Fight call ends with public intoxication arrest

Denton police were dispatched to a fight call Sunday morning in the 800 block of West Eagle Drive but ended up arresting a man on a public intoxication charge, according to police reports.

Officers said two men who were seen fighting admitted they were fighting but said they didn’t want to press charges. While they were at the scene, a woman told officers all four of her vehicle’s tires were slashed, but officers did not see where the tires were punctured, police said.

Officers did find a man sitting in the driver’s seat of a vehicle who looked to be intoxicated, police said. Officers talked with him and said he smelled like alcohol. They determined the man was going to try to drive away, so the officers arrested him and charged him with public intoxication.

Nobody was arrested for fighting in this case, police spokeswoman Allison Vetere said.
