Two Halves Make An Argument.
Tuesday, July 7, 11:01 p.m. Officers of The Santa Monica Police Department received a report of two individuals arguing rigorously from within a residence located in the 1100 block of 17th Street and so they went to the scene. When they arrived, they could clearly hear the voices of one male and one female engaged in a loud and vociferous argument. The officers entered the residence and discovered that the female half had thrown a beverage of some kind at the male half. The male half had apparently attempted to exit the residence but had been pushed to the ground by the female half that had resulted in a minor injury to his chest. The female half, who was white and 21 years old, was subsequently arrested for inflicting the injury upon the male half.
Thursday, July 9, 9:37 a.m. Officers of The Santa Monica College witnessed a vehicle that failed to stop at a number of stop signs, and so stopped said vehicle. They then began to chat with the driver, a 22 year old male Asian fellow, and noticed a very strong odor of marijuana (a preparation made from the dried flower clusters and leaves of the cannabis plant, usually smoked or eaten to induce euphoria) as well as a 4.5 oz of OC (or pepper, from Oleoresin Capsicum) spray, in contravention of the California law that limits members of the public to a maximum of 2.5 ounces. This man was arrested for that offense, as well as possession of marijuana, and some other vehicle code violations. It did not appear to be a very “euphoric” day for him, one assumes.
Transient Attacks Two People.
Friday, July 10, 3:55 p.m. Officers heard about a fight that was in progress involving three people and taking place in the area of 5th Street and Colorado Boulevard, and so went there. When they arrived they spoke with two people who they deemed were the victims in this altercation. They learned that these victims had been walking eastbound whilst the suspect had been walking westbound and mumbling to himself (walking the mumble?). The victims had stepped aside in order to allow this gentleman unfettered right of passage. However, instead of walking past them, this self-chatting-chap decided to hit one of them, and grab that victim’s baseball cap! As this suspect was walking away the other victim pushed the suspect to the ground, and retrieved the baseball cap. At that point the suspect then attempted to strike that second victim, but then decided to run off. The officers caught this suspect, a 20-year-old African American transient, a short distance away, and arrested him. He was charged with robbery, and a parole violation.
