Occurred Wednesday, August 29, 2012, 1:56am, 4653 Everhart Road, Public Intoxication
A 21-year-old man was arrested for public intoxication when he refused to leave a night club and then he fought with police officers.
Two Corpus Christi Police Officers refused to allow 21-year-old Anthony Parker to enter a night club near closing time because the officers recognized Parker was intoxicated. Parker yelled at the officers and argued that the officers have no authority to tell him he was drunk. Parker then took an aggressive stance and balled his fists which prompted the officers to decide Parker must be arrested for public intoxication to prevent any injury to anyone.
The officers told Parker he was under arrest and attempted to place Parkers hands behind his back to apply handcuffs. Parker struggled with officers until Parker was exposed to the Taser electronic control device.
Parker then complied with officers instructions and was taken to the city detention center.
