Alert: Police Blotter:

Drunk Woman

On Wednesday, August 31, at 11:35 p.m., officers went to the 200 block of Washington Street because they had received a report of a domestic violence incident. When they arrived they listened at the door and clearly heard a man and a woman involved in a heated argument. As the officers listened they deduced that, at least from the outside, that it was the woman who was the aggressor, the woman who was shouting the most, and yes, quite possibly the woman who had started the whole unfavorable discourse in the first place.

After getting a picture of the scene, based upon aural evidence, the cops knocked on the door and requested permission to enter. The woman refused and told the cops to leave, most likely in a fashion that was less than polite. Officers then spoke through the door to the man and asked him if he could open the door. He told them that he could not because the woman was standing in front of the door preventing him from opening it. The officers then informed the woman that they were about to crash the door in, and she must have had a moment of clarity because she opened it at that point.

The cops investigated and discovered what had happened earlier that evening: Apparently, the woman had returned home in an intoxicated state, and had verbally set about the man (her boyfriend), accusing him of seeing other woman. The man denied this accusation, and told the woman that he was going to bed (he apparently told the cops that this was primarily in order to avoid the drunk girlfriend). The woman followed him, all the while continuing to shout at him. The man then decided to leave the apartment altogether in order to get away from his boozed-up girlfriend, but she was having none of this common sense approach, and so stopped him from doing so. She began to push him backwards repeatedly. It was then that the man had called the cops, but had been forced to hang-up prematurely by the continuing mind-altered antics of his “love partner.”

Based upon all of the evidence present (drunk woman, drunk woman shouting, drunk woman refusal to open the door, the testimony of the boyfriend etc.), the cops arrested this 53-year-old woman and charged her with false imprisonment and domestic violence. Her bail is $50,000.

He Had Power In His Pants

On Friday, September 3, at 5:36 p.m., officers went to the Rite-Aid store at the 1300 block of Wilshire regarding a suspected thief that was in custody at the store. When they arrived they were told by the sore personnel that this guy had entered the store, walked around a bit, and then put eight containers of Duracell batteries into his pants. This act sparked the interest of the store personnel, who then observed him more closely. This guy then left the store without paying. The store personnel were immediately energized into running outside to apprehend this man, and placed him under citizen’s arrest. He complied without resisting, thus avoiding a charge of battery. The cops took over, arrested this 51-year-old man of Inglewood, and charged him with petty theft with a prior conviction, and parole violation, he was not eligible for bail.

He Was Just Scraping By

On Saturday, September 4, at 4:21 a.m., officers went to the 100 block of San Vicente regarding a report of a traffic collision. Upon arrival they noticed that two parked vehicles had been hit, but there was no hitting-vehicle present at the scene. What was at the scene however was a tire; a tire that the cops immediately realized must have come from the vehicle that had caused the material carnage. They also noticed some scrape marks on the road that they followed.

These scrape marks led the cops to the suspect, and his vehicle, that was stationary, and partially blocking the number three lane at the junction of Pacific Coast Highway and Chautauqua. The suspect told the cops that he had had a tire blow out on his vehicle and that is why he was there. The cops realized that the only thing that was blown out was the validity of his story, and also that the guy was under the influence of alcohol. Officers arrested the 24-year-old man of Los Angeles for driving under the influence, hit and run, and driving without a license. His bail is $25,000.
