CROSS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Cross County deputy found a man hiding around an elevator building early Monday morning. The deputy said the man was hiding because he was afraid of getting public intoxication charges.

The Cross County Sheriff's Office said it received a call informing officers that someone was found messing around Poinsett Rice and Grain. The deputy dispatched said he found Nathan Holloway, 28, of McCrory hiding inside the Bud Carwell elevator building.

Deputy John Gentry said when he arrived to the site, he noticed a light moving around inside, then pulled around to the south bay door where he saw Holloway holding a flashlight for a brief second before he ducked under a large piece of metal.

According to Deputy Gentry, he ordered Holloway several times to come out of the building but recieved no response. Gentry says he then moved around the side of building and detained Holloway, asking him what he was doing on the property.

Holloway responded by admitting he had been drinking and when he saw Deputy Gentry, he decided to hide because he was afraid of getting a public intox charge, said Gentry.

Reports indicate that after Holloway was arrested, Gentry also found a pile of loose cut copper wire, a flashlight, a ball cap and a pair of wire cutters lying where Mr. Holloway was trying to hide.

Holloway was charged with commercial burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, and public intox. His bond was set at $5,000.
