Public Intoxication — Crystal D. Hernandez of Huntingdon was charged with public intoxication following an August 16 domestic incident.
According to the report by Officer Carlton Cupples, William Hurlburt called the HPD to report that his girlfriend [Hernandez] was drunk and out of control and that she had hit him in the nose with her fist and threw a can of soda at him. Officers found Hernandez walking along the street and transported her back to the residence at 173 Beasly Street. Hernandez told officers that she had consumed a pint of vodka.
License Violation — Marlon D. McClerkin of Huntingdon was cited into court for driving on a suspended license during an August 10 traffic stop on Veterans Drive South.
Officer Labe Ezell reported that he pulled over a red 1995 GMC Sonoma driven by McClerkin because he had prior knowledge that his license was suspended. A computer check confirmed the suspended status of McClerkin’s license.
Aggravated Burglary — Marquetta L. Milton of Huntingdon was arrested for aggravated burglary on August 10.
According to the report by Officer Labe Ezell, he responded to a call about an assault at Hillcourt Circle. Upon arrival, Ezell observed Milton, who was banned from being at that address. Milton fled on foot and hid from officers. Though the person who had called about the assault did not want to press charges, officers determined that Milton should be charged with aggravated burglary for entering the residence where she had been banned. Officers later went back and searched that residence and found Milton hiding in a hallway closet.
Theft — Ryan Leigh Ballentine of Huntingdon was cited for theft under $1,000 for allegedly stealing items from a local business.

Ezell then went to Ballentine’s residence, where Ballentine admitted to taking the items. These items included cold sore medicine and two individual packs of laundry detergent.
