When police arrived on the scene, the found Richard Alexander Fuentes passed out lying across the driver's seat with his feet hanging out of the window of the truck.

In the arrest report, officers said they could smell alcohol on Fuentes' breath and his speech was slurred. Officers also said his eyes were bloodshot and he continued to lean on the truck for balance.

When getting Fuentes out of the ambulance the EMT said Fuentes punched her on the left side of her face causing her to fall back into the ambulance. 

Fuentes was immediately taken to the ground and put in handcuffs according to WFPD.

Fuentes was booked into the Wichita County Jail around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, charged with Assault Public Servant and Public Intoxication.
