday, watching while one male friend tried to revive another friend by slapping him around. Then the cops arrived. Then it got weird.
A Montgomery County Constable was called to a Whataburger restaurant yesterday to deal with the unusual threesome. An ambulance was called to carry the unconscious man to a hospital and officers arrested the 44-year-old Arie and 30-year-old Howard Keith Windam, both of whom were found trying to hide hydrocodone and soma pills, and put them in the back of the same squad car.
The Constable driving them to jail noticed the two were acting strangely and he could no longer see Arie's face. He asked where she was and she offered that she was exhausted (or high) and was resting on Windham's lap.
As someone who grew up in Montgomery County I can tell you this is an old trick and the Constable wasn't to be fooled. He quickly pulled over the car and dealt with it. According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter:
"He could see that despite both parties being handcuffed behind their backs, Windham's pants were unfastened and Arie was servicing his exposed genitalia. The deputy ordered them to cease the sexual contact and then continued driving to the jail."
Behind the back? I'm equal parts disgusted and impressed.
Don't worry, this story has a happy ending. No addition charges were filed against either Arie or Windham.
