A roundup of unusual
ENGLEWOOD – Oct. 18: An officer observed two males trying to cross the street near the American Legion, 200 W. National Road.
They were not in a crosswalk and one subject signaled for the officer to stop, then asked for a ride to Bolts Sports Bar on South Main Street.
The officer asked why they needed a ride, and the subject said they’d been at another bar, lost track of time and missed the bus to Bolts. He also said he didn’t feel like walking in the cold. The subject said he was just buzzed and needed a ride to the bar.
The officer advised him the police department was not a taxi service and he needed to walk to the bar.
The subject became argumentative and was arrested on a charge of public intoxication.
His friend was released at the scene.
While en route to jail, the subject made comments, including that he would have his attorney, Jon Rion, take care of everything.
Another satisfied customer of Jon Rion. Jon, you can’t buy this kind of publicity!
Woman’s ignorance about public conduct earns her a trip to jail
DAYTON – Oct. 26: An officer patrolling the North Main Street and Maylan Avenue area observed a female carrying a beer and staggering. The officer circled around.
The subject was leaning against a wall with her pants down, urinating on the sidewalk. Her speech was slurred and although the beer she had wasn’t opened, she said she drank earlier and noted she didn’t know it was illegal to “pee on the side of a building.” She was advised that it was illegal and was taken to jail for disorderly conduct.
Just a reminder to anyone interested…if the place you are relieving yourself does not have 4 walls…it is probably illegal! I guess she didn’t know the rules. There are a lot of people that do not know this rule! I have personally met quite a few of them. I am thinking that we need a PSA or something about public urination!

A roundup of unusual
ENGLEWOOD – Oct. 11: Officers heard loud karaoke singing coming from an unattached garage while responding to a loud music complaint on Englewood Drive.
The officers were about 30 feet from the garage.
They approached and could see through a glass door that a male was singing into a microphone.
When they knocked they heard a male say, “It’s the cops, I bet!”
A male, identified as the resident, opened the garage door and was advised of the complaint.
He said his neighbors must be upset with him because they keep calling the police when he has people over.
The resident was issued a summons for playing loud music. He was ordered to stop the loud music for the night or further action would be taken.
It’s Friday. You are hanging out in your garage with some buddies singing Karaoke? I really wished they would have reported his set list…..
Son allegedly attacks mom in MySpace altercation
HAYDEN, Idaho – An 18-year-old Hayden, Idaho, man was accused of stabbing his mother after she forbade him to use the Internet social networking site MySpace. The man was arrested last week for investigation of aggravated assault after his mother said he cut her wrist.
The mother said she confronted her 6-foot-2, 320-pound son, after which he became aggravated and packed his belongings to leave their home.
Police said he pulled a black and silver knife from his pocket as his mother tried to take his cellular telephone charger from him.
The man rode off on his bicycle but was later detained by police.
He was released from Kootenai County Jail on Monday.
Another MySpace tragedy. Why don’t we hear about successful people having these kinds of problems. Dude, if you are an adult and living at your parents home and cannot get off the MySpace, and have to ride a bike everywhere, do a little internal inventory. I mean, you stabbed your mom over MySpace when you are living in HerSpace……Your 6’2″ and 320, go play football or be a bouncer or something And stop stabbing your mother.
He was intoxicated, argumentative and quite hungry, too

A roundup of unusual items from area police departments:
Oct. 24: An intoxicated male was reported staggering across four lanes of traffic in the 1000 block of West Main Street.
The subject was cordial and jovial when officers located him. He stuffed two small doughnuts he’d just purchased into his mouth and the odor of alcohol was easily detected.
When asked for his ID, the subject stated, “Sure! I’ve been drinking a lot, and I’m underage! Here you go! You guys are awesome!”
He handed the officer his entire wallet and then nearly fell over. The 20-year-old said he drank “a whole lot” and that he was “wasted.”
When an officer removed a bottle of Kamchatka vodka from the subject’s back pocket, he stated, “Yep, that’s mine, too!”
He then spit out a large wad of doughnut, as well as a cigarette he’d been chewing along with the doughnut.
He was arrested for underage consumption, disorderly conduct and an open container. His demeanor changed while en route to jail and he banged his head twice against the partition in the cruiser, yelling for the pretzels he had purchased.
Dude was eating a cigarette.’ Nuff said.
He’s the doggone maintenance man, emergency or not

A roundup of unusual items
VANDALIA – Sept. 22: Emergency vehicles were at the scene of a gas leak at an apartment on Winding Hollow Trail when a male drove past them and exited his truck.
The subject was told twice to move his vehicle. Both times he replied that he was maintenance.
An officer explained to the subject that he couldn’t drive into the middle of an emergency scene. He was instructed to park and stay in his vehicle unless the fire chief told him otherwise.
The subject pulled into a parking spot, got out when the officer’s back was turned, then walked to the apartment with the gas leak.
The engine crew was standing outside, calibrating the meter and preparing to enter when the subject walked past the firefighters and entered, ignoring orders to stop. The subject did exit the apartment after being ordered to do so. He was issued a summons for misconduct at an emergency.
He is a maintenance man. A Dedicated maintenance man…let him through! How many times has a maintenance man been called for a leak and you do not see him for over an hour ” ’cause Dukes Of Hazzards was on!” ? He should get a medal and a raise not a summons.
