LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin police arrested a Lufkin man Friday morning who was accused of fighting a new friend after seeing a Donald Trump sign in his yard and then refusing to leave.

Joshua Monroy, 21, is charged with public intoxication.

According to the police report, a man told police that he had met Monroy at a party earlier in the evening and that when he and Monroy went back to the man's home in the 1200 block of Myrna Avenue at 3:47 a.m., Monroy saw a Donald Trump sign in his yard.

According to the report, Monroy became combative and tried to fight the man. The man said he told Monroy to leave and would not let him in the house.

The man said he went inside his home and a little while later came out and found Monroy sleeping in a vehicle. The report is not clear on whether it was the man's vehicle or Monroy's, but it was on the man's property.

After the officers arrived and woke him, they arrested him.

According to the report, as officers asked Monroy for information, he continued falling back asleep.
