CS Police Say Alcohol and Drugs Contributes to Four Friday Night ArrestsFeatured Stories, News Monday, November 4th, 2013
Four alcohol-related arrests Friday night in College Station followed two crashes, a disturbance in a Northgate bar involving a handgun, and an unscheduled performer at the Consolidated High School football game halftime show.
A taxicab driver spent time in the emergency room being treated for minor injuries after his car was hit at Luther and Harvey Mitchell. The driver of the other car, 20 year old Kurt Kleypas of Spring, was arrested for DWI.
Also arrested for drunk driving was 27 year old Hyunseok Hwang of College Station. Police say his car struck a parked car on Welsh near Southwest Parkway, then drove on and hit a house at Welsh and Holleman. No one inside the house was hurt nor was the driver.
Another College Station man kicked out of a Northgate bar for fighting tried to reenter an hour later. Officers were told 27 year old Magnum John Boyce pointed a handgun at the manager of Dudley’s Draw, then left and tried to drive away. Thanks to heavy traffic, Boyce was caught and arrested for DWI with a prior conviction, disorderly conduct, unlawful carrying of a weapon, criminal mischief, and evading arrest.
And at Tigerland Stadium, while the Conroe High School drill team was on the field and their band was waiting to perform, a man jumped a fence from the stands to the field, ran through the drill team, and was flailing his arms in the middle of the field. The spectator then headed towards the home side but ran through the band, knocking down three or four girls and the metal ladder used by the drum major. Officers say several people piled on top of the man, causing him to fall to the ground. 41 year old Erick Pratt of College Station was arrested for criminal trespassing and public intoxication after telling officers he was on PCP. None of the students were hurt.
