Herring was located in front of Fast Eddies, according to an affidavit for probable cause. The officer noted Herring appeared to be intoxicated and was placed under arrest for public intoxication.

While he was being transported to jail, Herring threaten the officer by saying he would assault him when they arrived at the jail. 

He also told the officer, “What is your address, going to burn it to the ground.”
