•A deputy was dispatched at about 9:50 p.m. Sept. 13 regarding a report of a suspicious man at a Highway AV residence at Cabool.

A deputy was dispatched at about 3 p.m. regarding a report of an intoxicated man standing in the roadway on Highway M and throwing rocks at cars. The officer made contact with a 63-year-old man who lives in the area who said he observed Scranlin screaming obscenities, throwing rocks and failing to yield to vehicles as they drove by.

The officer then made contact with Scranlin, who was reportedly too drunk to stand up by himself and cursed at two deputies on the scene and threatened to fight the man who called in the report.
