A horned lizard was apparently the victim of someone's twisted effort at revenge, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
A man reported that he found graffiti on his shed when he woke up—as well as a "dead horny toad glitter(ing) on his vehicle."
A deputy interviewed the man, who showed him the graffiti. The deputy also saw the dead lizard on the hood of the car.
The man said there'd been a party at a house across the street the night before, and that law enforcement had shown up, presumably because someone had reported a disturbance. The man told deputies he hadn't called law enforcement, and that it must have been one of his neighbors. The man speculated that the party's host had incorrectly assumed that it was he who had called the cops and decided to retaliate.
The man said that a week earlier, the same person had hosted a party, which also was busted, and that the next day, he had found graffiti on his car.
The deputy photographed the graffiti and the dead reptile. The report said no one answered the door at the house where the party was held.

A woman was arrested after refusing to leave her part-time boyfriend's house, a PCSD report said.
Deputies were called to a southwest-side residence, where they met a man who said he'd been living with a woman on and off since February. He said she came and went as she pleased, engaging in a romantic relationship with him when she needed a place to stay.
The man told a deputy that she most recently had come by the night before, but that he believed she was on drugs, and he told her to leave, which she did. But she returned about four hours later, claiming that she had nowhere else to stay, so the man let her in.
The man said he was awakened in the middle of the night by the sounds of the woman screaming, throwing things and repeatedly opening and closing his garage door. He said she refused to leave.
Another deputy spoke with the woman, who dropped a clay pot she was holding when he approached her. She first told the deputy she had consumed two shots of gin, and then said it had actually been tequila. She then proceeded to tell the deputy everything she had eaten in the last two days.
She was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and domestic violence.
