A Perry man allegedly became aggressive on Second Street early Saturday after a downtown barkeeper refused to serve him.
Patrick Dwayne Moore, 34, of 1415 Otley Ave., Perry, was charged with disorderly conduct-abusive epithet/threatening gesture.
The incident began about 1:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1200 block of Second Street in downtown Perry, where a Dallas County Deputy Sheriff responded to a report of someone “screaming at people and walking down the middle of the roadway,” according to court records.
The deputy made contact with Moore, who was found “walking southbound down the middle of Second Street towards Willis Avenue,” according to court records.
Witnesses in the vicinity identified Moore as the person “causing the disturbance in the area,” according to court records.
Moore allegedly “began to start screaming at people in the area and calling them” by offensive names after he “was denied service at” a nearby tavern, according to court records.
Moore was held in the Dallas County Jail on a $300 cash or surety bond in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
Moore was convicted of disorderly conduct-loud or raucous noise in 2019 in Dallas County District Court.
