Twenty-three-year-old David Edmondson told police he intended to walk from Tobyhanna to New Jersey, but instead found himself transported to the Monroe County Correctional Facility.
The incident happened at 11:20 p.m. Saturday at Brookside Bar on Main Street in Tobyhanna, according to Pocono Mountain Regional Police.
Police responding to the report of a fight in the parking lot encountered Edmondson, whom police say was intoxicated. While police were interviewing him, he became disorderly and threatened to assault another person at the scene.
Edmondson, who resides in Tobyhanna, then advised police he was walking to New Jersey and began to walk south on Main Street "in the middle of the roadway."
He was taken into custody and charged with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
