Poopy revenge: A man said he threw a bag of dog poop at another man because he came at him aggressively on the street. Police said the men’s dogs got into a fight, causing the men to argue.

Porch party: At 10:35 p.m. Aug. 5 a resident on Rancher Street called police because of “drunk men being super loud.” When officers arrived they found a man passed out on a porch, with a cellphone playing music in one hand and a can of PBR in the other hand.

The Alabama teen was cited for possession of a controlled substance and minor under the influence.

Tuesday booze day: At 10:30 p.m. Aug. 6 witnesses saw a man fumbling with a car’s door handles and thought he was trying to steal it.
