The officer found a bottle of half-full vodka, which was emptied in the presence of another officer and submitted into Norman property custody as evidence.
The minor later returned to the scene to speak with the officer after a friend of the minor contacted him. When the officer saw the minor, he observed the minor exhibiting poor balance, thick speech and a tendency to draw out the ends of certain words. He was incapable of walking in a straight line and fell to the ground multiple times, the affidavit said.
When the officer asked the minor if he was drunk, the minor said “yes.” The minor said he consumed vodka and lemon gin inside the residence, which Rayford had given him, the affidavit said.
The minor’s mother requested Norman fire and EMSStat to check the welfare of her son, due to his high level of intoxication. The minor was not transported to the hospital for treatment, the document said.
The minor told the officer that at no time while consuming alcohol inside the residence did Rayford, Shinabery or Dunaway attempt to stop or prevent him from consuming or receiving the alcohol he consumed, the affidavit said.
Other individuals who approached the officer that day said they had been approached by Rayford and Shinabery in the past during which they offered alcohol and marijuana, the affidavit said. The majority of the individuals were between the ages of 13 to 15, the officer noted.
The officer also noted in the affidavit, based on a prior call for service that he was familiar with the residents from prior contact. On June 20, he responded to a call that stated Shinabery and Rayford provided a juvenile marijuana and allowed the juvenile to consume it in their residence, the affidavit said.
While no arrest was made at that time due to inconclusive evidence, Shinabery claimed possession of a metal grinder and metal pipe containing black residue possessing the odor of burnt marijuana found upon search of the residence.
A municipal docket for possession of paraphernalia was issued for Shinabery for that incident.
