Denton police received calls about a suspicious man running in and out of traffic near the Denton Square Monday afternoon.
When they arrived at the scene, they found 25-year-old Joseph Augustini covered in black ink and screaming incoherently.
Augustini reportedly screamed at the police to “remove their guns,” in order for them to have a fair fight. When the police pried him for information, Augustini screamed at them “I know the law! I am the law!”
Augustini was eventually arrested, where police found a clear, glass pipe on his person. They tested the pipe, and it came back positive for amphetamines. Augustini was arrested on charges of non-alcohol public intoxication and possession of drug paraphernalia.
