A 50-year-old Kinnelon woman fell more than 15 feet, initially from a bathroom window, in Bloomingdale Wednesday and was found naked and bleeding from the face, arms and legs around 9:45 a.m.
The woman, Teresa Blair, was transported to Morristown Medical Center by Tri-Boro First Aid Squad after officers "responded to a report of a bloody, naked female," according to Ptl. Dan Fletcher. She was found by police on the ground outside an apartment near Quick Chek on Hamburg Turnpike, Fletcher said. In the bathroom from which Blair initially fell, Fletcher said officers found a bottle of prescription medication and a bottle of vodka.
"Although Blair was conscious, she was incoherent and would only yell at the officers," Fletcher said.
Blair was arrested previously by Bloomingdale police after Fletcher said in November she struck a car in the Quick Chek parking lot then drove intoxicated to the Riverside Square Plaza where she was found unconscious behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang. In that instance, Fletcher said Blair showed signs of alcohol and prescription drug use.
On Wednesday, Fletcher said Blair refused to let officers cover her body and "officers were forced to confine Blair for the safety of all officers and additional responding personnel."
Fletcher said Blair had been staying at the apartment at the time and investigation revealed she first fell from the bathroom window to a roof just outside the window before eventually falling the 15 feet to the ground.
