Officers responded Saturday to a report of a suspicious man parked on Market Street, picking up items from the floor of his vehicle and eating them. At first the man identified himself incorrectly, giving his brother's birth date, but officers determined he was Nicholas A. Prendes, 25, Iowa Street, Wellsville. He did not know whose vehicle he was in, but police found it was registered to his mother. He had blood on his pants but had no idea how it had gotten there, but told officers he might be acting oddly because someone may have put something in his drink. After being arrested for public intoxication, Prendes was taken to the police station, where he began taking off his clothing, saying he was hot. Officers said his face became red and splotchy. His mother told officers this happens often to her son. He was released to his mother.
