Local man interferes with police, leads to arrest


A 23-year-old Waco man in jail after he tried to prevent police from arresting a young woman outside a Waco nightclub early Wednesday morning. The incident happened about 1:45 a.m. in the 500 block of Austin Ave. 

Police had been watching crowds coming out of two bars in the area because of past problems. A female officer noticed a woman getting loud and shouting profanity at people around her.

As police stopped the woman, and prepared to arrest her for public intoxication. 

Paul David Mabbitt approached the woman, grabbed her arm and began struggling with her and another officer who arrived on the scene to help. Police took Mabbitt down, and struggled to keep him down until officers deployed a taser on him. 

Mabbitt was transported to the McLennan County Jai charged with interfering with duties of a public servant and resisting arrest.
