Usually, people are trying to stay out of trouble when they show up to court.
It didn't quite go that way for one 24-year-old Parma man on Jan. 17.
A representative from the Brecksville courts called over to the police station after realizing that the man had a warrant out for his arrest in Middleburg Heights. Police checked on the warrant, and the Middleburg Heights department said they wanted to pick the man up.
Officers took the man into custody, who then had to walk the short distance to the station to wait to be picked up. He had been pleading not guilty to his Brecksville offense.
Police had found the man trying to hide a needle in a police car the week before.
