A 25-year-old man who lives on Woodcutter Avenue finally got himself taken into custody at 1:47 a.m. Sept. 12 in the 5800 block of North Meadows Boulevard after being given several chances to avoid arrest, according to an officer who responded to the scene.

At 12:40 a.m., the suspect was given a trespass warning at the request of a 23-year-old woman. The man allegedly refused to leave. The responding officer said he detained the man and issued him a summons before allowing him to leave.

"The arrestee then ripped up his summons and threw it on the ground," the report said. "The arrestee then returned ... after officers had left. Officers returned to find the arrestee at the said location."

This time they took him to the Franklin County jail.
