Man tries to attend class under the influence

A Salisbury man was arrested Thursday evening when he arrived drunk at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College determined to go to class, police said.

William Todd Summers, 52, of the 2000 block of East Innes Street was charged with resist, delay or obstruction of a public officer, impaired driving and second degree trespassing.

A Rowan County sheriff’s deputy who was working extra duty at the college called Salisbury Police to assist him when Summers entered the college parking lot driving erratically.

According to police reports, Summers spun out his white Ford Explorer multiple times and nearly hit a car as he attempted to park.

When the deputy started walking toward him, he walked away.

When police arrived at the scene and found Summers, he became agitated and smelled of alcohol, according to the report.

They asked him to call someone to pick him up and leave campus, but he refused, saying that he wanted to go to class, according to Capt. Shelia Lingle.

“It took him a while to cooperate,” she said, adding that even after he was handcuffed, “he started to walk away.”

When police searched Summers, they found a small bottle of Jim Beam whiskey with only a small amount of beverage left in it.

Summers refused a breathalyzer test at the police department, so he was taken to Novant Health Medical Center for a blood test.

Summers was taken to the Rowan County Detention Center, and his bond was set at $1,000.
