A man who said during the public speaking portion of the Fife City Council meeting Tuesday that he could “access money faster than anyone” going to an ATM was later arrested, Fife police said Wednesday.
The comment concerned those at the meeting, prompting officers to contact the man later in a nearby park after the gathering, police said.
It turned out the man had a misdemeanor warrant for theft out of Seattle, another out of Chehalis, and a felony warrant for probation violation out of Orgeon, police said.
Officers also found that he had a suspended license, though he admitted driving himself to the meeting, police said.
They took him into custody and said he would be transported back to Oregon.
