The Lufkin Police Department has issued a statement on this Friday morning's incident in which officers responded to reports of a male subject acting erratically and attempting to enter vehicles while people were driving.

Officers responded to the 1100 block of John Redditt Drive (west Loop 287) in Lufkin and located the individual, later identified as Victor Daniel Feliciano, 32, at the intersection of Old Union and John Redditt.

When officers tried to communicate with the suspect, he ignored their commands and displayed signs of being under the influence of narcotics.

As officers attempted to arrest Feliciano, he began resisting and fighting them. He pulled away, kicked at the officers, and refused to be handcuffed. Despite his resistance, the officers managed to secure him and transported him to the Angelina County Jail.

Feliciano is booked on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Lufkin Police officials want the area citizens to know that this was not a case of an attempted carjacking or kidnapping, nor have there been similar instances of these occurrences.

An earlier Facebook post from a friend of this post's author indicated that a lady had been the victim of this man allegedly trying to enter the woman's vehicle. Although this was a dangerous situation for the woman involved, this event should not lead anyone to believe that a trend of attempted carjackings or car invasions has been occurring in the area, as was indicated in a previous story.

That said, always be alert to your surroundings, be observant at all times, and make sure that you and your family practice smart safety tactics when away from your home.

I like the stories about Lufkin Police and kangaroos a lot more than these.
