Denton police said Monday that while officers were booking a 22-year-old man into the Denton City Jail on Sunday night, a baggie of what turned out to be ecstasy fell onto the ground. Police said the man admitted it was his.

His interaction with police on Sunday began with a domestic disturbance call at a convenience store in the 4000 block of Teasley Lane. Someone called the police to say a man entered the store to say a group of people were trying to beat him up, according to a police report.

Officers arrived and, after interviewing people on scene, determined nobody was trying to hurt the man. Officers learned the man had two warrants for his arrest. They arrested him and drove him to the jail, police said.

There, as he was exiting a police vehicle, the baggie fell to the ground, police said. He was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance and was still housed at the jail Monday evening.
