Welfare check, 1900 block of Rich Smith Lane.

Officers were called to an apartment complex by someone who reported that they had seen a man sitting beside the dumpster covered in blood. The caller also advised that the man was crying. When officers made contact with the man, they discovered that he was "highly intoxicated" and had scratches on his arm that were bleeding. The man advised that he has been assaulted by some men while he was at a different location but left that area when someone gave him a ride. The officers called medical personnel to come check on the man’s injuries. In the meantime, the officers were able to speak with the man’s mother, who lived in the apartment complex. She advised that her son has a drinking problem. Medical personnel informed the officers that based on the man’s injuries, they believed that he may "have just fallen". The man was transported to the hospital for an evaluation at his request.
