4:46 p.m. Police responded to a call on High School Road after an unwanted man refused to leave a residence. Tenants told officers that the man began drinking the day before and had not stopped. The unwanted man had been in the bathroom for over an hour, refused to get out, and at one point had fallen into the bathtub.
Officers knocked on the door but could not communicate with the man. When officers entered the bathroom they found the man sitting on the toilet with his pants around his ankles. He said he had to go to the bathroom and could not leave yet. Police asked him to hurry up and said it was time to leave.
The man eventually came out and officers helped him walk out of the home. The man repeated that he was drunk. Police then drove him to his home on the island.
