Somehow a man wound up in his pool and drowned. Be interesting to find out why the hell he was out by his pool that time of night.
Despite the cold weather we tend to find more drunk drivers. I guess drunks think the extreme cold is the best time to drive. The other night a speeding drunk caused a major crash with about 5 cars sending nearly a dozen people to the hospital. At first he was defiant and refused to talk. However later at the hospital when we got a search warrant for his blood the gravity of the situation hit him. I made sure to point out how many people he sent to the hospital. That seemed to have the most effect on his attitude.
Tonight a drunk driver ran his car up into someone's yard and dug a rut trying to drive off. He failed and went to jail.
About a year ago I heard of a guy who was living with an elderly lady. People kept telling me that he was taking advantage of her and stealing her money. One night we made a call and I met the guy for myself. My gut feeling was this guy was a manipulator. I didn't believe for a second that he actually had any concern for the lady aside from her bank account. However we couldn't do anything about it aside from respond to the many disturbances involving him and people who genuinely were concerned for the elderly lady. I heard many officers wish they could put him in jail. Won't they be green with envy when they found out he screwed up. He tried to manipulate a mentally disabled woman into getting a cell phone account on her name. An officer investigated but couldn't find enough evidence for a charge. Unfortunately the guy got the officer's cell phone number and began harassing her with text messages and phone calls. So I filed harassment charges on him and hopefully tomorrow I get to hunt for his butt!
