July 27, 2007 - A Campbell woman and two male family members were arrested Thursday afternoon after a disturbance involving alcohol and disorderly behavior at a city park.

Sulphur Springs police, assisted by sheriff's deputies, were dispatched at 1:37 p.m. Thursday to a disturbance at Imagination Mountain in Coleman Park where three to four individuals were reported to be drinking and using abusive language. Officers quickly located the 43-year-old woman and two men, ages 25 and 23, who appeared to be at the center of the disturbance.

Arrest reports indicated the older man was drinking alcohol, and he began using abusive language and became combative as they approached him. He was instructed to cease the language but didn't, reports state, resulting in his arrest for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

The 23-year-old was also using profanity in a loud voice, which others in the area said offended them. After hearing him use the "offensive" language when they arrived, police arrested him for disorderly conduct.

Officers detected alcohol on the woman's breath, and she was unsteady on her feet. She was taken into custody for public intoxication after she acknowledged she'd been drinking.

�She was uncooperative with officers, according to reports, and began shouting obscenities. When officers went to arrest one of the men, who is her son, she grabbed his arm and held on. Another officer had to pry her arms off her son. That led to charges of disorderly conduct and hindering apprehension.

Officers also reported that the 25-year-old man continued to be disorderly after being placed in a patrol car and damaged the rear window, resulting in an additional charge of criminal mischief.
