Police refuse man’s request

WESTFIELD – A city man who came to the police station early Wednesday morning with a simple request was denied.
City police report that a resident came to the station at 2:37 a.m. yesterday and asked if he could “stay in the cell block.”
Sgt. Michael Kane reports the man was advised of alternative lodging options but asked how he could “stay in the cell block.”
When the man was told that the cells are reserved for persons arrested he threatened to commit a crime so he could be arrested, Kane reports, but was told again that he could not stay in a cell.
When he claimed to be suicidal Kane offered to call for an ambulance but the man left the station after saying “I ain’t paying for an ambulance.”
