Blotters for Dec. 10, 11

Here are the blotters released Monday and Tuesday.

There were no arrests either day and at first glance, doesn't appear to be anything too crazy.

Just after midnight Sunday, a man called police asking what he should do about a small piece of paper towel lodged in his throat... so that's interesting. Blotter 121012
For the blotter released Tuesday for 8 a.m. Monday to 8 a.m. Tuesday, A woman was egged while walking her dogs along Michael Drive Monday night and a man was dropped off on Allen Drive at about midnight, only get confused about where he lived. At that point dispatchers reported he "is screaming." Blotter 121112

Just curious if anyone out there is actually reading these? I haven't seen any comment, which usually indicates that I may as well be posting this over my desk for the number of people who read it.

I read them. I keep waiting for a call from a person reporting a mad dentist.

Just a matter of time

They do to some extent. I get a list of arrests as well on most days (the last two days there haven't been any arrests) with some info about what led to the arrest. They also provide this, which is all of their "calls for service" which can be anything from a cat in a tree to someone with paper towel in his throat to a report of a 12-year-old with a screw driver attacking his mother (that was the other day, but there was no arrest). If it amounts to an arrest, it'll be in the arrest blotter. This is just everything else.
