GEORGETOWN, Del.- Georgetown police say they arrested an intoxicated man after he walked up to a police vehicle to insist officers check his identification card and then tried to grab it back before the check could be made. 

Police said that around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, 44-year-old Johnny N. Finney, of Georgetown, was taken into custody for an incident that occurred in the parking lot of the 400 building at the Dunbarton Oaks Apartment complex.

Officers said they were sitting in the parking lot at Dunbarton Oaks when Finney walked up to the passenger side of their patrol vehicle. Finney appeared to be intoxicated and told officers several times to check his identification card because he did not have any warrants, police said.

Police said that when one of the officers took his identification card and got ready to perform a warrant check, Finney tried to grab the card out of the officer’s hand. He was then taken into custody with no further incident.

A portable breath test showed Finney’s blood alcohol content was at .13, police said. He was charged with disorderly conduct and ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of a $500 secured bond with a future court date.
