Thursday, March 11, 9:17 p.m. Officers were called to the 200 block of Beach Street in regard to a woman getting too close to a man, in violation of a restraining order that the man had taken out in order to prevent this woman from doing exactly that. The cops arrived and discovered this violating female a short distance away. The cops arrested the 33-year-old female transient for violating the restraining order and also for a probation violation, thus allowing the man to feel safe again. Her bail: $20,000.
Friday, March 12, 8:15 p.m. Officers were driving in front of Santa Monica City Hall when they saw and heard a man yelling and cursing. The officers began to park their cop car, and as they did they witnessed this yelling curser run-up to another vehicle that had just parked. As the driver was exiting the car, this curser asked him if he would care to partake in a fight. The curser then adopted a fighting stance (you know, like they do in the movies) and then appeared to begin punching the innocent victim. The cops (who were in plain clothes) identified themselves and arrested this (surprised?) curser. The curser then thought that it would be good judgment to challenge these cops to a fight, so he did. It turned out to be bad judgment because the cops cuffed him and took this 41-year-old homeless curser to jail for challenging people to a fight in a public space. Bail: Ten K.
Saturday, March 13, 8:05 p.m. Officers received a call to investigate a stalking incident, and so went there to investigate as requested. The cops saw the stalker in the area of Ocean Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard, and approached him. The cops asked him what his name was, to which he replied, “Billy The Kid.” The cops then asked for some ID, and discovered that he had a driver’s license belonging to a woman (Billie Kidd?). Upon questioning, “Billy” did not know whose license this was, or where, or how he had obtained it. Officers used police skills to discover the true identity of this guy (turned out he was not the famed Western outlaw), and also discovered that he was on parole, and wanted in another state. The cops rounded this guy up, and they all moseyed down to the jailhouse where this varmint was charged with giving false information to a police officer and appropriation of lost property. He was not eligible for bail. Incidentally, there were no reports that day of men fighting on the roof of a moving train.
