Police Arrest Insistent Suspect

BURLINGTON, IA (AP) -- Burlington officers say a man who had insisted they arrest him finally gave them a reason: He broke their lobby gumball machine.

Police say officers responding to a call Wednesday night encountered the 37-year-old man at a gas station. He told them he was high and wanted to go to jail, saying he feared for his life.

The Hawk Eye says officers told him they couldn't arrest him if he hadn't committed a crime, so he tried unsuccessfully to damage a patrol cruiser.

They took him to the police station as he requested. The officers say he then broke the gumball machine. He was arrested.

After the man's video hearing Thursday, the judge suggested the man ought to be evaluated. The jail administrator agreed to look into the arrangements.
