Loitering. A police officer was patrolling when he noticed a light flickering in a parking lot near an auto parts shop.

The light turned out to be a man peering into locked cars with his cell phone’s flashlight, but the man began to walk away once he noticed the officer’s unmarked police car, according to an arrest report. The officer immediately flashed his emergency lights and walked up to the man.

When asked what he was doing, the man first said he was looking for a place to get warm and then said he was looking for his lost bicycle that he had left in the area a few days prior, the report said.

He could not explain to the officer why he chose to look for the bike at 10 p.m. instead of during the day. The man was arrested for loitering or prowling, the report said.

Crying over spilled alcohol

1:37 a.m. — 100 block of North Ocean Shore Boulevard, Flagler Beach

Disorderly conduct. A police officer on patrol received a call about a brawl happening in the parking lot of a bar, only to find the argument started over a spilled drink.

The fight started when two men who were hanging out together at the bar began to leave, an arrest report said. One man reached out to give the other a handshake and the other man knocked a woman’s drink out of her hand.

The suspect then began shouting that the first man was picking fights with women, so the first man left and got into his car. That’s when the second man punched the first, the report said.

Employees separated the second man from the first, who did not fight back. Although the victim did not wish to press charges, the first man would not stop yelling or causing a scene, so the deputy placed him under arrest for disorderly conduct, the report said.
