Bathroom break

1:49 a.m. — 400 block of South Church Street, Bunnell

Resist officers. A 49-year-old man disobeyed an order from a deputy because he had to use the bathroom, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Just before 2 a.m., a Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted two men riding their bicycles on the wrong side of the road, according to the 49-year-old’s arrest report. The deputy flashed his lights to initiate a traffic stop.

One of the riders stopped his bike in the driveway of a home on South Church Street, while the other ran inside the home without stopping, even though the officer called for him to come back.

The deputy knocked on the door and spoke to a woman, who made the 49-year-old man exit the home. The deputy arrested the man for ignoring the deputy’s orders. When asked why he didn’t stop, the man told the deputy that he had to use the bathroom.
