James John Meagher: Boynton Beach man arrested for fifth time in a year

A Boynton Beach man was arrested for the fifth time in a year after causing a disturbance Thursday at a bus stop while reeking of alcohol, police said.

James John Meagher, 50, was charged with disorderly intoxication after getting belligerent with police officers investigating a disturbance call at a Palm Tran bus stop in the 1900 block of South Federal Hwy., according to an arrest report filed by a Boynton Beach police officer.

Meagher was also arrested Sept. 20 and charged with indecent exposure after he allegedly stumbled drunk out of his doorway with his pants around his ankles, according to an arrest report.

Since November 2011, Meagher has been arrested five times, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. Four of those arrests resulted in disorderly intoxication charges.

The Sun Sentinel reported in September that Meagher has been arrested over 50 times since 1983.

Meagher was released from custody Thursday night.
