Yelling in the streets
Two separate street incidents in Butte sent two people to jail over the past few days, with both men yelling and screaming at others before officers arrived.
Police say Zachary Ryan Webber, 40, who is homeless, was in the street on the 10 block of Broadway Street late Friday morning, trying to pick fights with people and yelling at them.
He resisted arrest before police wrestled him to the ground and cuffed him. He was booked on misdemeanor complaints of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct and was still in jail late Monday morning.
Around 2 a.m. Monday, police responded to a disturbance outside of Spud McGee’s bar at 541 S. Main St. and learned that Willie Isaac Erickson, 38, of Butte had been yelling and screaming at patrons outside the bar.
They were his friends and did not want him arrested. Neither did employees at the bar, but police say Erickson was unable to take care of himself, so they took him to jail on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct complaint. He was released late Monday morning on his own recognizance.
Pulled a gun
A resident in the area of Second and Colorado streets told police that a man pulled a gun on him around 2 a.m. Sunday.
The resident said a man wearing a black sweatshirt, hat, and jeans was hanging around an alley but then left. But a short time later, the man showed up in the resident’s backyard. After they talked briefly, the man pulled a gun from his pocket before taking off toward Montana Street. Police were unable to find him.
