Nick Schneider, of the Greene County Daily World, reports that Debra Ann Ceol-Stephens, who lives on SW 2nd St., was arrested by Linton Police Department Officer Michael Watts at the Save-A-Lot store parking lot, located at 209 South Main St. in Linton, at about 7:02 p.m. She was initially charged with neglect of a dependent - a class D felony; and public intoxication - a class B misdemeanor.
Police received a report from a female about an intoxicated woman at the store, who had some small children with her.
