A Winterville man was arrested recently after someone called 9-1-1 about an intoxicated man at Ingles.
According to a report from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, officer Chad Parr went to the scene where he met with a man, who was standing next to the entrance of Ingles talking with two people. Parr had the man walk over to his car, where he noticed he was unsteady on his feet and that his speech was slurred. The man had outstanding felony warrants out of Madison and Clarke County and was a convicted felon. A loaded pistol was found in his pocket. At the jail, officers found two glass pipes in the bib of his overalls with cocaine residue on them.
In a second incident, a Comer man was arrested after he allegedly threw things at a couple of cars while standing on the roadside.
