James Yoes, 51, of Williston, was arrested yesterday afternoon after resisting arrest and defecating in the Walmart parking lot.
Yoes was arrested at about 5:30 p.m. after police responded to a call about a drunken man at Walmart, according to a statement from the Williston Police Department. They found Yoes in the parking lot wearing nothing but underwear.
Yoes told officers it was too hot in his car. He didn’t want to start the vehicle to use the air conditioning because he was drunk.
He had been living out of the vehicle, and was already forbidden from drinking by the courts following a previous conviction.
Officers attempted to arrest Yoes, and, during the altercation, Yoes removed his boxer shorts and defecated on the parking lot.
He is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and contempt of court for violating the court’s order to not ingest alcohol.
