Gurley, 20, who is on probation for a 2008 reckless-driving case in Cobb, is free on a $5,000 bond.
Robert Beckelic, 19, of Acworth remains in Cobb County Jail on charges of underage possession of alcohol and obstruction after he was arrested at Gurley’s apartment, Cobb Police said. Seven other minors were cited for minor in possession there as well, according to Cobb Police.
Shortly after midnight on March 18, St. Patrick’s Day officially passed, police responded to a noise complaint at the Milstead Village Apartments on Busbee Parkway near Chastain and were about to leave after finding nothing amiss, according to the warrant for Gurley.
But just before they got in their vehicle, someone opened a window in apartment 805 and punched out the screen. The officers then went to the door of the apartment, where Gurley answered and acknowledged she had been drinking, according to her warrant.
She let the officers in, where she was hosting “a large party with numerous underage persons consuming alcohol in excess” — but Gurley then disappeared, the warrant notes. They tried calling her cell phone, but got no answer. Then Officer A. Singleton opened the small pantry door in the kitchen and found her hiding there, according to the warrant.
“The accused stated that she heard our warning and chose not to come out of the closet,” the warrant states. Elsewhere in the apartment, the police found two people vomiting.
Gurley then offered to pay Officer J. Galloway $500 “not to take her to jail,” according to the warrant.
She now faces a felony charge of bribery, in addition to misdemeanor charges of minor in possession of alcohol, obstruction of justice, and maintaining a disorderly house.
Gurley is already on probation in Cobb for a reckless driving charge from 2008, according to Cobb State Court records. And in 2007, she completed the diversion program for first-offenders after being cited for minor in possession.
