Police Blotter

Bad shot: A drunk woman accidentally fired a gun, shooting a bullet through her apartment wall and a tree before it hit her neighbor’s place. Police said no one was hurt. It happened at 10:30 p.m. Sunday. The 39-year-old was cited for discharging a weapon in city limits.

Feisty drunk: A woman who appeared to be “hammered” ran the red light at the five-way intersection in Jackson at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 4, so officers pulled her over. The 31-year-old was “sipping on white wine in a plastic cup” and bragging about driving home and not getting caught. “But you didn’t catch me, b-tch,” the woman reportedly told the officer. The woman then claimed her white wine was iced tea. When she was stumbling during her one-leg stand she said, “That didn’t count; it was just practice.” The Jackson woman blew a 0.262% and was arrested on a DUI charge.

Unsuspecting bush: Officers saw a man stumble down the sidewalk on West Broadway at 12:30 a.m. Friday and stop to pee in a bush. When officers approached the man he continued urinating. They asked him to put his penis back in his pants and to get his identification out. “He said he was staying at the Elks Lodge,” Jackson police Lt. Roger Schultz said. The man was too drunk to physically call a cab, so he was arrested on a charge of public intoxication.

One step away from a DUI: Officers watched two drunk men as they got in their truck near Town Square. “Rather than let the men drive away, officers made contact,” Schultz said. The men refused to provide their driver’s licenses, police said. The cops took one man to jail on a public intoxication charge, and while he was being booked, officers found 0.06 grams of LSD. He was also charged with possession.

You can run, but you can’t hide: Officers got their steps in this weekend after a foot pursuit of a man they were trying to arrest. It was about 1:40 a.m. Sunday when officers heard a fight in an alley just off Town Square. They found a man yelling, and when he saw the cops he took off sprinting. The officers caught up to him and tackled him in the Home Ranch parking lot. The 27-year-old Jackson man was arrested on a charge of public intoxication.

We remember our first beer: Officers saw a man slumped over in front of Merry Piglets at 1:45 a.m. Sunday. He had his head tucked between his knees and was clearly passed out. He had thrown up on the sidewalk in front of him. The 20-year-old blew a 0.10% and was arrested on a charge of minor under the influence.

Pushing daisies: A drunk woman ran her car into a flower planter at Super 8 and then went inside and used the restroom. Then she drove her car across the parking lot toward MovieWorks Cinema. When a deputy asked her for her driver’s license she handed him her credit card. She was arrested on charge of DUI.
