31-year-old Dustin Earls inappropriately grabbed Logan Steinbarge, a first responder, in the early hours of March 16th. Steinbarge alerted the authorities, and advised them that she was dispatched to the women’s mission due to a man lying on the ground in the alleyway. Then, Steinbarge stated that they loaded the man, identified as Dustin Earls, in the back of the ambulance once they located him. Earls was uncooperative, refusing to give first responders any of his information. After this, Earls grabbed the inside of Steinbarge’s thigh, which EMS personnel confronted him about. Earls then became irate and began attempting to punch them. Earls admitted to first responders that he had been drinking and showed signs of impairment. Earls was deemed unable to care for himself and then was taken into custody for assaulting a first responder and public intoxication.
