JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — A Tennessee man is behind bars after police said he attempted to steal a cab that officers had called for him because he was intoxicated. An infant was in the vehicle at the time, authorities added.
According to WJHL, the incident occurred shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday outside Clark Street Baptist Church in Johnson City. Officers responded to a domestic disturbance call and found Travis W. Dulaney, 37, of Johnson City, pushing a stroller with a 3-month-old baby inside, Johnson City police said in a news release.
