*A Pensacola, Fla. man was arrested June 20 after Atmore police responded around noon to the 1800 block of South Main Street in reference to “a suspicious person sitting in a parked vehicle, acting strangely.”
Officers contacted the driver, Ryan Rais Green, 29, who was parked next to the roadway with the vehicle running, was talking to himself and “seemed to be under the influence of alcohol and/or narcotics.”
