49-year-old Alan Churchman caused a disturbance and refused to leave Rippy’s Honky Tonk around 10:50 p.m. on May 4th. Security for the establishment flagged officers down, advising them that Churchman was belligerent to other bar patrons. Officers observed him yelling and swearing at Rippy’s staff when they arrived. Officers then tried to speak with him, and he initially was shouting at them, getting extremely close to them. Churchman then admitted to officers that he was “wasted” and “very intoxicated” from alcohol consumption. Officers attempted to place him in a taxi to get him home, which he cooperated with until he started being aggressive and exited the cab. Churchman continued to be hostile toward officers after exiting the taxi. Churchman was taken into custody for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.
