NACOGDOCHES (KTRE) - The Nacogdoches Police Department had to make a strange arrest on Tuesday night.

They arrested Donald Drew Craig, 28, of Mt. Pleasant just before midnight in the parking lot of the La Quinta motel on South Street. Craig is charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest.

What made the arrest strange is that Craig is a member of the Mt. Pleasant Police Department.

Nacogdoches police responded to a call that a white patrol car had run over a curb in the parking lot of the nearby Sonic. Craig exited a hotel room and was suspected of being intoxicated, and he also resisted officers when they attempted to arrest him.

Craig was in Nacogdoches for a training school.
