A man has been charged with being intoxicated in public after a disturbance call in Chatham.

According to police, it happened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning. They were dispatched to the area of Queen Street for the call.

When they arrived, they saw a 64-year-old Chatham man yelling obscenities. Because of his high level of intoxication, officers believed he was unable to care for himself and took him into custody for his own safety.
