Minister Chris Woods was seating in his living room eating dinner with his family when he spotted someone walking around on his porch about 8:50 p.m. on Friday.
Woods initially thought it was his father-in-law. Then after looking again he realized it was a stranger. Cops later identified the stranger as Brandon Dale Rackley, 34, of Chickamauga.
Woods began talking with the stranger.
“Rackley asked him if Mr. Woods would be his friend and if he drank beer. Mr. Woods rejected his offer and told Mr. Rackley that he was a preacher,” Deputy Alan Garmany reported. ” Mr.
Rackley replied back with he was in the wrong place and got into the driver seat and crank the truck. Mr. Woods advised that was when he had his wife call 911 and he went out to stop Mr. Rackley from driving off and took his keys from him until officers arrived.”
Cops arrived and noticed Rackley was intoxicated. They administered a portable Alco Sensor breath test and Rackley alcohol concentration showed him to be impaired (.237 on the Alco Sensor).
Rackley was arrested for disorderly conduct, according to reports.
