A complaint regarding a Jefferson Street disturbance Monday night resulted in a 42-year-old Sulphur Springs man’s arrest for being intoxicated in public, according to police reports.

Sulphur Springs police were dispatched at 10:45 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25, to the 900 block of Jefferson Street, in response to a 911 call. Upon arrival at the location, the homeowner told police the man had entered the residence without permission, causing a disturbance, police alleged in arrest reports.

Officials reported, upon contact with the man, they found him to be “intoxicated to the point he was danger to himself and others, resulting in his arrest for public intoxication.

The man was released from the county jail on the charge Tuesday morning, Nov. 26, according to jail reports.


The 42-year-old Sulphur Springs man was the second police arrested Monday for PI. A 63-year-old Sulphur Springs man was reportedly arrested in an unrelated incident Monday morning for being intoxicated at a Church Street business.

Police were dispatched at 10:32 a.m. Nov. 25 to a report of the man possibly intoxicated at the pharmacy. Upon arrival, police reportedly contacted the man. He was alleged to have glassy, red bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and an alcohol odor emitted from his breath. When asked to stand up, the man appeared to the officer to be unsteady on his feet, police alleged in arrest reports.

The 63-year-old was jailed Nov. 25 for public intoxication, and released from jail Tuesday morning, Nov. 26, according to arrest and jail reports.

Monday marked the third time this month and fourth time this year the 63-year-old man has been jailed locally on alcohol related charges. He was also arrested Aug. 28 and Nov. 23 for public intoxication; and Nov. 5 on an open container warrant, according to jail reports.
