21-year-old Cody Leonard got into an argument downtown when someone called his brother a derogatory term. Police got everyone to calm down and agree to go their separate ways, except Cody. Cody stated: “The only way I’m leaving is if you take me to jail”. Officers obliged, and booked him on a charge of public intoxication.
|ARREST WARRANT / AFFIDAVIT:|
|The subject was involved in an argument with passersby over a derogatory term used toward his brother. Once PD was on scene all parties called down and were willing to leave except the suspect. The suspect stated the only way he was leaving was by going to jail. The subject refused all efforts by police and family to get him to a safe place, but due to his level of intoxication (staggering, slurred speech) and anger, he was a danger to himself and others.|
