MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis police arrested a woman on Monday who they say fired shots out of an open car window while half-naked to celebrate her birthday.

The affidavit reads that the gun was discharged “on the main roadway through Downtown that is well populated with businesses and residential housing.”.

After backup was called, officers arrested 23-year-old Keirra Welch and located a Glock 17 on the car’s passenger side floorboard.

Police also found a clear plastic bag containing what appeared to be marijuana on the ground next to the passenger side door.

Welch told police “the weed belonged to her” and said “she was just turning up for her birthday.”.

She told officers that she drank at least four alcoholic beverages and according to police “was clearly intoxicated.”.

Welch was charged with possession of a handgun while intoxicated, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, and possession of marijuana. »
