RussellsPoint Police patch

Jeffrey Huffmon, 52 of Lakeview, was charged with public intoxication related to an incident early this morning in the area of west Main Street and west Wilgus Drive in Russells Point.

Officers of the Russells Point Police Department on patrol about 1 a.m. in that area reportedly observed someone stumbling in the roadway.

They stopped to check on the subject, who initially refused to identify himself and briefly tried to flee from officers. He was eventually identified as Huffmon, and while speaking with him, officers noticed slurred speech, an odor of alcohol and various other signs of serious impairment. Huffmon was arrested and transported to the Logan County Jail, where he reportedly admitted to corrections staff that he drank “a lot of beer.”
