50-Year old Joseph Myatt III was spotted by Officer S. Jackson “stumbling” down West Main Street. Officer Jackson stopped to check on Myatt and determined, “Due to his level of intoxication, he was deemed to be a danger to himself or others.”
When Myatt was transferred to the county jail, he allegedly made several threats to Officer Jackson. One of those threats included blowing up the arresting officers’ house. Another threat included Myatt finding Officer Jackson without his badge on, although he did not specify what would take place if he found Officer Jackson without a badge on.
