Blotter: Police charge man with public intoxication

Comments () A Text Size

A domestic disturbance led to a Denton man’s arrest Sunday.

Officers were dispatched to a domestic call in the 700 block of Frame Street. It was reported that a man had slapped a woman and then left the area on foot but later returned.

Officers arrived and spoke with the parties involved but were unable to develop enough probable cause to arrest the man on an assault charge, reports state. The man, however, was intoxicated, police said, and was arrested on a charge of public intoxication, according to a police report.
