On November 5, 2017, at 10 p.m. Gibson County Central Dispatch received a 911 report of a white male wearing seat pants and a cut off shirt running around the 300 block of North Church Street in Fort Branch while causing a disturbance. Deputy U.B. Smith located 40 year old Michael Canfield at the Casey’s General Store in an outfit described by the 911 caller. While speaking with Mr. Canfield his actions were erratic and Deputy Smith began a roadside investigation into the 911 report. During his investigation Mr. Canfield’s actions became more erratic and he was taken into custody and transported to the Gibson County Jail. At the Gibson County Jail Mr. Canfield was charged with Public Intoxication. He has since posted a $550 bond.
