When police arrived, Coslor took off, and officers pursued him all the way to 12th Street and Third Avenue West, where Coslor crashed his car at the intersection. He sustained a minor cut on his head.

Teen arrested for ingestion of marijuana, providing false information

A Dickinson teen was arrested Saturday afternoon for ingestion of a controlled substance and providing false information to law enforcement.

Dickinson Police were called to the 600 block of 8th Avenue West after a man called to report that his neighbor had come by to ask for a lighter. The man allegedly lit up a joint in front of the caller and his children.

Officers went next door to investigate, and as one officer spoke to two adolescent females inside, the other officer saw a male jump the fence behind the house. The two females said they were the only ones home.

After leaving to respond to a priority call, officers returned to the residence and this time spoke with the father of one of the two females, who told them William Clark, 19, was in the home.

Clark matched the description the neighbor had provided. He told police he had been sleeping the whole time and denied being the man officers had seen hopping over a fence.

Police found marijuana and paraphernalia in Clark’s pocket and arrested him for ingestion of a controlled substance and for providing false information.
