At about 2:52 a.m. Monday, one of those subjects, Andre Denard Faulks Jr., learned that using profanity in a public place constitutes disorderly conduct, especially after a police officer advises not to do it again. At the local IHOP, a police officer reportedly observed Faulks using a variety of profanity while talking with the others.
The officer reportedly got Faulks’ attention and advised him that if he used any more profanity in the restaurant, the officer was going to arrest him for disorderly conduct. He was also advised that this was his one and only warning.
Faulks reportedly laughed at the officer, turned around and said, “I only wanted some (expletive) pancakes.” The officer then reportedly walked over, asked the subject to stand up as he was under arrest for disorderly conduct and placed him in handcuffs.
