Authorities in Virginia arrested a Stafford County man they say was intoxicated in public and in possession of drug paraphernalia after he trespassed several times at the same convenience store.

Officials say on December 15 they were called to a Wawa in Fredericksburg where staff told them 34-year-old Brett Simpson had been trespassing. Officers said they warned Simpson and asked him to leave.
