KNOCK, KNOCK! HE'S STILL THERE!
JAN. 14, 11:20 P.M.
An apparently drunken man demanded leniency after ceasing to harass a family, according to a Pima County Sherriff's Department report.
Deputies responding to a call regarding a prowler met with the homeowners, who said a man they didn't know had been ringing their doorbell over and over, for as long as 15 minutes, while also banging on the door, yelling and singing. The noise was especially troublesome, they said, because it had riled up their six Chihuahuas.
Deputies found the subject stumbling around near the front door of the home; one deputy recognized him from previous arrests for trespassing and disorderly conduct.
The man, who smelled of alcohol, refused to answer deputies' questions, including the question of why he was at the house. Instead, he rambled on about national security and satellites watching him from outer space
The homeowners told deputies they had asked the subject to leave multiple times, although the subject claimed it had been only once.
The man was booked into jail, where he kept insisting that he be charged with only one count instead of the four counts against him—three for disorderly conduct, and one for criminal trespassing.
GIVE HER SHELTER
SOUTH CRAYCROFT ROAD
JAN. 9, 7:32 P.M.
A woman who said she kicked herself out of her own house and had nowhere else to go got a place to stay for the night—jail—after drinking in public, a PCSD report stated.
A deputy was dispatched to a southside Circle K in response to a call that a woman was harassing customers in the parking lot. When the deputy asked for her name, she mumbled something unintelligible and fumbled around in her purse. The woman, who smelled of alcohol, had an open can of Milwaukee's Best beer sitting next to her in plain sight, as well as several unopened beer cans.
When the deputy told her that she wasn't wanted in the lot, she said she lived down the road but couldn't go home, because she "she kicked (herself) out of (her) own house."
Asked if she had a place to stay for the night, the woman said that she was all alone and that all of her possessions were with her. All she had were the beer cans and a purse that contained a large amount of change, but little else.
She was booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center for consuming alcohol in a public place.
