A Perry man was arrested on Thanksgiving night after allegedly breaking a window and fleeing from a police officer while intoxicated.
Jose Alfredo Sanchez, 28, of 2609 Otley Ave., Perry, was charged with interference with official acts, fifth-degree criminal mischief and public intoxication.
The incident began about 9 p.m. Thursday when the Perry Police Department received a report that someone came to a residence in the 2500 block of Perry Park Avenue and “asked if a subject named Nick” lived there.
The person calling at the residence was Sanchez, who reportedly became “upset” on learning that “Nick does not live there,” and allegedly “ripped off the screen to the window and broke the window, causing approximately $200 in damage,” according to court records.
An officer responded to the report and located Sanchez “a few blocks away” from the scene of the broken window. According to the officer, “I got out of my patrol car and told Sanchez to stop and come to me. He responded with, ‘Fuck you, Sparks, you didn’t have your lights on,’ and then took off running.”
Sanchez was taken into custody shortly afterward “when he ran into a dead end.”
According to court records, the officer allegedly detected on or around Sanchez “a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” and “bloodshot, watery eyes.”
Sanchez is held in the Dallas County Jail on a $900 cash or surety bond in advance of an initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
