Arrested – Erratic man on Lord Street, Southport
Police were called to Lord Street, Southport following reports man out of control this evening, Tuesday 19 July 2016.
The first police officer arrived 15 minutes after the 999 call shortly after 8pm followed by backup five minutes later.
Southport resident Nick Green was drinking a nearby bar at the time, he told OTSNews.co.uk “The guy was off his box – he was lying in front of traffic, abusing elderly people, urinated in his own pants and then washed off fully clothed in the fountain.”
“Police officers didn’t want to make a scene arresting the man so arranged to let him go down Lord Street, then arrested him!”
The male was taken to one of Southport’s nearest custody suites either Marsh Lane or Copy Lane in Liverpool for further questioning.
