Lufkin, Texas (KETK) — Lufkin police arrested a man early Tuesday morning after he was found shadow boxing in the street while allegedly high on PCP.
According to Sergeant David Casper, at around 1:30 a.m., police were dispatched to the 400 block of South Third Street. A caller had stated her boyfriend was smoking "wet" and she was afraid he was going to get hit by a vehicle in the road.
