22-year-old Ortega Miranda was seen publicly intoxicated at a Taco Bell near Hickory Hollow Lane on June 15th. When officers arrived on the scene, they noticed Miranda frantically wiping down the countertop and soda machine inside the business. Officers then asked Miranda to leave and noted his unsteadiness on his feet. While officers questioned Miranda, he was unable to speak in clear sentences. Officers then spoke with Taco Bell staff, who told them that he had been dancing in the store before he started banging on the soda machine. The employees also told officers that Miranda was scaring customers inside the business, so they called the police. While Miranda was on the sidewalk, he could not sit still and began rocking back and forth constantly. Miranda then laid on his back, and started rubbing his face. When asked about his intoxication level, Miranda admitted to officers that he had used Fentanyl the prior night. Officers received a similar call from a McDonald’s on the same road, verifying it was the same person on both properties. Officers deemed Miranda to be a danger to himself, so he was taken into custody for public intoxication.
