The officer then heard Mobley allegedly say to him, "Hey where you going, you going to eat here?" The officer then said, "Yeah." Mobley then asked, "Which one of the restaurants you going to?" The officer said, "Excuse me." Then Mobley said, "I'm not from around here and I see two places to eat, a Caribbean place and a Mexican, which one you going to?" The officer then said, "The Mexican place." Mobley then said, "All right I think I'll go there then."

The officer observed Mobley's behavior as he drove away. He also examined the tag on the vehicle for the county and state of origin.

Mobley then said to the officer that he did not need to "size him up" and he did not need to look at his tag. Mobley allegedly spoke in a loud and very agitated voice. The officer told Mobley to park his vehicle.

Mobley parked his vehicle. The officer walked towards the vehicle as Mobley exited. Mobley allegedly continued to speak loudly and in a very agitated tone. He then allegedly said, "Man you ain't got to size me up like that, I'm a human being and you got to show me respect."

The officer attempted to settle Mobley down and spoke to him in a calm tone, however Mobley allegedly kept speaking in a loud voice.

The officer also noticed Mobley's fists were allegedly tightly clenched.

The officer placed Mobley under arrest and advised him he was being arrested for disorderly conduct.

over a vehicle

Police arrived in the area of Puckett Street on Monday after it was reported cars were allegedly racing down the street.
When police arrived, they saw several vehicles parked on the side of the road with people standing around. They could also allegedly smell the odor of burnt rubber.

The officer sped up to try and catch up with the male, but lost sight of him before the officer could get to his location. The officer then conversed with another officer, asking if he could be in route with a canine.

The officer walked over to the vehicle to make sure no one was still in the vehicle, however the officer then noticed the car had crashed into the telephone pole at the stop sign on the corner of Puckett Street and Chaney Street.
