WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A Wichita Falls man is behind bars, facing several charges following a check welfare call to police early Tuesday morning.

Around 5 a.m. officers were called out to the 4500 block of Kell Blvd. to check on the welfare of a person who was seen slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle.

When officers arrived, they found Stacey Payton Stouard, Jr., 19, in the front seat. According to police, Stouard appeared to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. 

While officers tried to wake Stouard up they could see a pistol in the center console that was not in a holster. It was later determined the firearm had been stolen during a burglary of a vehicle on Monday night in the 4300 block of Berwick.

As Stouard began to wake up, he told officers he had pulled over into the parking lot to sleep because he had taken two Xanax pills that were not prescribed to him.

Officers placed him under arrest for public intoxication. During a search of the vehicle, a rolled-up marijuana cigarette was found. While being taken to the Wichita Co. Jail, officers said Stouard began to threaten the arresting officer and the life of the officer's family members.

Stouard was booked into the Wichita Co. Jail and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, theft of a firearm, retaliation, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.

On Wednesday, he was still in the Wichita Co. Jail and no bond had been set.
