AUG. 7

FIVE OF 10 = 90%

16000 block of West Colonial Drive. Drunken driving. At 4:03 a.m., an officer stopped a car swerving between lanes and onto a median. The driver fumbled her wallet under the glove compartment, from which she pulled her registration. The officer asked for her license, but she said she could not find it. Despite strong odors of alcohol and slurred speech, she denied drinking. Dispatch informed the officer the driver’s license was suspended. The officer returned and found her crying, saying, “Please don’t take me to jail.” The officer asked why he would; she confessed to having a suspended license. She exited per request, dropping money on the ground without collecting it. She admitted having three beers and said she was at “about 90%” when asked. She said she had stopped drinking more than three hours earlier and rated herself at five on a 10 scale, with zero being sober. While under arrest, her breath registered a .190 blood alcohol content at 5:39 a.m.


400 block of North Jefferson Street. Burglary. At 11:30 p.m., an officer reported to a residence regarding a burglary. The victims had returned from dinner and found a broken bathroom window via a rock, with the dogs locked in a bedroom. Items were scattered. Two televisions, an iPhone, two laptops and chargers, two phone chargers, two jars of change and a 12-gauge shotgun were missing, altogether worth about $5,225. The laptops and televisions were in the bushes of a neighbor, who said he had heard the window break but had seen nothing.
