A Sign Of The Times.
Wednesday, December 16, 1:40 p.m. Officers heard about an assault with a deadly weapon at the 2300 block of Main Street, and so went there to check it out. When they arrived, they spoke to some witnesses who pointed out the victims in this case. The cops then spoke to these victims who explained that they had been walking in a southbound direction on Main Street whilst the suspect was walking northbound (a collision course). As they approached each other the suspect pushed one of the victims. This prompted another victim to remonstrate with the suspect about this pushing incident, and the suspect told this victim that he had pushed the victim because he was convinced that the first victim had been talking about him, and on top of that had also pointed at him (“Hey, that guy over there is really cool,” possibly?). The suspect then decided to reach down to his sock and remove the knife that was stored there (that’s normal, right?). The victim needed a sign, and found a metal one, just in time, and so used it as a shield. The suspect tried to stab the victim a number of times, but the sign prevailed, and the suspect departed the scene. Officers went in search of the White, 26-year-old male, and located him a short distance away. They arrested him, and booked him for assault with a deadly weapon. His bail was $30,000.
Toss A Coin.
Wednesday, December 16, 8 p.m. Here is what happened at the 1100 block of Broadway, on the above date, at the above time. A group of people was dining on a patio area, enjoying the evening when all of a sudden they heard someone yelling anti-Semitic remarks at them. One of the diners’ glasses then flew off, the result of having been struck by an object thrown by the yeller, it appeared. The diners then discovered that the yeller was throwing coins at them (must have money to throw away). The cops were called, and the cops came, and located this money throwing yeller a short distance away. The suspect, a 49-year old White male, with no fixed abode, was taken into custody, and booked for assault with a weapon (coins) likely to produce great bodily injury, injury to a person based on perception of race or religion, resisting arrest, public intoxication, and probation violation. His bail is $30,000.00 (perhaps he was a few coins short of making bail?).
It’s My Party.
Saturday, December 19, 12:04 a.m. Officers went to attend a party at the 2200 block of 16th Street at the above time, on the above date, not because they wanted to chill, and have fun, but in the course of their duty. They had been called because some uninvited guests were attempting to “crash” this party. The officers began to speak with these “gatecrashers,” and as they were doing so they sharply noticed someone sneakily trying to conceal something. The officers made a point of searching this guy, and found that he was trying to hide a hypodermic needle. This chap did not have any form of medical condition that necessitated the use of such a device, and so the cops arrested this White, 32 year old for possession of a hypodermic needle. Bail: $250.00
