A Middlesboro man was recently behind bars at the Bell County Detention Center after the Middlesboro Police Department responded to a call of a man being passed out near the ARH Credit Union on Cumberland Avenue and 38th Street.

According to the arrest citation, upon arrival police found a male suspect passed out on the ground in a parking lot and EMS was notified due to the suspect being unresponsive to officers.
