January 2, 2004 -- A 21-year-old Helm Lane resident and the 35-year-old neighbor who reported her for being too loud were both arrested for public intoxication late Saturday night. The man was also charged with resisting arrest after he refused to follow police orders to keep his mouth shut and go back inside his apartment and resisted efforts to place him in custody.
The woman was alleged to have become involved in an argument with her neighbor and other residents at 11:45 p.m., continually getting louder and progressively more disorderly, according to reports.
She smelled very strongly of an alcoholic beverage, had slurred speech and was very unsteady on her feet when arrested in the common area at the apartment complex, reports stated.
Her downstairs neighbor continued arguing with the woman, becoming very loud and disorderly even after officers asked him to be quiet and go inside his apartment. He too smelled very strongly of an alcoholic beverage, had slurred speech and very bloodshot eyes.
When officers told him he was under arrest for public intoxication, he told the officer that he was not going to jail and tried pulling away from the officer.
