On June 6th, Officer Hickson received a call regarding an inebriated person knocking on people’s doors close to the intersection of Sports and Nonaville Rd. Upon arrival, Hickson made contact with the person on Nonaville Rd. The man who identified himself as Michael Baker, was unstable on his feet, had small pupils, and seemingly was under the influence of an illegal substance, per report.
Hickson asked Baker where he lived, to which Baker gave an address. When the two arrived at the address, an elderly man answered the door and claimed that Baker was not welcome in the residence due to stealing the man’s belonging and using heroin. Hickson proceeded to place Baker into custody for public intoxication for his own safety and that of the public.
