A homeless 54 year-old Rome man, Robert Wayne Owens, was arrested this week after reports said he acted in a boisterous and tumultuous manner while at a store on Rockmart Road.

Customers told officers that Owens was scaring them with his behavior.

Police said that on the way to the jail, Owens told them that he had been smoking marijuana earlier in the day.

Authorities added that Owens is a wanted fugitive out of Alabama.

Owens is charged with public drunk and being a fugitive from justice.
