This Halloween night performance by this "Boy Scout" certainly won't earn him any badges.
Twenty-four-year-old Eric P Fagan, dressed as a Boy Scout for Halloween, was arrested for resisting an officer without violence early Saturday morning, according to Orlando police. Police also say he was likely intoxicated.
Officers approached Fagan around 3:30 a.m. after they saw his vehicle facing the wrong direction on Mills Avenue and Colonial Drive, according to an arrest report. He was slumped over in his convertible, police said.
When the officer asked Fagan why he was facing the wrong direction, he denied it, the report said.
He also refused to provide his driver's license. After the officer said he would be arrested if he didn't provide one, he took it out to show the officer, but refused to hand it over, the report said.
"I explained that I could not read to from where I was standing and that I would not come any closer for officer safety reasons," the officer wrote.
Fagan eventually handed the license over, and then refused to get out of the vehicle, police said.
He was "removed" from the vehicle and arrested, according to the arrest report.
Police said his eyes were glassy, red and bloodshot and smelled of alcohol. A DUI investigation was not conducted because of Fagan's "uncooperative nature," police said.
He was taken to the Orange County Jail, where it appears he has since bonded out.
