I come in off my weekend and learn the next three weekends are stepped up DWI enforcement. We're told to be attentive. That first night I managed to catch an illegal alien driving on the wrong side of the road drunk.
An officer is sitting in the parking lot of a cantina. He spots a man stumbling drunk through the parking lot almost getting hit by a car. The officer goes to stop the man (another illegal alien) who turns and attacks the officer. Fortunately the officer wasn't hurt and the man is subdued and arrested.
911 gets a disturbing call. A woman dumps her boyfriend over the phone. Not able to handle it he shoots himself where she can hear it. Now she will have to live with that memory for the rest of her life.
For the past year we've had a bulletin about being on the look out for a serial arsonist. Apparently he got caught starting another fire and chased by officers. He ran onto a highway overpass and looked back then jumped off plunging himself to his death.
We were all watching the news when Liberty County sheriff's deputies received a tip from a psychic saying there were numerous dismembered bodies buried on a rural property. After finally obtaining a search warrant (though I wonder how a tip from a psychic would convince a judge to sign off on a warrant) they found nothing resembling Rob Zombie's house of 1000 corpses. On camera they say they had to investigate, in private I'm sure they are fuming about the public embarrassment.
In the span of a week I made two crashed where a car lost control and went into a residence. Fortunately nobody was hurt and amazingly neither driver was drunk.
