31-year-old Jacob Garza was running and yelling in the middle of the road near President Ronald Reagan Way late on March 6th. When officers arrived, a passerby flagged them down, stating that an intoxicated male, later identified as Garza, nearly ran into his vehicle on Rutledge Street. Garza was screaming and refusing to move for traffic when officers located him. Garza showed multiple signs of impairment and was deemed a danger to himself. Officers attempted to detain Garza, during which he resisted, pulling away from them and had to be taken to the ground. After a brief struggle, Garza was taken into custody for refusing to disperse, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
