Frequent flyer: suspect apparently high and removing clothing on Orange streets

Police in Orange arrested 39-year-old Jacque Demont Robinson for public intoxication on Dec. 19, his second time behind bars within a month having previously been arrested Nov. 25 for suspected possession of a controlled substance in the form of a "wet" cigarette - a cigarette dipped in PCP. This time, the responding officer reports Robinson seemed to be high on the drug again - blankly staring, removing clothing and reeking of "acetone," a chemical smell often associated with the toxic intoxicant PCP.

At about 11:30 p.m., Officer Nicholas Medina responded to a report that a man was removing clothing as he was walked down the roadway in the 1400 block of 16th Street in Orange. As he searched the area, he observed a shirtless subject, later identified as Robinson, walking east on Hart Street towards 15th Street near Walgreens. Medina said he attempted to initiate contact with Robinson numerous times to no avail. He reported Robinson "had a blank stare" and apparently "didn't comprehend" what the officer was saying. Medina suspected PCP.

Although the suspect denied using drugs, Medina said there were multiple clues Robinson had been using PCP - slightly slurred speech, constricted pupils, and chemical smell emitting from his person. Medina arrested Robinson for public intoxication and took him to jail after receiving medical clearance from a local hospital.

Besides his two recent PCP-related arrests in Orange, Robinson, aka Lil' Fourth, has a fairly long criminal history including a misdemeanor conviction for marijuana in Beaumont, a felony conviction for burglary in Orange, a misdemeanor conviction for possession of a controlled substance in Orange, and convictions for familial assault, evading arrest, criminal mischief and criminal trespass.
