A man drove into the back parking lot of the substation and advised he had an intoxicated male patron from a local establishment in his vehicle. He said he tried to drive the man home, but he became agitated and changed his mind about being taken home, so the man drove him to the substation instead.
Deputies spoke with the intoxicated man and attempted to get his address so he could be driven home, but each time provided different street numbers for his home. Eventually he became angry and would not give deputies an address.
Deputies attempted to find his address, though each one that came up, the man said it was not his address. He was being so loud that patrons were coming out of a nearby establishment to see what was going on. He also refused a preliminary breath test. He was extremely agitated with deputies and kept turning to face them as if he was going to assault them. He was handcuffed and put in the patrol car and taken for medical clearance.
