A Brownwood man was arrested at Wal-Mart Sunday night on a charge of possession of a dangerous drug after police investigated a report that a man with a Taser was threatening another man. Officer Chandra Geis arrested Britt Stevens, 38, after finding a Vicodin pill in his pocket, Geis’ report states.
Geis was told the man had earlier pulled a Taser from his pocket and asked someone “have you seen one of these,” but did not threaten anyone, the report states.
Employees said the man had entered the store and asked to see a specific employee, Geis’ report states. Geis was told the man may have been looking for the employee who had called the police on June 24 to report an intoxicated driver in the parking lot. The man was arrested after the June 24 incident.
In other incidents:
• Officer Trey Weath-ermon arrested Richard Garcia, 21, on a charge of possession of a dangerous drug and on outstanding warrants including possession of marijuana under 2 ounces after a traffic stop early Sunday morning.
• Someone took a four-wheeler from a landowner’s property on County Road 159.
• Deputy Steven Means arrested Joshua Coleman, 24, and Clifton Netherton, 27, both of Brownwood, on charges of public intoxication and disorderly conduct after investigating a fight at Sandy Beach Park Friday.
An off-duty Dallas County deputy told Means that one of the men had been involved in a wreck inside the park. He told Means the other man had become upset and used profane language around several women and children.
When the Dallas County deputy identified himself as a police officer, one of the men said “(expletive) you,” Means’ report states.
