Brownwood police arrested a man for allegedly leaving a small amount of marijuana under a restaurant tablecloth, and in an unrelated incident, police arrested a man whose erratic behavior included lying down in bed of fire ants and pretending to throw money.
    Those were among numerous weekend incidents involving law enforcement responses.
    Michael Dobson, 25, of Lake Jackson, was booked into the Brown County Jail on a charge of possession of marijuana under 2 ounces after a witness alerted police about marijuana under a tablecloth at Skillets, police and jail records state.
    John Stephens, 37, of Glen Rose, was arrested outside Brownwood Regional Medical Center on a public intoxication charge.
    Officer Chandra Means responded to both incidents.
    According to Means’ report:
    Means was dispatched Sunday to the 1500 block of Austin after a man told a dispatcher he was being chased by someone trying to kill him. The man waved down Means as she approached and said he was in town filming a YouTube video. The man said people had chased him and shined laser lights at him the night before.
    The man also told Means he’d smoked marijuana and drank beer the night before. Means asked the man if he needed help, and when he said yes, Means drove the man to the Brownwood Regional Medical Center emergency room.
    The man told the staff he’d taken a gram of cocaine and drank beer the night before and felt dehydrated. The man was treated and released and medically cleared.
    “We received a call that he was outside, pretending to throw money in the air and had laid in a bed of fire ants,” Means’ report states.
    Means arrested the man on a public intoxication charge.
