LEESBURG, Florida — A Clermont woman who urinated on the side of the road after an argument with her boyfriend offered a Lake County Sheriff’s deputy oral sex for her Juul on the way to the Lake County Jail last month, according to an arrest affidavit.
Madison Ann Bryant, 19, was only facing a charge of disorderly intoxication, but added a felony bribery charge after making the offer to the deputy — who did not reply to her offer. Shortly after 2:15 a.m. Aug. 30, the LCSO deputy was patrolling U.S. Highway 27 near Hidden Harbor Drive in Leesburg, when he saw a Chevrolet pickup stopped in the inside lane and Bryant sitting in the median with her belongings, according to the report.
As the deputy pulled up, Bryant’s boyfriend, Tyler Thomas Sanville, 22, approached him and said he and Bryant were at a party in Leesburg, left and had been arguing. Bryant became angry and asked to get out of the truck and Sanville pulled over to let her out, he told the deputy. Sanville smelled of alcohol and was arrested for DUI by Leesburg Police Department and later released from the Lake County Jail on $1,000 bond.
LCSO stayed on scene with Bryant while she waited for a ride and she said she needed to use the bathroom. According to the report, a deputy offered to take her to a gas station and Bryant refused and stated she was going to urinate “right now,” the affidavit states; she was told not to several times by deputies.
Bryant dropped her pants and urinated directly in front of a patrol car, holding onto the push bar as traffic drove by. Bryant was taken into custody and the arresting deputy began transporting Bryant to jail. On the trip to the jail, Bryant consistently asked the deputy for her “Juul,” a smoking device she uses for anxiety. The deputy refused and Bryant asked if he was married, according to the affidavit. The deputy answered her and Bryant is alleged to have said she was not trying to “[expletive] that up” and she would “[sex act] if I gave her the jewel (sic,)” the affidavit states.
Bryant was charged with bribery of a public servant and disorderly intoxication. She was released on $3,000 bond.
