A complaint of a man taking his clothes off at a truck stop resulted in an arrest, according to police reports.
A Sulphur Springs Police officer responded Wednesday morning to a complaint of a man taking his clothes off near the front entrance to a Hillcrest Drive truck stop. Upon arrival, the man had walked to the truck stop across the street. Police located the suspect in the restaurant side of the business.
Police recognized the 21-year-old Sulphur Springs man as someone who earlier in the week had been issued a criminal trespass warning, prohibiting him from returning to the property. When asked, he indicated he did recall being issued the warning. He claimed he wanted to give his jacket to one of the employees as an offering, the officer alleged in arrest reports. The man was reported to be clothed in the store sans the aforementioned jacket.
After confirming the warning was active for the location, the policeman arrested the 21-year-old on a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge. He was released later Wednesday, Feb. 10, on a $5,000 bond, according to jail reports.
