He refused to submit to field sobriety testing and was placed under arrest for DUI. Police then took Flagg to Phoenixville Hospital, where he again refused to submit to any testing.

He was later taken to the station where, according to police, he urinated on the wall of the cell block hallway, and again in the holding cell.
