A very intoxicated man was standing in the middle of the street, issuing challenges to vehicles that passed him by, police say.

He was one of the multiple arrests they made Thursday during the day and overnight. They said Friday morning that, in the previous 24 hours, they had made five minor arrests, including three for intoxication. They were also looking for four runaways.

Two of the arrests were easy pickups for the police. They say they arrested one 21-year-old woman who was already at the Brandon courthouse on Thursday afternoon, since she had an outstanding warrant for previously failing to attend court, where she had been ordered to appear as a witness. She was held overnight and was to appear in court again on Friday morning.

At about 9:30 p.m. on Thursday was the other easy arrest. An 18-year-old Brandon man turned himself in at the police station saying that he was aware there was a warrant for his arrest. He was held overnight as well, and was to appear in court Friday, charged with failing to comply with an undertaking.

The intoxicated arrests started at 4 p.m. on Thursday, when emergency workers called for police help in dealing with a man in the 1300-block of Van Horne Avenue. Once the man was cleared medically, he was arrested; police say he had been ordered to abstain from alcohol. The 45-year-old man was held for the rest of the day and overnight, to appear in court Friday morning.

Two more intoxicated people were arrested near the Eighth Street bridge Thursday evening.

The first was a 31-year-old man who was so drunk at 9 p.m. that he was standing in the middle of the 800-block of Pacific Avenue, challenging vehicles that passed by. He was taken to jail to sober up.

A couple of hours later, around 11 p.m., officers also found a highly intoxicated man under the bridge. He was too out of it to simply be moved along, police say, and was instead taken to jail for the night.

Meanwhile, police continue to look for four runaways that were reported from group or foster homes overnight Thursday.
