A woman relayed to officers that “she went into the store and when she came out, she saw Crump standing her her car yelling at the her kids. (The woman) stated when she confronted Crump about it, he began yelling at her and trying to fight her.”

The officer “was able to hear Crump yelling” when he arrived and exited his patrol car. Crump was handcuffed and detained. Ultimately,, however, “Crump was later turned away from the Sheriff’s Office (jail) for high temperature and claims of diarrhea.
