Officers then met with the manager of the Circle K, and he pulled up a video where Vaughn walked into the store with keys in her hand. Other employees at the Circle K informed officers that they believed Vaughn was under the influence of drugs. Officers asked Vaugn to perform sobriety tests, but she refused, so she was taken into custody. While placing her in the vehicle, Vaughn refused to listen to commands and stiffened her body with officers.

Vaughn was previously arrested on April 21st for an incident where she pointed a gun at a woman during an argument. Vaughn was charged with evidence tampering, assault against first responder, DUI, resisting arrest, and open container law on April 29th.
