Complaints of suspicious activity and loud noise resulted in two Sulphur Springs residents being arrested Friday in separate incidents by police for public intoxication Friday.
Sulphur Springs police responded just before 4 a.m. Friday, July 12, to a complaint of loud noise heard in the 1200 block of North Jackson Street. Officers reported the 51-year-old resident had been warned previously to keep the noise down and to stay inside her apartment due to her level of suspected intoxication.
The Sulphur Springs woman was later reportedly seen exiting the apartment into the public area near a staircase. Police located the woman and, believing her to be heavily intoxicated and, thus, a danger to herself and others, took her into custody for PI, according to arrest reports.
Another officer at 11:53 a.m. Friday, July 12, responded to what was reported as suspicious activity in Pacific Park. Upon arrival, the policeman reported finding a 50-year-old Sulphur Springs man face down in the park.
The officer contacted the man, who he alleged in arrest reports spoke with slurred speech. A pat down also reportedly revealed an empty medication bottle. The Sulphur Springs man showed had several clues of intoxication during horizontal gaze nystagmus tests and was arrested for PI, police alleged in arrest reports.
