63-year-old James Tweed Jr. tried to enter a random apartment at the Division Street apartments on January 31st. Officers spoke with the residents, who advised that they received an alert regarding a white male, later identified as Tweed Jr. wearing an orange hat and a red hoodie, pulling on the front door handle attempting to get in. When officers arrived, they did not locate him but were provided with a picture, which helped them find Tweed Jr. a few blocks away from the apartments. They conducted a Terry stop on him to get his information and realized he was visibly intoxicated. They asked if he had consumed any alcohol, to which he admitted to drinking two beers and stated he did not know why he was in the building when asked about the incident. Tweed Jr. was deemed a danger to himself and others due to his level of intoxication, so he was taken into custody for public intoxication.
