Not much in the local paper's crime column this past week. Most of the problems dealt with drivers being stopped, then being arrested on outstanding warrants. Or fleeing a traffic stop and then being arrested for DUI, drugs and/or other offenses. One encounter did kind of stand out though.
Seems a woman called police about a man who'd sold her some crack cocaine. He then threw a beer at her. She also complained he owed her some money for personal favors.
Hmmm. Wonder what they were.
When police arrested her for possession of cocaine, she managed to escape her (double-locked!) handcuffs and flee.
Must have been related to Houdini!
But, alas for her, she was recaptured. Then she was taken in for booking after a side trip to the emergency room to be checked out for injuries incurred while fleeing. Or maybe it was injuries from the thrown beer. That was a little unclear.
Personally, I suspect she was sufferings from delusions of innocence!
Ah, goodness. The local police have so much to put up with. Although I suspect they do get a few laughs now and then.
