Police Report: Suspicious pedestrian allegedly scuffles with officer

A man was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and resisting an officer after he was seen walking in and out of traffic at Stateline Avenue and Highway 50, according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office report.

A deputy responded to a report of a suspicious pedestrian Dec. 1 and saw the man, who appeared intoxicated. Officers from South Lake Tahoe Police Department arrived to assist.

The man allegedly wouldn’t cooperate with the deputy, refusing to say what his address was.

The man then said the police were “screwing and disrespecting him.” He reached into his pocket, and the deputies considered it a possible reach for a weapon. Officers secured the man in a rear wrist lock and he tried to pull away. He was taken to jail and given a preliminary breath test, which was 0.187, according to the report.

A man reported being attacked outside of Dart Liquor at around 10 p.m. Nov. 30, according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s report.

He said he left Dart Liquor after purchasing a beer and was jumped by an unknown man wearing black. He said he was punched many times and lost consciousness for 10 minutes.

The man went to Barton Memorial Hospital, where he was contacted by a deputy. He said he did not want to make a report. His injuries were not life-threatening.
