A woman was arrested after challenging a police officer who called a tow truck after her car was found parked in the middle of the road.

Alexis Perchoux, 30, of Clermont, was driving a tan Chevrolet sedan in the Skyline Hills neighborhood around 9 a.m. Monday when an officer noticed Perchoux was not wearing a seatbelt, according to a Lady Lake police report. She parked the car in the middle of the roadway at the end of Ray Street. She and a male companion walked away from the vehicle.

An officer called Kling Towing, the city’s towing service, to have the car towed. Perchoux returned and asked why her vehicle was towed. She was “uncooperative.”

During a search of the vehicle, the officer found methamphetamine, Xanax, and drug paraphernalia. The officer also determined that Perchoux was driving with a suspended license. She resisted arrest.

After being placed in the back of a patrol car, she claimed she became unconscious due to the heat. She was taken to UF Health-Leesburg Health for a medical evaluation. When she arrived at the hospital, she told medical personnel she was not in any discomfort and did not need to be examined.

She was arrested on multiple drug charges, driving without a license and resisting arrest. She is already on probation and was booked into the Lake County Jail without bail.
