Police promptly arrested David Keterson, 32, and charged him with persistent disorderly conduct while intoxicated, according to a Sandusky police report.
They arrived at the scene at about 1 p.m. and they found Keterson surrounded by people trying to help him onto his feet. The Sandusky Fire Department also responded to check his vital signs.
Keterson’s eyes were glassy, and he was speaking slowly. Police suspect he had been using a narcotic or some sort of abusive substance, according to the report. He declined treatment and claimed he was only experiencing an elevated heart rate because he was nervous and late for his 1 p.m. court appearance.
When police arrested Keterson, he refused to cooperate and swore at them, causing a scene on the courthouse lawn as people entered and exited the building. Police took him to Erie County Jail.
Keterson told police he was carrying weapons, but when they searched him they found none.
