Police Blotter & a Personal Note

First, the note. This blog has finally crossed the one-million hit mark; I still find it remarkable that anybody reads this drivel at all. Thank you.


And here's the Blotter:
Suspicious Person/Activity
Caller reported that the driver of a black pickup, parked near the South Channel Bridge, was attempting to push a female passenger out of the vehicle. An officer located a vehicle similar to that described, but found only a driver and no passenger. The driver denied that there had been anyone else in the vehicle.
Sounds like the plot of many a murder mystery...

Caller reported strong winds had left a barrel rolling, rolling, rolling, on East Broadway. An officer secured it off the roadway.
Thank you, Frankie Laine!

Criminal Mischief
Apartment-dweller discovered that someone had super-glued the valve caps on his vehicle tires, so that any attempt to remove the cap ripped the stem from the valve and caused the tire to deflate. One possible suspect was identified.

Welfare Check
Caller reported a quite inebriated man who had been staggering along the roadway had just fallen into a ditch. An officer responded to the area but determined that the red-sweatered inebriate had apparently already crawled out of the ditch to safety.
What drinking problem? He drinks ... he falls down ... no problem!

Three adults engaged in a swearing and shoving match after one man, who had put $30 in the jukebox, got mad at another man for increasing the volume of a televised NASCAR event.
But it's NASCAR, man!

Assistance Rendered
Caller reported a possibly suicidal crew member on his vessel. Officers responded and found a man who had been unable to sleep, had had a headache for days and was generally unable to reconcile himself to the Aleutians' famed gloomy skies and dark oceans. There was no indication the man was suicidal but medical care was requested for his other issues.

Caller reported a vehicle crawling up a hill and impeding traffic. An officer found the vehicle, now out of gas and stopped, and helped move the vehicle off the roadway.
... which is what the caller should have done.

Congrats, Rev. Paul! We all love your drivel - see how popular it is!

Was that car crawling on all fours?

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Chickenmom. And we'll assume that the car was on four tires since that's the norm around these parts. :)
