Body camera footage shows him yelling “f*/k you!” to police as he attempts to pull away from them. He was transported to Metro General for medical clearance, where he continued to resist personnel, and then transported to booking.
18-year-old Daniel Alarcon was initially sent to Skyline Hospital for treatment when officers encountered him due to his young age and extreme level of intoxication.

He was eventually placed into custody after he stated he would “rather go to jail than stay in the hospital.” Once they attempted to place him in cuffs, he stated he wanted to “just go home” instead. Alarcon admitted to drinking an entire bottle of liquor.
