Police responded to a call about a man attempting to break into a house and found the perp “defecating in the yard of the residence.” The 28-year-old suspect explained to officers he had been drinking all day and just wanted to use the bathroom, but settled for the front lawn when he couldn’t gain entry into the house. When that excuse didn’t work, the defendant became irate as he was cuffed for public indecency, public intoxication and trespassing. According to one arresting officer, “The suspect was very uncooperative with me, claiming he was going to beat me and my family down if he saw us in Nashville.”
A truckload of fun
An officer patrolling Shelby Park just before midnight observed a couple having sex in the front seat of a Nissan pickup truck. When the male suspect saw the flashing lights and attempted to pull up his pants, police say a .40-caliber handgun fell out of his pocket. The 37-year-old perp surrendered without incident and assured the cop he had nothing else on him. By “nothing,” he apparently meant a second handgun, four knives, two bottles of beer, one marijuana pipe and a small amount of marijuana. The suspect was booked for indecent exposure, drug possession and weapons charges.
Sweet tooth with a taste for blood
An argument over a piece of birthday cake turned violent when a 27-year-old woman retrieved a knife from the kitchen and confronted her boyfriend, who had stepped outside in an effort to end the dispute over the last piece of dessert. The suspect chased her man back into the house, where she “grabbed the victim’s neck and bit him on his left side,” according to police, who charged the woman with aggravated assault. A month earlier, officers arrested the same woman after she stabbed the same victim in the hand with a steak knife and then bit him on the forehead.
