That Guy Has an "Arrest Wish"

Foothills Area

Jan. 4, 7:45 p.m.

Through words and actions, a man was pretty much asking to go to jail—and he got the appropriate "answer," whether he wanted it consciously or not, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

Sheriff's deputies responded to a north-side business, outside of which a strange man in an orange backpack had been suspiciously—and rather ostentatiously—pacing back and forth for quite some time. While pacing in this odd manner in this public space, he had made no effort to conceal the fact that he was holding a knife in his hand.

When deputies stopped him, he immediately told them he had warrants out for his arrest, adding that he had a "rig" (a kit used for injecting drugs intravenously) in his backpack—which deputies found he did indeed (six syringes, two pieces of an aluminum can, a tourniquet and numerous cotton balls). After confirming that he also had two warrants against him, deputies brought the subject to jail without facing a bit of resistance.
