This morning, deputies and an ambulance responded to the report of an injured man acting suspiciously near Alton.  Humboldt County Sheriff spokesperson, Samantha Karges explained what happened.

She wrote,

At about 2 a.m. this morning deputies responded to the 2900 block of Van Duzen Street in Alton for the report of a suspicious unknown male subject in the reporting party’s driveway. Prior to deputy arrival, the subject fled over the fence and into a neighboring yard. Deputies were unable to locate the subject at that time, but found evidence that the man may have injured himself.

Later this morning, at about 8:30 a.m., the suspicious subject was spotted crawling out of bushes near the 2800 block of Old State Highway in Alton. The man then began walking southbound on the highway and appeared to be injured. Deputies made contact with the man, who was uncooperative and refused medical care. The subject told deputies he had fled from the property earlier in the night because he was afraid he would be arrested and taken to jail on an outstanding warrant. It turns out that his warrant was a misdemeanor warrant for DUI, which allowed for a citation and release. So the subject was cited and released.
