Police arrested 35-year-old Joseph Agan on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

According to a probable cause affidavit, at 6:14 p.m. officers found Agan “highly intoxicated” and verbally instigating a fight with another male.

Officers told Agan to leave the property and was provided a written warning on disorderly conduct and was released to the custody of his father.

When officers neared Fifth and Railroad streets they found Agan waking north without any shoes on and his shirt inside out and backwards.

He was yelling at people who were outside on their porch. Agan was stopped and given a portable breath test. His blood-alcohol level was at 0.201. He was arrested.

Agan continued to yell and make “incoherent chatter” and curse at officers. He continued to be belligerent at the jail and was placed in a padded cell.
