NO LAW BROKEN HERE – But a Dry Branch Mobile Home Park woman called deputies anyway to complain that she was upset because her father died and her boyfriend would not attend services with her. The man said he didn’t want to go because the woman’s ex-boyfriend would be there. Deputies determined no crime was committed.
MORE FROM DRY BRANCH VILLAGE – A man said a woman hit him with a spatula and shattered his truck’s glass window with a large piece of wood. The argument started when the man went to his wife’s work to tell him he had just lost his job. She became angry, and then followed him home, where she struck him and damaged the truck. Deputies arrested her after she was dishonest in denying having left work to go home.
AFRAID TO GO HOME – A Harvey Wilson Road woman said her live-in boyfriend of 20 years had texted her all day threatening to beat her when she got home. She told deputies she did not want to go home if he was there. The man was angry when deputies arrived, saying he did not call them and they had no reason to be there. Family members talked him into leaving for the night since the woman had no place to go.
THAT’S JUST NASTY – A Rucker Lane man told police his roommate dumped trash on his bed.
DISHING IT OUT –Deputies spoke with a Thomkin Drive man being treated at the hospital who said he and a man argued over dishes, and the other man stuck him in the jaw with his fist.
HIT AND RUN – A man said someone on Cliponreka Road in a silver Ford pickup with a black brush guard ran him off the road, made him fall and ran over his bicycle before leaving the scene.
JUST A SCRATCH – Police spoke with a woman who was being treated at the hospital for a scratch she received when another woman tried to grab a pen from her.
