An intoxicated man was arrested at the Kangaroo on Lee Highway after police watched him nearly fall out of the door before he sat down in the gas station parking lot, eating hot dogs off the ground.
Police were originally called to the Bi-Lo on Lee Highway after customers and staff reported the same man staggering around the parking lot on Saturday.
The man, 56-year-old Robert David Caron, then attempted to cross Lee Highway. While in the road, police said he was nearly hit by a driver.
When police finally found him at the gas station, they said his eyes were bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol. His speech was also slurred.
For his safety and the safety of the public, Caron was arrested and charged with public intoxication.
