Drunk, armed US Marshal arrested for public disturbance

ALPINE (CNS) – An intoxicated U.S. Marshal was escorted from his Alpine
apartment complex after neighbors complained he was banging on doors while
carrying his service weapon, authorities said Tuesday.

The disturbance in the 1500 block of Tavern Road was reported around
5:10 p.m. Monday, according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. J.T. Faulkner.

Deputies called the U.S. Marshals Service, which in turn escorted the
drunken federal law enforcement official away, Faulkner said.

He was apparently carrying his gun in his waistband or holster, Faulkner
said.

No other details were released.
