NICEVILLE – A Crestview man who fell asleep in a Waffle House and didn’t wake up for more than an hour was arrested and charged with trespassing.
The 36-year-old man also faces charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest.
According to his Niceville Police Department arrest report, the man had been asked to leave four times by employees. He told them he was too intoxicated to go anywhere, the report said.
When the officer arrived, he found the man passed out at one of the tables. He attempted to wake the suspect, who was lethargic and had slurred speech, the report said.
He then became irate and profane, complaining he had no one to pick him up.
At that point, the officers cuffed him and told him he was under arrest for trespassing. He was belligerent and combative, kicking the door of the restaurant as they forced him out. This incident happened in the early morning hours.
