Loud mouth
9:25 a.m. — First Street and Lemon Avenue.
Disorderly Conduct. Police were called to the scene because a main was walking downtown yelling at the top of his lungs. The officer arrived and saw the man screaming, but at nobody in particular. The man said he was angry because “they” told him he couldn’t go to a homeless shelter. The officer asked him who “they” were, and the man said he didn’t know. Then the officer asked him if he had spoken to anyone at the homeless shelter, and the man said he didn’t. So the officer told him to go to the shelter and ask if could get in, and the man did.
