With the bad weather, along with extra heavy traffic, we have had several motor vehicle accidents around the Big City. We had one with injuries on South Spencer at the river bridge. A gal lost control of her vehicle (while driving on a suspended license with no insurance and bald tires) and struck the bridge, impaling her car on the guardrail. This saved her car – and her – from ending up in the river. She was transported by EMS with non-life threatening injuries. We have also assisted the Highway Patrol with several 10-50’s (cop talk for a motor vehicle crash). If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in one, please be patient, as they have been very backed up with calls.
We received a domestic violence call at one of our apartment complexes. A couple was arguing over their cat, which had pooped on the floor. No charges were filed against the cat, or anyone else.
We would like to thank one person who assisted us in capturing her for an outstanding bench warrant by making a left turn from the center lane of E. Main Street. She, too, was driving on a suspended license. Her car was towed and she was given a courtesy ride to 950 California Avenue. I’m not sure if they will be serving any figgie pudding for the holidays, though.
We hope everyone enjoys their holiday time off with friends and family! We would also like to thank all of you who brought us goodies to the police department. We have enjoyed them. I have also heard from several officers from several different departments that people having been coming up to them and thanking them for what they do. This truly means the world to us, and we thank you for taking the time to let us know.
It’s Christmas, but we will still be out and about.
