SEPT. 2, 12:30 P.M.

Two middle-school children were possibly engaged in an ongoing war of urination, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Deputies responded to Cross Middle School, 1000 W. Chapala Drive, regarding an assault call. A male student reported that he had been near the library with another male student when that boy turned toward him and—without saying anything—began to urinate on his right side, hitting his shirt. He then allegedly laughed. The deputy asked the victim why the boy would urinate on him; the victim said he did not know—the boy was "just that kind of person."

The alleged urinator confessed to having emptied his bladder on the victim, but said it was in retaliation for another incident in which the victim had done the same thing to him. The victim denied ever urinating on the subject.

The admitted urinator was escorted to the principal's office.



SEPT. 2, 10:52 P.M.

A man making strange threats toward his wife was evidently so volatile that he could not gain entry to any mental-health facility in town, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

A Green Valley female called deputies to report threats made by her husband. He had allegedly phoned her and warned her of violence from a nonexistent "new wife," specifically saying, "My new wife is going to beat the shit out of you and kill you." After saying that, he hung up.

The victim said her husband had always been "a little unstable." Apparently, the reportee had at one point tried to visit her husband at the mental-health facility at which he had been living, but they were kicking him out, because he was too mentally ill. She then tried to take him to another facility, but that facility would not accept him, nor would yet another facility. Finally, she dropped him off at a library in South Tucson so he could walk to a homeless shelter, but the shelter, too, rejected him. She did not know where her husband was located at the time of the report.

The reportee said her husband was usually able to remain in "a somewhat normal state" while taking his medications; she was not sure whether or not he had not been taking his medications, or they were no longer working. She said that she had several children, one of them in common with her mentally ill husband.

When asked if she planned to divorce her husband, she said she "more than likely was."

She was advised to get a restraining order or an order against harassment.
