A drunken Danielsville man who said he was walking to jail to turn himself in, was arrested before he could get there after he fell while walking in the road on Hwy. 98 near the Madison County Library.
Christopher Arlington Scott, 50, 600 Horace Reed Road, was charged with pedestrian under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
According to the incident report, officer Brandon Moss arrived to assist EMS and two other officers who were already on scene. Moss noted that Scott appeared to be “noticeably intoxicated.”
When Moss asked him what happened he reportedly said he was “walking to jail to turn himself in” and that he had consumed three 24-ounce beers. After refusing treatment by EMS at the scene, he was handcuffed and transported the short distance to jail.
In another incident, another Danielsville man was arrested after an officer was dispatched to an “affray” on Cliff Griffeth Road.
One of the alleged combatants, John Edward Green, 46, of 155 Sherwood Circle, was found to have an outstanding warrant for theft by taking. According to the incident report, officer Justin Hanley went to the scene where a man told him he and Green were going down the road when they got into an argument. He said that both had been drinking. The argument escalated and Green allegedly told him he would “whoop his $%%.” The man said he told Green there was “nothing there but air and opportunity.” They then pulled over to the side of Cliff Griffith Road and began to fight. After they got back to the residence, Green took off walking. Hanley found him walking on Colbert Grove Church Road at the church and arrested him on the outstanding warrant.
