Police Blotter: They Didn't Mean To

Officers were flagged down and advised of a stolen rental vehicle. The vehicle was found at a local drinking establishment. The vehicle was found to have been mistakenly taken and not maliciously appropriated.
So ... if you take someone else's car, but you didn't mean to, then it's okay? (scratches head)
Drunk Disturbance
Officer saw three individuals in front of a local drinking establishment who appeared to be getting ready to engage in a pugilistic event. The officer intervened and sent the ruffians on their way.

Welfare Check
A 911 call was received from a caller who was unable to communicate in other then grunts, gasps, and heavy breathing. The 911 Dispatcher was able to track down the caller’s identity and location. Officers were dispatched to assist the extremely intoxicated caller who was found to have fallen.

Assistance Rendered
Officers responded to the Carl E. Moses dock for a disturbance vaguely described by participants as having something to do with a local girl. Neither of the men contacted provided any substantive information about their differences and seemed to have suddenly, upon police involvement, resolved all their problems.

A vehicle, reported stolen, was found at the residence of a person who intended to buy the vehicle from the registered owner. No charges were filed per the owner’s request.
So ... if you take someone else's car, but you mean to pay for it later ...
Assistance Rendered
Drunk reported that his brother stole his half-gallon of booze while he was being treated at the clinic. Officers found no half-gallon bottles, full or otherwise, in the house and advised the drunk to look for his liquor in the morning.

Drunk Disturbance
Airline staff requested assistance with an inebriated, would-be passenger who was upset about not being allowed on his flight. The inebriate eventually comprehended that he could get an alternative flight once he was sober.

Assistance Rendered
Officers responded to a request first for help with a passenger who had not paid his taxi fare, and then to a report that said passenger had fallen into the water while climbing onto his boat. The passenger was out of the water and in his galley by the time officers arrived, and declined any medical care. He then paid for the taxi ride.

Lost Property
Mother asked for help retrieving her purse, which had been taken to Anchorage by her daughter. An officer contacted Anchorage Airport police, who in turn contacted the daughter on arrival and made arrangements for the purse's return.
So ... if you take someone else's purse ...

All I can say is, those officers must have the wisdom of Solomon, and the patience of Job.
