From the Madison Police Department:
08/04/2012 - 2:19 AM
100 State Street
Nicholas Daniel Orr, 22-year-old male of Madison, Wisconsin
Charges: Consume Open Intoxicants on Public Street, Casual Possession Of Marijuana & Resisting/Obstructing A Police Officer
Madison Police Officers were on routine patrol in the 100 block of State Street on 8/4/2012 around 2:19am, and after having dealt with an inebriated person in this particular block, they noticed a male (identified as Nicholas Daniel Orr) walking past them with what was described as a “large bottle of beer” in his hand.
The officer stated that the bottle fell to the ground, and Orr immediately picked it up and drank his alcoholic beverage. As Orr attempted to walk away, officers attempted to make him aware that his behavior was less than legally appropriate, and he was under arrest.
Orr refused to allow handcuffs to be placed on his wrists, and the use of a Taser had to be threatened before the arrest was made. Officers asked Orr if he was in possession of any illegal contraband, and he responded “I shouldn’t have any on me”.
All would agree with his conclusion, but the stark reality is that Marijuana was located as well, and he was book into the Dane County Jail on all charges above.
