The following are excerpts from reports recently generated by the Houston Police Department:

•Kyle L. McCrackin, 32, of 211 S. Grand Ave., No. 107, in Houston, was issued a citation for failure to obey a lawful order on March 25.

At about 11:25 p.m., a woman called 911 requesting officers go to a Chestnut Street residence regarding a highly intoxicated man – McCrackin – wanting to fight people.

Two officers approached McCrackin (who was standing on a sidewalk) and he walked aggressively toward one of them asking if he wanted to fight. The officer told McCrackin to back away, and he then walked aggressively toward the other officer.

McCrackin also was asked to leave the property several times, and was even offered a ride, but he refused, according to a report. He was finally arrested and taken to the Texas County Jail for a 12-hour hold.

•James C. Leyrer, 38, of 403 N. Grand Ave. in Houston, and Jackson C. Morgan, 46, who is officially homeless, were each issued citations for peace disturbance by fighting after being involved in a physical altercation at Casey’s General Store on U.S. 63 at about 8:40 p.m. March 24.
