Aug. 20

• At 6:29 p.m. officers responded to Pizza Hut on North Chicago Street because someone left a pit bull puppy inside an unoccupied truck. Shortly after the officer arrived, he watched a man come out of the restaurant and retrieve the puppy. When the officer approached the man and asked for his name, the officer suspected the man was concealing his identity. After placing the man in handcuffs, the man revealed his true name and birth date. Officers found brass knuckles and a utility knife in the man’s pants pocket when they frisked him. The man was issued a citation for unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon, and was released.

• At 11:17 p.m., officers responded to the 700 block of west 17th Street for a domestic incident. Officers made contact with a female who said her family called police against her wishes. The female said she was with her boyfriend earlier in the day, and that he is married and his wife knows and accepts the extramarital affair. However, she said, her boyfriend doesn’t like the two women in the same place at the same time. So when they were driving around earlier in the day, the man saw his wife and became angry, slapping his girlfriend. The girlfriend said her boyfriend was high on methamphetamine at the time. No evidence of battery was found, and the case was cleared.

• At 11:48 p.m. officers responded to an unknown type of domestic incident at the 100 block of S. Boulder Street. When officers arrived they found two intoxicated females, one who appeared as if she urinated on herself. When one woman tried to stand up to talk to the officer, she fell down and began laughing. After she got up and was told to go sit down, the woman fell down again. That female was taken to the hospital. The officer concluded that neither woman could safely watch the two children that lived at the home, so the Children, Youth and Families Department was called, and the children were removed from the home.
