Wayne County man arrested after lying drunk in creek, fighting police

A Wayne County man was arrested over the weekend after falling over a bridge and lying in a creek drunk, and later eventually trying to fight police.

Just after 9 p.m. Sunday, Wayne County sheriff’s deputies and Monticello Police officers were dispatched to Elk Street on a complaint of a man harassing drivers trying to cross a bridge on the street.

Officers arrived and later found 19-year-old Dakota Sullivan of Monticello. Sullivan had fallen off the bridge and was lying in the creek drunk.

While waiting for EMTs to arrive, Sullivan reportedly tried to run away from officers and began fighting them when they attempted to apprehend him. Officers tazed Sullivan to get him into custody.

Sullivan is charged with three counts of wanton endangerment of a police officer, terroristic threatening, menacing, resisting arrest, and public intoxication. He was lodged in the Wayne County Detention Center.
