Man suspected of walking along busy street while intoxicated

"[The suspect] was walking in traffic on a busy road, a civilian driver called earlier and advised dispatch that he was walking in the street stumbling. Due to the circumstances, I placed [the suspect] under arrest and transported him to Unit 2 for detox."
