First Recorded Use Of “Tripping Balls” In Police Report Is Seen In Arkansas Document;
Arkansas cops reported that a woman was “tripping balls” when they arrested her last week as she ran naked through a parking lot.
A report detailing the bust of Melissa Valencia, 21, may be the first time the phrase “tripping balls” has been memorialized in an official police document, according to us.
Responding to a 911 call about a naked woman running down the street, Fayetteville cops confronted Valencia as she appeared to be attempting to hide behind a pole. The individual who called cops noted that the suspect was “intoxicated on drugs and ‘tripping balls.’”
Seen in the above mug shot, Valencia struggled with officers as they sought to corral her. After “thrashing her arms about,” Valencia was handcuffed, placed in two sets of leg restraints, and transported for “treatment for a possible drug overdose.” In a subsequent conversation with a nurse, Valencia “admitted to taking acid at her boyfriend’s house.”
Valencia was “calm, polite, and cooperative” when transported to jail for booking on misdemeanor public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest charges (for which she will be arraigned on August 1).
