Liberty Lake officer helps intoxicated woman on roof

Sat., May 10, 2014

A Liberty Lake police officer ventured on to the roof of a home recently to bring an intoxicated woman back inside.

Police were called to the 20000 block of East Meyers Avenue on May 4 by the woman’s husband, who said the couple had been through some rough times lately and his wife had been drinking. By the time the officer arrived the woman had made her way onto the roof, said Police Chief Brian Asmus.

The officer climbed out a window and followed her. “It was pretty steep, according to the officer,” Asmus said. “She didn’t fight or anything. She just came back in.”

The woman was taken to a local hospital to be treated.
