27-year-old Rodrick Hopkins was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication after he accused the police of disrespecting his wife while they attempted to arrest someone else.
On November 7th, Memphis Police Officer Martin arrived at 2799 Getwell Road in response to a complaint call. As Officer Martin spoke with the caller, Cameron Conwell’s mother, he noted that Rodrick Hopkins approached him.
Officer Martin reported Hopkins accused him of disrespecting his wife and when he tried to calm him down, he started causing a loud disturbance. The officer stated he created such a disturbance that other residents came outside their apartments to figure out what was happening. Per the report, a strong odor of alcohol was emitting from Hopkins and he exhibited slurred speech and red, watery eyes.
Rodrick Hopkins was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication. He was later released on his own recognizance.
