Blotter: Man accused of loudly cursing in Walmart parking lot, resisting arrest

A 25-year-old man was accused of loudly cursing in a Walmart parking lot and pulling his arms away from officers when they tried to arrest him on Sunday afternoon, according to a police report. 

He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Earlier, inside the store in the 2700 block of West University Drive , a man reported the suspect for accusing his 15-year-old daughter of stealing and attempting to get the girl to "go in the back with him," according to the report. Another person said he was shouting. 

Police arrived on the scene to find the man in the parking lot. The suspect told the officer that he was joking around with the teenage girl about stealing. He said he became upset after the girl's father called him a pervert. 

Police said the man would not cooperate, and he continued to curse loudly in the parking lot, the report said. He was taken to Denton City Jail.
