“The Devil is making me act this way.”  That is the claim of a man who was walking up and down Temple Street in Hinton yelling at passing cars.

George Henry Ruff, 28, was arrested at around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 18th, 2018.  He is facing charges of public intoxication, obstruction and disorderly conduct.

According to the criminal complaint, when police responded to the call, Ruff walked away and would not follow instructions from the officer.

When they asked if Ruff had been drinking or doing drugs, that is when Ruff responded that the Devil was making him act that way.

Ruff is being held in the Southern Regional Jail on a $1,000 cash only bond.
