Cornelia woman on probation for making explosives arrested over the weekend

By B.J. Williams News Director
FLOWERY BRANCH - The Cornelia woman who entered a guilty plea in federal court last year to making pipe bombs is in trouble with the law again - this time in Flowery Branch.<br /> <br /> Celia Alchemy Savage, 25, was arrested Saturday night after she allegedly caused a disturbance at a tattoo studio on McEver Road. She fled the scene, but was caught a short time later and faces a long list of charges, according to Flowery Branch Police Chief David Spillers.<br /> <br /> "Driving under the influence, criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct, possession of methamphetamine, possession of alprazolam - which is a Schedule 4 drug - with intent to distribute, possession of synthetic marijuana and crossing a guard line," said Spillers.<br /> <br /> Spillers said Savage was arrested on McEver Road near Friendship Road after officers received a report that Savage had destroyed some furniture at Mind's Eye Tattoo Studio just before 9 p.m. Saturday. Witnesses also told officers Savage appeared to be intoxicated when she left the tattoo studio.<br /> <br /> Spillers said it is likely Savage's probation will be revoked as a result of the arrest.<br />
