(BEDFORD) – A Bedford man was arrested after Bedford Police officers were called to the Circle K gas station at 16th and O streets early this morning.
Officers were told a man was asleep inside the store.
When officers arrived they found 41-year-old Rhett Lewis sleeping on the floor in one of the aisles.
“He showed the usual signs of being intoxicated, so officers contacted a family member to pick him up,” says Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore. “The family member told officers they could not pick him up.”
Officers woke Lewis and he became combative with them.
Because of Lewis’ level of intoxication, he was transported to a local hospital for a medical evaluation and once cleared he was transported to jail on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest.
