Maybe it was a citizen's arrest.

also perhaps they should do this more often seems like they're getting alot of free publicity.

Officer: "Once a citation is issued, which is similar to getting a minor traffic ticket, the next step with non-compliance is to actually make an arrest."


Then come the snipers and the SWAT teams with the flash-bangs, the tear gas, the dogs and the white phosphorous...

True - the 71 rounds the SWAT team spent executing a guy for having no drugs were probably far from quiet.

Small town problems are always sort of whimsical because they're usually,

A. Pretty unproblematic as problems go. A bunch of crackers getting all squinty at each other and calling the po lice.

B. Stunningly easy to resolve without the po ice if you think about it. and

C. Bare face attempts to get revenue out of a population that all knows each other's kid's names. We need more small town problems.

"Because we had already wrote a citation the first time and it didn't seem to resolve the matter, that's why he was arrested."

This from the police Captain. I'm sure he'll be a Major General in the police forces of America before long.

Key to the entire story:

"On the day of his arrest in late April, Slate was alone at the store. He became involved in a disturbance with city workers preparing for the dedication of a downtown rest area that evening honoring former Mayor Jack Loftis, according to Capt. Lowe."

"Slate subsequently was approached by police who advised that the checkerboard setup was in violation and had to be removed. 'And he chose not to,' Lowe said."

Translation: "Otis" gave city workers shiat about their new rest area, or its dedication, or its honoree. They said, "ORLY? How 'bout we arrest his ass for doing the same thing he's been doing every day for years, under the pretext of some outdated, unenforced city ordinance? That'll shut him up!"

That's pretty much what I got out of it.

The reason Slate was physically arrested rather than simply issued a citation, Lowe explained, was that such a citation previously had been issued against the business - specifically for Slate's son Dusty - for having items on the sidewalk in violation of the ordinance. Once a citation is issued, which is similar to getting a minor traffic ticket, the next step with non-compliance is to actually make an arrest.

Since Dusty Slate earlier had been cited and his father is closely associated with the store, the citation issued to the son was considered the "warning" for the elder Slate to avoid the arrest stage, as explained by Lowe. "Because we had already wrote a citation the first time and it didn't seem to resolve the matter, that's why he was arrested."


Hmmm...

This may sound harsh, but the article made it clear that this "Otis" character has a checkered past.
