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.
