Police Blotter: Drunk and/or Disorderly

Disorderly Conduct
An intoxicated man, who believed his roommate was not keeping their stateroom as clean as required by their captain, moved his roommate's belongings into a common area and then threw a tantrum when he was chastised about his behavior. The captain, who did not wish to fire the inebriate, determined that a time-out was in order and arranged for the inebriate to stay elsewhere for the night.

[A man], 35 yoa, of Washington, was arrested for Driving under the Influence after he failed to yield to an ambulance that was traveling with lights and siren activated. [The man] also failed to stop for police officers until he arrived at the clinic, where he had hoped to visit an injured comrade.

Traffic Roads
Officer advised three men who were using a fishing buoy to play soccer in the roadway that though flat ground is a rare commodity in this community, the roadway does not constitute a viable option.

Assistance Rendered
Officer stopped a speeding driver and learned she was on her way to help an intoxicated friend who had cut himself while preparing food. She was unclear about the extent of the man's injuries. The officer responded to the residence and found that the inebriated and impolite man had already bandaged his wounded digit. The inebriate used language that made it quite clear that the officer was most unwelcome at his residence.

Traffic Crime
Caller reported a driver had nearly struck several vehicles on Salmon Way. An officer contacted the suspect driver, who appeared totally unaware of his very poor driving, and warned him to drive more carefully in the near future.

Suspicious Person/Activity
Business owner requested police assistance with a customer who believed he had purchased a faulty product and whose behavior was disruptive. The customer left after an officer provided him with information about how to properly activate his new equipment.

Driver One complained that Driver Two had stopped in the middle of the roadway and made threatening statements to him. Driver Two claimed that the Driver One and his passengers had cut him off and had then jeered and made rude gestures at him when he yelled at them. Both drivers were advised to behave like responsible adults.

Criminal Mischief
Two drunken crewman who had already been asked to leave the Harbor View Bar due to their inimical behavior returned to their vessel and engaged in repeated displays of machismo, strewing one another's belongings about a stateroom, punching one another, breaking sunglasses and agreeing to meet on the dock for a duel to settle their differences. Neither man wished to pursue charges against the other. The captain of the vessel agreed to deal with his two model employees in the morning, but was perturbed that neither of them would be spending the night in jail.

Good thing they didn't set up a volleyball net across the road!

I'm sure it's only because they didn't have one. :)
