A man’s supposed actions recently at Scottsburg City Hall earned him an indefinite stay at the Scott County Security Center.
Glen Patterson, 52, Scottsburg, was allegedly observed by a passing motorist around 9 p.m. on Friday, May 31, as he urinated on City Hall by the facility’s drive-through window, according to the case’s probable cause affidavit.
Scottsburg Patrolman L. Travis Rutherford caught up with Patterson and attempted to get a statement from him. Patterson, the affidavit related, advised Ptl. Rutherford that he was a police officer and then told Rutherford as he was being transported the short distance to the local jail that he was a general. Patterson’s appearance, noted the patrolman, included disarrayed clothing, slurred speech and an unsteady balance. There was an alcoholic odor present as well, the document listed. Patterson appeared before Judge Marsha Owens Howser on Monday, June 3, on a charge of public intoxication. His bail was originally set at $2,500 corporate surety or 10% cash, but the judge lowered it to $1,000 surety/10% cash. His trial was scheduled for July 30. According to court records, Patterson remains incarcerated as of June 5.
