We still get the newspaper from our old hometown in Texas. It’s dangerous out there in the Wild, Wild West. From the police log:
Sticks and Stones…what was that again?
Deputies were called to a North Fork Road house Saturday morning after a woman called dispatch seeking to file charges against the person spreading rumors about her. The woman told the deputy she knows the person that is smearing her name.
You Painted My Dog?
Deputies were called to Sandy Beach Sunday afternoon when a woman reported that a man assaulted her and painted her dog. The woman fled to a neighbor’s house and called police. The woman called dispatch back a few minutes later asking deputies to disregard the call.
My Cat? Maybe……
An animal control officer was called to Glen Rose Medical Center Friday night after a cat bit a Hood County man. The man told the officer the cat was kind of his, but not his.
Pick Up After Yourself
A man called dispatch Saturday morning after he found a syringe cap lying in his Rolling Hills Shores backyard next to his daughter’s trampoline. The man further said his neighbors always leave dirty syringes lying around everywhere.
Pawn Receipt for ID
A store clerk called 911 Friday evening when a man became disorderly in the store after the clerk refused to sell him alcohol. The clerk said she refused because when she asked the man for identification, he showed her a paper pawn receipt with a date of birth on it.
I SWEAR THESE ARE STRAIGHT FROM THE POLICE LOG.
I wonder if I can use that Vietnam Veterans donation receipt I got yesterday for ID instead of my drivers license? (Doesn’t that count as government-issued?) I really don’t like my drivers license picture, you know…… And I KNOW THE NEIGHBORS ARE TALKING ABOUT ME. I am so calling the cops.
