A drunk gets into the wrong car trying to start it. He calls police yet runs when they arrive. He is caught and arrested. At the jail he acts up and throws fecal matter at officers. A real winner there.
A man drove himself to a parking lot with a stab wound to his neck. When officers arrived he had died. A woman is suspected.

An officer from another agency (and someone I grew up with) was checking his home after hearing a noise. He accidentally fired his gun. Fortunately it grazed his foot. Can't wait to see him again to remind him of finger placement on a pistol.
A car full full of teenagers flee an officer while shooting at him. Thankfully they missed and last I heard two were caught along with the gun.

I read with great interest SB0001 in Indiana. If I understand the premise correctly it's design is to protect citizens from unlawful government intrusions. I can certainly respect that ideal. However I do not think this bill goes far enough to protect the people from the government. The vast majority of intrusion isn't from law enforcement but from the legislators across the nation that make bad laws. Therefore I respectfully suggest that citizens be allowed to use reasonable force to defend themselves from the legislators that would unlawfully interfere with their lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness. Now I'm not saying citizens be allowed to use force to defend themselves against legislators making laws they disagree with. I respectfully suggest that citizens use the same standard they would in determining a police officer's presence on their property is unlawful; simply leave it up to the perception of the citizen. If the citizen reasonably believes a law passed by a legislator would harm him/her then the citizen be allowed to use reasonable force against the legislator as they would the police officer. Thank you for your time in reading this email and good luck in protecting the citizenry from yourselves.

Two drug mules come into town to do "business.". They check into a motel and leave with 2 kilos of cocaine. Sadly for them they get caught and arrested. Two days later the rest of their load consisting of more cocaine and over $100,000 in cash is found in their room by motel staff. Police are called who seize the money and cocaine. I wonder if those guys are in jail panicking over the fate of the money and cocaine they left behind.
A drunk, illegal alien (with a prior DWI) drives past an officer with two flat tires. He thought it unfair he was being arrested.

A man and woman were found dead from gunshot wounds in a motel room.
A felony fugitive in a stolen car fled during rush hour traffic. He crashed into a car and ran on foot. He was finally apprehended.
Officers got lucky investigating a suspicious vehicle and the burglar walked out and right into the arms of an officer. Property was recovered.
Two stupid teenagers argued over a girl. The jilted male pulled a pistol and shot the rival suitor in the butt to regain his "honor."
A crazy guy kicked out of a mental health facility for being violent tried to come back. However he got the wrong house. He went to the psych hospital.
A drunk and crazy man drove a tractor into a strip center and raised the bucket. People thought he was going to drive it into the store. He took off his shirt and waved it around offering a beer. When officers arrived they had to taze him. He was then arrested.
A man called to report his buddy was stabbed and laying in a field on the side of the road. I wish I could have gotten that whole story.
I made two arrests for the same thing. Drive while license suspended, the easiest charge to file. The second was a woman from Austin. She was 39, and living the bohemian lifestyle. She'd been living here and Austin. I guess that's why she failed to take care of that warrant as well.

A woman led officers on a chase across about 20 miles of freeway before fleeing into a neighborhood (probably her home) and finally stopping.
A woman pulls in behind an officer who had her illegal alien, no ID having husband stopped on traffic. Too bad for her she had an old theft warrant for her arrest. When she was arrested she screamed, cried, and whined. She had been charged with stealing from a family (including children) she worked for. Hard to pity her. At the jail a fake ID card was found but the DA's office refused to prosecute.
A woman called to report her 21 year old son shot himself. No reason at this time.

Started the night with a man screaming for help call. Turns out he was stuck on his ladder.
A man riding a bicycle got caught with marijuana.
A woman was seen drifting to a couple of exits then swerving back. Took her awhile to stop. She was drunk.
Officers respond to an alarm and find an open door. They check the residence and find it empty. Except that someone left their marijuana and scales on the table. Oops.
While taking a drunk driver to intox an officer listens helplessly as the drunk pukes in her backseat.

Remember the old, retired deputy suffering from dementia (go back a couple of posts)? He showed up at the station to talk about people following him. As citizens walked into the lobby he claimed they were part of the conspiracy. He tried to show off his pistol there in the lobby and had to be stopped. He was sent home with an officer following. While en route he started freaking out and waving his gun around. He was stopped and taken to a psych hospital. We shall see if this is the last we'll see of him.
Two black males tried to strong arm rob a Sonic. They jumped the poor car hop and pulled her inside. Fortunately someone hit an alarm and they fled
Meanwhile across town another black male with a mask robbed a taqueria at gunpoint.
A wrecker driver tows a car and let's the driver ride with him. After stoping him off he realized his cell phone was missing.
A guy taking care of his sick mother drives to a parking lot to have phone sex with his girlfriend. He starts handling himself in his car, in the middle of an empty business plaza lot. It must have been some good phone sex because he never saw the officer until it was too late. I wonder how he is going to explain this to his sick mother.

Meanwhile someone kicked in the back door while the family is home setting off the alarm. The burglars fled.
A man called is to report he was car jacked. While the timeline of his story didn't add up other officers come by and tell us this man's truck was involved in a crash earlier this night and the driver fled. Since we couldn't locate the original parties to the accident we went ahead and took his BS report. Hopefully the detectives will be smart enough to follow up and file false report charges later on.

A woman called to report a 21 year old male wasn't breathing. He was taken to the hospital where he died.
A man called saying his father shot himself in the head. When officers arrived they found a male with a gunshot wound to his head.
After a pursuit a K9 finds one of the suspects and biting the hell out of him.
I hate family disturbances. A couple are cursing at each other with their young daughter watching sending her into tears. No charges are filed because there was no assault. Poor girl I hate these kinds of calls. The ADA doesn't take any charges but says we have to make the man leave. I love it when DA's think they are bigger than they really are. If we're not arresting anyone we can't force people out of this own homes. While there I noticed their professionally made family portrait. They were sitting together, holding each other, smiling, looking like the perfect family. Yet tonight he is drunk and cursing in front of his twin daughters. She is drunk and dropping F bombs like a rapper and the twin girls are upset.
I was behind a car when the passenger side door opens and a woman's head pops out vomiting. I stop the car knowing what I had. Fortunately the designated driver was doing her job. I wished her luck and let them go.
We then get called to a man in a car. I find him drunk, passed out with the door open. He's got his arms crossed instinctively Trying to keep warm. As I'm shaking him up I see the pink vomit on the ground. We finally get him woken up and he can't say how he got there. I ask about the blood on the side of the car. His eyes widen and he starts to panic. I found it funny because there was no blood. I just wanted to mess with him. Fortunately for him his group lived right there and we sent him to them.
A man was finally caught after committing a series of robberies at local bus stops. He would ride the train and rob people sitting at the stops. Not a very ambitious robber I must say. Robbing public transportation clientele!!! Really!!
An officer first said he was clearing a jam in his gun. Then he said he was checking the function when the rifle fired in his car. Oops!
A woman hears banging sounds against her front window. She calls 911 and we go. I get there first. As I go up the driveway I hear someone on the other side of the gate leading into the backyard. He suddenly opens the gate almost getting a gun put in his face. It was the homeowner startling us. Come to find out the banging noise was an eagle emblem on the flag pole blowing against the window.
We get another, similar call. We run lights and siren to learn it was a damn cat making the noises.
A drunk woman speeds past an officer who gives chase. The officer gets the woman stopped who puts up a struggle which got us coming code. By the time I got there she was laid out on the trunk screaming and crying. She went to jail.
While driving down the road I see a vehicle speeding and all over the road. I stop him and see what I thought was marijuana. Turns out it was Cush, the synthetic marijuana. I arrested him. I'm sure his felony probation will be yanked soon.
An officer finds a drunk passed out behind the wheel. The officer gets the drunk out who assaults the officer. The officer was slightly injured and the drunk went to jail insisting he did nothing wrong.
Two teens were seen trying to break into cars. When we get there one is seen running up the street on his cell phone. Most likely hollering at someone to pick him up. We ran up and down a bayou but we lost him.
A couple living with his patents get into a fight with their baby in the room. They lived with his parents because he got laid off and found a job up here. The DA took no charges because the woman wasn't forthcoming in her story. She ended up leaving with the baby thus breaking the hearts of the grandparents.
Later on was eating breakfast with my supervisor when two intoxicated girls wanted a picture with us. My supervisor didn't let it. I didn't mind as long as it was a "pose with" picture and not a drunk club picture. The girls said I was hotter anyway. I'm going to remind my supervisor of that periodically.
