Man: I Would Not Arrest Drug Dealers, Prostitutes
A Cartersville man arrested and charged with disorderly conduct told police there's nothing officers can do to stop two problems.
A Cartersville man jailed on a disorderly conduct charge said if he were a police officer, he would not arrest drug dealers and prostitutes.
Actual Cartersville Police Department officers arrested Jeffefy Paul Wilkins, 52, of Hattie Street, at Crown Inn after responding to a 10:30 p.m. call Thursday about an intoxicated man who was irate and refused to leave, according to the incident report, attached.
Police say Wilkins walked away and tried to pretend police weren't asking him for his name and birth date.
"I know you gotta dance your dance, but I ain't willing to dance that dance," Wilkins said to police, before allegedly refusing to give his identity.
Police say he had trouble walking up the motel stairs.
"As I was speaking with Mr. Wilkins I further observed his intoxication as he was swaying wildly, drooling and spitting while speaking, and his words were extremely slurred," an officer reported. "I asked Mr. Wilkins for his name and date of birth approximately two more times before he finally stated, 'Go [expletive] yourself, that is my name.'"
After he was arrested, Wilkins allegedly became more uncooperative and said that if he were a police officer, he would not arrest drug dealers or prostitutes, because there is nothing police can do to stop those two problems.
"When I advised Mr. Wilkins that it is probably a good thing he is not a police officer, he became very irate and began yelling and cursing in the back seat of my patrol car," the officer reported.
