A Howell resident faces extradition to Ohio after she was found in a disabled car early Thursday morning.
Detective Sgt. Eileen Dodd of the Howell Police Department reported that a 2008 Jeep driven by Jayne Martin, 19, of Jackson was found in the parking lot of the abandoned gas station near the intersection of Route 9 and Strickland Road at around 1:19 in the morning. Martin was attempting to turn around but got stuck in the dirt, she told police.
Also in the car was 18-year-old Angelina Failla of Mariner’'s Cove who Dodd said was difficult to awaken. Officers at the scene reported Failla appeared to be under the influence and Martin confirmed she had been drinking.
Failla was taken to CentraState Medical Center for treatment. A records search showed that she has a warrant out of Howell for $500 for failing to appear and a warrant out of Freehold for $1,150 for failing to appear as well.
Dodd said Failla also has a no bail warrant from the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department in Cincinnati.
Patrolman Ryan Hurley remained with Failla during her time at the hospital and Patrolman Jaime Higgins transported her from the hospital to the Monmouth County Correctional Institution.
Failla was disorderly during the transport and kicked the door frame, window, cage and roof of the patrol car, Dodd said. The patrol car's door frame sustained significant damage and Failla she was charged with criminal mischief as a result.
She will be extradited to Ohio and was also charged with being a fugitive from justice with ball set at $50,000 with no 10 percent option.
