Officers were first sent to the area of Tippecanoe Drive and Hepler Drive and then to the area behind Purity Cylinder near Dot Street, a few blocks south. They found a man on Dot Street, sweating profusely, agitated, making statements that did not make sense and having trouble following simple instructions, the police said in a statement issued Tuesday.
