21-year-old Eric Batson was found passed out and slumped over on the sideway near the pedestrian bridge on 2nd Ave South late March 8th. Officers made initial contact with Batson and alerted nearby paramedics. Batson eventually became conscious and was able to answer basic questions. However, Batson was still unable to convey where he was from or where he was staying. Batson first said he was staying at the Hilton but later stated the Holiday Inn. Batson also wasn’t sure of the location of either hotel. Batson was unable to locate his cell phone or anyone to retrieve him, so he was taken into custody and charged with public intoxication.
