Blotters from the last week, including New Year's

Ok, ok, New Year's resolution: I'll get better at posting these regularly. I got sidetracked with vacation and the holidays, but we're starting anew here and I'll be posting these on the regular.

I would wager a guess that the most interesting blotter here is the New Year's Eve one.

Here are the high(low)lights I noticed:

One thing I find interesting is what the New Year's Eve police chase/crash looked like in the blotter at about 1:15 a.m. or so. It looked so mundane in the blotter on page 8.

About 10 minutes after the crash, at 1:25 a.m., there was a seemingly unrelated report of 20 people in a parking lot on South Broadway, fighting. 

I don’t envy the police on nights like this one, for sure, seeing as though the next blotter entry (within a couple minutes) was a report of someone being assaulted on Caroline Street. 

From here on out, I’ll just start listing the interesting ones, but it’s definitely worth a look at the regular blotter, since it is nothing but “intoxicated male… intoxicated female…” followed by ridiculous antics. 

1:50 a.m. Report: white female in black mini-skirt, intoxicated, feeling faint (can you narrow it down?)
1:52 a.m. Male subject down on Caroline street, bleeding from the head.
2:01 a.m. Two vehicles struck. An arrest was made.
2:19 a.m. Broadway: Male subject sleeping in a snow bank. (I’m sure he was just tired).
2:31 a.m. Intoxicated caller reports male told her he has a gun. None found.
2:30 a.m. Male down with head injury.
2:57 a.m. Grand Avenue – reports of screams from neighboring residence.
3:04 a.m. 7 Caroline Street: Unwanted guest, intoxicated male.
3:06 a.m. Female walking in the middle of the street, flagging cars down for a ride.
3:39 a.m. 7 Caroline Street: Unwanted guest, intoxicated male.
4:20 a.m. Caroline Street: Reports of two males assaulting a female. Verbal warning.
5:03 a.m. Granite Street: Intoxicated male gained entrance into house and left with unknown direction of travel.

Here it is in all its glory:

New Year's Eve Blotter

From here on out I'll put it all in chronological order starting with the one that came out the morning of Christmas Eve.

Dec. 24 blotter

The Christmas Eve and Christmas day blotters both came out in one on Dec. 26.

Obviously you saw the blotter from the night of Dec. 31 at the top, so here is the first full blotter of the New Year.

Well, I'm working for the next few days, so Let's see how long this resolution lasts (also, weekends don't count, I'll post them Monday or Tuesday, whenever I get in for the week.
