GENEVA – A man who tore up and threw down a ticket for public intoxication – and swore at police – received a second ticket for littering, Geneva police reports show.

Geneva police were called to the 600 block of Westfield Course at 2:18 a.m. June 30 regarding an intoxicated person, reports stated.

The car had miscellaneous clothing, garbage and an open container of Spaghetti-O’s in the center console cup holder, reports stated.
