CHURCH HILL — A woman who was denied a beer purchase two days before her 21st birthday Tuesday night was arrested after allegedly leaving the store at a high rate of speed and hitting a street sign while being chased by police.

Shortly before midnight Tuesday, Church Hill Police Department Officer Dustin Dean was walking toward the entrance of the Food City store on Highway 11-W when he observed two women arguing with the manager.

Dean wrote in his report that the females were standing next to a red Dodge truck in the parking lot.

Dean said, “I asked the manager if everything was OK, and he stated ‘No, I was refusing to sell them beer and they tried to go out the self check-out and buy it anyway.’”
