Arcade Police Department officers were recently called to a residence on Rambler Inn Rd. where a man and step-son got into an argument which turned physical.

The mother said the step-son didn’t assault or threaten the man and she claimed the man gets aggressive when he’s intoxicated. The officer reported the man was intoxicated at the time. While speaking to the mother, the man reportedly kept interrupting to tell the mother what she saw.
