A car is spotted racing up a neighborhood street running stop signs. An officer tries to stop the car yet it does not stop. The car looses control and drives into a yard then into the back of a wrecker truck. The driver is a teenage brat with marijuana.

A woman calls 911 reporting a home invasion. When all is said and done turned out to be another teenage brat sneaking in to see his girlfriend.

A drunk gets a flat tire and tries to change it while still drinking his beer. He didn't seem to care when he got arrested.

We all shuddered at the news of the fellow officer who was killed this morning. He was working a fatal accident when a drunk driver got through the barricade and struck and killed the officer. Rest in peace brother.

Some calls are just too good not to document. This one will fall in the category of funny stuff most people will never know. A call goes out that a male was roped and gagged and forced into a car. The caller trails the vehicle as officers race to catch up. Officers finally find the vehicle in a parking lot and swarm on it commando style. Sure enough there is an intoxicated male bound and gagged in the car. However he was drunk and refusing to leave the bar so his family came and got him. Since the drunk refused to listen to his loving family they jumped him and tied up. I love it! I forgot to ask if they left the drunk tied up or made the family untie him before they let everyone go.
I saw a woman sitting by herself in a funeral home parking lot around midnight. Okay kinda erie. I pull into the lot to check on her and she stumbles up and complains about her loser, convict boyfriend in heavily slurred speech. I felt a little sorry for her so I tried calling someone to come get her. Even though she was getting sarcastic and condescending. If you're drunk and the nice police officer tells you that you should clear your head and realize the officer controls your destiny you should tone the attitude. Long story short I try to find someone to get her but I got hung up on. So sad I arrest her for public intoxication.

Then I leave there and a possible kidnapping call goes out. I'm the closest unit so I hurry up. As I arrive I see the suspect vehicle getting on the freeway. I rush and catch up to the car. After a classic felony stop we learn it's two drunks fighting about who is more sober to drive. He is also found with a prohibited weapon and hydrocodone so he gets arrested and she goes to the drunk tank for the night.

It's quiet for the next few hours. I'm eating dinner and tolerating the manager's/cook's teasing then she tells me about a guy who walked out on his tab last week. I mail him a citation for theft of service.

It's the end of the night and I'm on my way home when I find a guy passed out in a car. I stop in my personal car and ask for a unit to check by. It's shift change so I hear crickets. Finally someone answers up and arrives. The drunk tells me he is an airborne ranger about to go back over seas. Despite my immense respect for military personnel I'm not satisfied he gave me his correct name. I run him and nothing matches. I say "f*** it" and arrest him for public intoxication. Sure enough I find his license and sure enough he gave me a fake name. I'm guessing he lied about being active military.

I was bored last night. I drove through business strips, onto roof top garages, into apartment complexes and nothing! This is a slow cycle. Sooner or later things well get hopping again.


A man retaliated against another man by beating him up and bashing his car. He was found by officers hiding in an apartment complex and took off running. He didn't make it far before he was caught.

A teenage gang banger on probation snuck out of the house and came back a few hours later. His parents were upset so they knocked the hell out of him of a little. He calls claiming abuse. The DA wasn't going to touch that one.

I was rather surprised to be going down the street and come face to face with a confused woman going the wrong way. Amazingly enough she wasn't drunk, just easily confused.

A woman taunts medics and police from inside her house. She dares them to come get without a warrant then starts slicing her wrists in view of the emergency workers. Needless to say they kick in the door and drag her to the hospital.
