More News from My Hometown

After my last "News from My Hometown" posting I received a number of other published police news incidents from the past year. Despite my urge to move on because I'd already "been there... done that", some are good enough to warrant one more post.

From this past Winter...
Vandalism — At 3:50 p.m. on Thursday, police received a report of bad words and inappropriate pictures on the ice and snow on the pond at Swan City Park. Police decided that snow would be covering them shortly.

Sometimes you just gotta hit something...
Vanalism - Police received a report on Wednesday at 5:10 p.m. that a man was striking a vehicle with a hammer while he was in the 100 block of Frances Lane. Police made contact with the 41-year-old man who told officers he was upset and took his aggression out on his vehicle.

Mistaken identity...
Animal call - Police responded to the 200 block of West Mackie Street on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for a report of a black bear cub in a driveway. Police made contact and found out it was a cocker spaniel.

PETA's investigating...
Hit and Run - Police received a report of run-over squirrel flopping around in the 200 block of North University Ave. at 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Police responded but the animal was completely flattened by the time they arrived. No further action was taken.

No comment needed...
Disorderly conduct - A 38-year-old Stoughton man was cited for disorderly conduct on Feb. 10 at 11 p.m. The man was spotted stumbling down Madison Street near Greenwich Street. The man was unable to identify himself by name and attempted to kiss an officer while being searched. After that incident, the officer backed away, and the man began clenching his fists. The officer placed handcuffs on the man. A preliminary breathalyzer test resulted in a reading of .25. He was then transported to Tellerium Detox Facility.
