A UTC football player was arrested early Saturday morning after an alleged drunken disorder in Douglas Heights, a student apartment building on Douglas Street.
Montrell Pardue, 20, is a defensive back for UTC. When officers stepped out of the main elevator on the fourth floor, they found him shouting expletives at those nearby, according to court records.
A crowd of people had gathered around the commotion, some of them residents of the building who stepped out of their rooms to see the source of the noise, the police report stated.
When an officer told Pardue to come forward to speak with him, Pardue allegedly called the officers "punk a-- white b------."
One of the responding officers said he could smell alcohol on Pardue.
When the officer attempted to arrest Pardue he pulled away and yelled more expletives. He was taken into custody only after multiple officers took him to the ground.
As Pardue was escorted to a police car, he yelled fewer expletives and began incoherently talking about Jerusalem and loving God.
He would not give authorities more personal information, such as his birth date or Social Security number, and was abrasive with intake staff at the Hamilton County Jail, the report stated.
Pardue has been charged with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest. He is scheduled to appear before General Sessions Judge Lila Statom on Monday.
