Thursday Police Blotter: Unkind Words

Harassment ~ Taxi Driver 1 whined about Taxi Driver 2 calling her bad names. Taxi Driver 2 said Taxi Driver 1 started it, and Taxi Driver 1 always tattles to police.

Theft ~ A shoplifter, this one caught in the act, was discovered after he attempted to steal a sweatshirt by simply placing it over his own clothing. A review of security footage showed that a 28 yo male, had taken several additional items totaling approximately $800. The man, who was intoxicated, was arrested on charges of Theft II.

Domestic Disturbance ~ A man told officers he felt sure he was going to die because his roommate had threatened to “deal with” him after they got into an argument, and worse yet, kept a screwdriver by his bed. The roommate, who was upset because the other room occupant was white, was dirty and kept wiping boogers on the shower walls, explained that he was from southern California. The situation was resolved when the two men were assigned to separate rooms per corporate security.

MVA Damage ~Caller reported some motorists, possibly intoxicated, had driven their vehicle into a ditch on Captain’s Bay Road. Officers responded and found the vehicle completely disabled from what appeared to be a broken axle. The occupants were not impaired but were having a great deal of difficulty walking on the slick, icy surface of the roadway.

Disorderly Conduct ~ A man with whom an officer was speaking regarding a fracas in front of a bar, punched another man in the eye when the man approached him and the officer. Further investigation indicated that he had already struck, or at least attempted to strike, two other people in the moments preceding police intervention. The man, 37 yoa, was arrested on charges of Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest.

Harassment ~ A woman reported that a coworker had said unkind things to her, and asked that an officer tell the coworker to stop. An officer contacted the coworker, who apologized for having hurt the woman’s feelings and said he would never, ever talk to her again.

LOL, I'm surprised ANYBODY up there will talk to anybody else...

Small town problems, but real problems for the LEOs dealing with them.

NFO - it does seem like a puzzlement, sometimes. :)

WSF - absolutely. It's one thing to bust someone; another thing entirely to see them every day thereafter, around town.

LOL - they get funnier each week!

Glad you like 'em, Chickenmom. Most of what's in the Blotter is routine stuff (alarms, people reporting lost items, etc), but the funny things make it worth checking out. :)
