Woman Hyperventilates When Trooper Finds Drugs During Stop

A 45-year-old Tulsa woman faces several drug-related charges in Sequoyah County District Court, Sallisaw.

Diane Inez Long was charged Aug. 14 with unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute and two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and one misdemeanor count of possession of paraphernalia.

According to the deputy’s report filed with the charges, he saw Long on Aug. 11 driving erratically on State Highway 10A. He stopped her and had her get out of her vehicle. He reported Long then began to hyperventilate, and she was transported to the hospital in Sallisaw. She was later released and booked into the Sequoyah County Jail.

The deputy reported a search of Long’s vehicle uncovered over 6 grams of a substance that tested positive as methamphetamine. He also reported he recovered pills identified as a class 4 narcotic, marijuana and paraphernalia.

Long was found to have a suspended driver’s license and is wanted on a warrant out of Okmulgee County.

Long pleaded innocent of the charges on Aug. 15 and her bond was set a $10,000. Her next court appearance is set for Aug. 29 on the disposition docket.
