A woman traveling to the Upstate with her 5-year-old son for Thanksgiving was arrested Thursday after deputies said they found her passed out in her car.
Spartanburg County deputies were called to the intersection of Dale Drive and Rogers Bridge Road in Duncan about 3 p.m. after someone reported seeing a woman passed out in her car with a small child inside.
Deputies said the woman, 28-year-old Tanya Sypher, of Norwich, CT, was acting aggressive and erratic and appeared to be under the influence of drugs when they tried talking to her.
Sypher was aggressive toward the witness and deputies, spitting on one of them, then tried kicking out the glass window in the patrol car, deputies said.
Deputies arrested Sypher on public disorderly conduct and her son was placed with a family member in Simpsonville, where they said she was traveling to for Thanksgiving.
