Officers observed a vehicle stopped on Douglas Street and asked a man why he was obstructing the roadway. The man said he saw a man lying on the ground and was checking to see if he was okay.

Officers then made contact with the man on the ground and determined he was okay. Police instructed him to find somewhere else to stay, rather than the front door of the apartment complex, and he complied.
