Suspect Behavior 

A man who had a few too many drinks passed out in front of a storefront on lower Broadway and, when police told him to wake up, responded by yelling “fuck you, I’m asleep.”
Somebody needs a nap A man who had a few too many drinks passed out in front of a storefront on lower Broadway and, when police told him to wake up, responded by yelling “fuck you, I’m asleep.” The officer says he again “asked him politely” to move to a different location, at which point the obviously annoyed suspect responded with another “fuck you” before rolling back over to resume his snooze. The 51-year-old perp then was handcuffed and placed in the police cruiser, where the cop said he continued to respond with “ ‘fuck you’ whenever I would ask him questions.” Love bites A marital quarrel turned violent last week when a woman “bit her husband on the arm, causing a visible mark.” Police responded to the couple’s Cleveland Park home and told the wife she was under arrest for domestic assault, prompting the woman to dart out the front door and run to a neighbor’s house where she “was unable to get inside before being caught.” As the suspect, 24, was handcuffed, she made another unsuccessful escape attempt and then tried to kick her husband as police held her back. The tirade continued in the backseat of the patrol car, where the suspect repeatedly “kicked the rear driver side window causing the glass to be moved.” Just cruising in a borrowed Caddy…and selling some crack Police pulled over a man driving a stolen Cadillac last week, and the female passenger admitted to officers she “knew something was wrong” when her boyfriend paid only $750 for the car. “She knew that the ‘seller’ did not actually own the car and that the price was not near what the car is worth,” police report, but she didn’t bother to question the bargain buy. A search of the two suspects led to the discovery of 8 grams of cocaine hidden in the waistband of the woman’s pants and 14 grams of crack tucked into her bra. When asked about the stash of narcotics in her underclothes, the female suspect, 25, said she knew she “shouldn’t be selling drugs,” but explained she had to do it to support herself. That’s my story, but I’m not sticking to it A man caught wheeling a city-owned residential trash can down the street first told police he found the can on the side of the road, but then changed his story to say he spotted it turned over in an alley and decided to borrow it. Making matters even more suspicious, the cops opened the lid to find stereo equipment, including a large speaker box, two subwoofers and an amplifier, in the garbage can. “The suspect had little info on how he retrieved the speakers,” according to police. At first he said he bought the speakers from someone who lives on Buchanan Street, and that he was just using the trash can to transport them. Then he claimed he was taking the equipment back from someone named Ronnie, whom had had loaned it to a year ago. Unable to come up with a convincing story, the 36-year-old perp was arrested and charged with theft. All items in Suspect Behavior are taken from actual Metro police arrest reports and affidavits.
