Police Disambiguate Bi-Modal Bibulator – October 24, 2011
• Friday, August 16 1:09 a.m. Management at a Valley West budget motel had some quibbles with the guest in Room 122. One was the brain-blasting music emanating from his room, the other was the axe with which he greeted the manager at his door when asked to turn it down. Police stood by as he was directed to leave.
• Saturday, August 17 8:41 a.m. A woman sat at Blakeslee Avenue and Q Street with a dog, far from the rich muttering grounds downtown and carrying on a dialogue with herself about hating California. Police evaluated her for mental health issues and found that while she was somewhat unwell, she wasn’t a danger to herself or others. She moved along.
11:08 p.m. A man in full camouflage dress stood in front of the bars on Tavern Row, fiiring a pellet gun into the ground. Yeah, that’s not really necessary.
• Sunday, September 18 12:06 a.m.
Drifted around Ninth and H
Their source never found
8:23 a.m. Somewhere near California and Terrace avenues, a man and woman were heard arguing. The woman was saying things like, “I am just going to kill myself if this is what life is about,” and yelling about a speed bump. Police found the two sitting in the roadway near a broken beer bottle, and when the mentally disturbed woman became violent, she was taken into custody.
2:19 p.m. A man stole mouthwash and deoderant from a downtown store.
4:46 p.m. A woman gardening on St. Louis Road said she could smell something seriously dead in the area. An officer found the remains of a dog on the railroad tracks, and took it to the Corp Yard for disposal.
8:03 p.m. There was something of a standoff between two parents in a Valley West parking lot. They were there for a child custody exchange, but refused to move close enough to each other to carry out the kid-handoff.
• Monday, September 19 5:46 a.m. A man was passed out hanging halfway out of his car at Sixth and G streets. Police found him severely blotto and arrested both halves.
12:03 p.m. A man in a Seventh Street mobile home park was reported sleeping in a “goat cart.” He was sent on his way.
12:08 p.m. A man was reported hitting buildings with his hands and with bottles on Ninth Street. He was sent along.
1:29 p.m. A 12th Street business employee said someone had brought in a smartphone which had been found in the street. It was loaded with photos and texts depicting drug trafficking and graffiti tagging, plus information on the pickup and delivery of drugs. Police picked up the phone.
5:09 p.m. A man outside a 10th Street restaurant was feisty with passersby and put on a show of “shadow karate-ing things.” He supposedly also had “bear mace” in his possession.” The restaurant operator alerted the man that if he entered the property, he would hit him with a 2×4. That helped motivate the man to motate.
9:57 p.m. Some sort of egg-and-mustard mixture was sloppily slathered on the wall of a Valley East Boulevard apartment.
