A Denison man was arrested on a charge of public intoxication last Friday after he walked into the city’s police station and claimed he had warrants for his arrest, but officers found none issued against him.
Lt. Mike Eppler said the 57-year-old man walked into the police station shortly after 6 a.m., fully prepared to turn himself in.
“He comes into the lobby, saying that officers were out arresting people at his house all night and he figured he would do the right thing,” Eppler said. “He was obviously intoxicated and there were no warrants on him.”
Eppler said the man did not specify what warrants he believed were filed against him, but Denison Police had not visited the man’s residence, as he claimed.
“It’s not something that you see all the time,” Eppler said of the incident.
