Let it all hang out Police pulled over a vehicle at the corner of Broadway and 10th Avenue North and the front-seat passenger told cops “he would need to vomit.” So the 22-year-old opened his door and staggered a short distance, but instead of puking, “He then exposed his penis and began to urinate, despite warnings of jail if he continued. He stated that he did not care. Suspect’s genitalia were in full view of the public at this time.” Due to his state of public intoxication and his display of public indecency, the suspect was arrested. The officer reported that the man “eventually did vomit in the backseat of my patrol car.”
Crazy about that nose candy A man and his son were arguing in a parked car when the father got out and flagged down police patrolling Dickerson Pike. “He stated that his son was going crazy and on drugs,” according to one of the officers, who said the suspect “kept getting out of the vehicle and yelling and cursing while I was talking with the father.” The 18-year-old “did appear to be high” and “admitted that he had sniffed cocaine that morning.” When asked to get out of the car, the suspect refused, forcing police to “physically extract him.” He then attempted “to kick officers and to kick the window of the car out,” and police had to “hobble” him to regain control. “The defendant stated he was going to give us more reasons to arrest him.” But before he had the chance, he was cuffed and booked for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Girl gone wild A manager of the Super 8 Motel on Brick Church Pike called police to report a woman who was “being very disorderly, screaming and yelling at people.” The suspect, who was not staying at the motel, had been asked to leave, but instead “refused and then jumped in the pool.” After taking a dip, the woman left the property, but returned a few minutes later after buying more alcohol. When police arrived, “she was obviously intoxicated and had two more beers in her hand that were unopened.” Her pseudo-spring break was cut short when she was booked for trespassing, disorderly conduct and public intoxication.
Cat fight An argument among neighbors turned into an all-out brawl when a woman attacked a mother and daughter. The suspect attempted to punch the mother in the face, and the woman’s daughter then stepped in and started taking swings. Police were called to the scene and, while interviewing all three women to determine the primary aggressor, the 34-year-old suspect screamed at her neighbors, “I’m going to whoop your ass!” She was promptly arrested and charged with assault.
Apartment 420 Officers responded to reports of “yelling, objects being thrown and bodies striking the walls” of an apartment. Upon arriving, police stood outside the apartment and briefly listened to the ruckus, which ended as soon as they knocked on the door. The apartment became silent and after “a long time” a woman finally opened the door and “police could see a glass pipe used to ingest marijuana” on the coffee table, “surrounded by seeds, stems and small green leafy substance, which are consistent with marijuana.” The couple living in the apartment consented to a search, and a subsequent sweep turned up a pack of rolling papers in the bedroom, a marijuana grow lab in the living room closet with two plants, and a grow lab under the kitchen sink with another four plants. The pair tried to talk their way out of trouble—the man by giving a false name—but, not surprisingly, the episode ended in buzz kill.
