Among reports filed with police:
1800 block of O Street: Two ladies entered into a salacious business agreement, the scope of which involved meeting a man at a motel room to exchange favors for money. Upon completion of the transaction, one woman wrecked the other woman’s car while driving to a home in this neighborhood. The car’s owner actually called police who, after sorting it all out, took the two young ladies to jail for prostitution.
1200 block of M Street: Police stopped a vehicle because it had an expired license plate. Surprise — the dude behind the wheel had an expired driver license to match. Bigger surprise — his passenger was wanted on an arrest warrant. And, of course, the cops found dope inside the car.
4705 Altama Ave.: Some teenage troublemakers started a fight with some guys who worked at the Sonic Drive-in. The kids were gone when police arrived, but an officer found a small bag of pot beside the restaurant’s dumpster. One of the employees fessed up to owning it. Police had to arrest him for misdemeanor possession.
1400 block of Newcastle St.: A person leaving a local restaurant and bar had no business behind the wheel, a fact that an employee pointed out to police after the drunk drove away. Police caught up to the driver, who went to jail for DUI.
2200 block of Wolfe Street: This one guy was three sheets to the wind, creating a fracas and trying to pick a fight with his sister and his older brother. The soused sibling would not calm down even when the cops got there. Police took the 25-year-old to jail, charged with disorderly conduct.
1200 block of Emanuel Church Road: A woman crashed her car in the middle of deluging thunderstorm. A police officer responded and determined she was going too fast and could not keep control of the vehicle. This was probably due to being drunk.
