Rain, snow, sleet, my coworker has issues, it’s Monday

The evening of Monday, March 21 a man came to police to report an incident.

The man said he was employed as a driver for a U.S. Mail contractor. That morning he was waiting for the truck he was to drive to be handed off to him by its current driver. The truck was late arriving which concerned the driver, due to the time-critical nature of the cargo and its dispatch, and he texted its driver.

She texted him back and was cursing at him, he told the officer, the report stated.

The truck arrived at the lot a short while later and its driver hopped out and began moving her personal items from it to her car. The man reporting to the officer said he began, as was company policy, inspecting the truck prior to his driving it in continuation of its dispatch. While doing this, he told the officer, the woman who had been driving walked up to him and shoved him backwards. He told her to stop and she finished unloading her things from the cab, he told the officer, the report stated.

She, just before he left, came to him and, crying, apologized for her actions, he told the officer.

The man said he was just a few minutes down the road when he received a text message from the woman. The message said she was going to file a police report about their confrontation and she was going to pursue charges against him. The man told the officer he "... was not afraid of any woman beating up on him, but [she] had no right to shove him," the report stated, he having given the officer the woman’s name. He reported all this to his boss, who told him to file a police report, hence his visit, he told the officer, the report stated.

The officer gave the man the report number.

Iron and glass

It was 10 p.m. the night of Sunday, March 20, when officers were called to a home about a disturbance. On the way there the officers were told the person who caused the disturbance had left the home and smashed windows in her wake.

The officers arrived and noted straight away the home’s glass front door and a nearby glass storm window had been broken, with glass shards scattered about. They spoke with the person who had called the police.

She, the woman of the home, told them of a second woman who had come to the house threatening her. The woman making threats then took a tire iron from her SUV and began smashing windows, telling the woman of the home she was going to use the tire iron to "bust" the other woman "up the side of the head."

To the officer’s question, she explained the other woman was upset because her boyfriend had been at the tire-iron woman’s home but then left to return to her home. When the attacking woman found out the man had left she "became enraged," she told the officers, the report stated.

During the interim time between the boyfriend leaving her home and her arriving at the reporting woman’s, it was explained how the attacking woman sent the reporting woman several text messages indicating both rage and intent for mayhem. She gave officers both the attacking woman’s name and a description of the car she was driving.

The officers gave the woman of the home a report number, and told her to call them if she saw the attacking woman again.

Two hours later police received a call from the home. She had just received a message that the attacking woman was in the area, dispatch relayed to officers.

Officers arrived and spotted the SUV the woman of the home had described to officers. They went blue lights and did a traffic stop, then had the woman step out of the car so they could speak with her. The report noted here a tire iron laying upon the front floorboard of the SUV.

Offices spoke with the woman, who told them she and the woman of the home had "gotten into a scuffle resulting in damaged property," the report stated. She had not made any threats and the woman of the home had been "playing her," she told the officer, the report stated.

The officer tried to, but could not reach, the woman of the home, thus ending efforts at getting a criminal trespass warning. They released the SUV driver (and, presumably, her tire iron) and told her not to return to the home, to which she agreed.

Belts and tags

Monday morning, March 21, and an officer on patrol saw a car, an import economy sedan, pass while the driver was not wearing a seat belt. He initiated a traffic stop.

As a component of the traffic stop he ran the license plate number and found the license plate was registered to an older domestic sedan and had expired, per dispatch, in 2014. As he continued his investigation he called in the 2017 expiration tag on the plate and found it returned to a late model domestic SUV.

The officer spoke with the driver, getting her license and related paperwork, including registration. She told the officer she did not have insurance, the report stated. The officer called in the woman’s ID and found she had a suspended driver’s license. The officer had her step from the car and walk back to his patrol vehicle.

He noted here the woman appeared nervous, shifting around and keeping her hands in her pockets. With her consent he searched her, but found nothing illegal. He asked her about the tags on her car and she said someone had given her the license plate, telling her "it would be legal," the report stated.

"I advised her there was no way the license plate would be legal to use because it was not hers," the officer reported, adding that he explained to the woman how the license plate and its renewal tag were to other vehicles. "She did not have anything else to add in reference to the license plate," the report stated.

The officer checked the VIN, which did return to that car. He also searched the car in preparation for it being impounded, and found nothing illegal.

The woman was ticketed for driving on a suspended license, fictitious tags, no insurance, failure to provide proof of insurance, and no seat belt.

The car was impounded.
