Ongoing Dispute #6

The nice things about a weekly regular thing: Get to slack off most of the week and I still have something new from time to time.

So what's it going to be? Weird ducks dragging coyotes into the woods? Let's do this thing.

  • A man walked into Exercise Haus in the 16200 block of B Boulevard and grabbed 40 or more Lakers jerseys, valued at $70 each, and ran out. The man got into a waiting two-tone maroon vehicle and left.
    The suspect is described as a black man in his mid-20s, 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a stocky build and a scruffy beard, and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. The driver of the compact Chevrolet or Honda was female.
    The incident was reported at 10:03 a.m. Sunday.

  • A caller said he and three of his friends were detaining a man they caught trying to steal a beach cruiser, 12:04 a.m.

  • A blue Toyota sedan was seen driving on the wrong side of the road and on the median, 1:17 a.m.

  • A caller said a man in a red pickup truck was dragging a husky tied to the truck with a chain. The truck stopped and the driver threw the dog in back of the truck "like a sack of potatoes." Police were unable to locate the truck, 10:08 a.m.

  • Two or three dozen ducks were in the street in front of In-N-Out and several were run over by cars, 1:25 p.m.

  • A caller said three masked men were robbing a business across the street with guns drawn. The caller, described as sounding "hysterical," said customers were on the ground. Officers responded but were unable to locate any masked gunmen, 5:48 p.m.

  • A small child on a bicycle was struck by a white Jeep, 7:42 p.m.

  • A resident told police a woman was thrown out of a car in front of his house. The woman, who was described as being "hysterical," told the resident several males had beaten her up and thrown her out of the car. Several juveniles in the area told the resident a man in the car threatened them, 12:36 a.m.

  • A resident said her husband caught a group of juveniles vandalizing their house and he was detaining them by sitting on their car. The caller said it was the third time her home had been vandalized, 2:16 a.m.

  • A caller said she woke up and found a man passed out on her floor and he had overdosed on heroin. Medics administered CPR but were unable to resuscitate the man, 3:26 a.m.

  • A caller said there was blood on the side of a building and bloody footprints on the ground. The caller also said a man in a white minivan had been watching him all morning. Police determined the man in the van was not suspicious and the blood was only a small amount, possibly from a cut foot, 10:58 a.m.

  • A boy was riding his bike in the wetlands, making jumps with several other kids and fell off his bike. The boy hit his head and was transported to a hospital, 6:11 p.m.

  • A diner put down $40 to pay for his bill at a restaurant and a female passerby grabbed the cash, 9:46 p.m.

  • A caller said two teenagers were "getting hot and heavy" behind a jungle gym at Bolsa View Park Monday at 7:29 p.m. An officer advised the young couple about "excessive cuddling in public."

  • A caller said the driver of a blue Town & Country van was breaking for no reason and appeared to be drunk. An officer caught up with the driver and determined the driver of the van and passengers were Norwegian tourists who were trying to find their hotel and were not intoxicated, 12:15 a.m.

  • A caller said a man who was "completely nude" behind Stater Bros. kept falling whenever he stood up. The caller suspected the man was drunk. Medics transported the man to a hospital, 11:09 a.m.

  • A school administrator at Dlastname Middle School found a bong and marijuana in a student's backpack, 2:48 p.m.

  • A woman was in the middle of an intersection because one of her dogs was hit by a car. A witness said the woman's dogs, which were off the leash, ran into traffic when they saw the witness' dog, and a car struck and killed one of them, 8:02 p.m.

  • A male and female "cuddled up" next to a "mini bonfire" near a playground area. Officers interviewed the couple and found they were burning an ex-boyfriend's letters, 9:18 p.m.

  • A woman who was not living in her home while construction was going on said $9,000 cash was taken from her attic. The woman said the theft occurred sometime between May 9 and June 1 from her home in the 900 block of Ocean Beach Highway. The incident was reported at 8:11 a.m. on Tuesday.

  • Two cars were intentionally striking each other in the Hcityname High School parking lot near Wlastname Park, 12:42 a.m.

  • A car struck a white Chihuahua. The injured dog was taken to a vet for treatment, 3:27 p.m.

  • Five boys were poking a beehive, 4:01 p.m.

  • A caller said he heard gunshots, but the shots may have come from a neighbor's house where "Full Metal Jacket" was on TV with the volume up, 8:57 p.m.

  • Four males and a female were acting "suspicious" beneath the pier, 11:24 p.m.

  • A pizza deliverer said a customer and his wife in the 20000-something block of Bgeographicfeature had punched and pushed him, and then threw the pizza over a balcony. He said the couple was upset because the pizza had arrived late. The assault was reported at 8:35 p.m. on Wednesday

  • Someone was bitten by a dog, 8:34 a.m.

  • A business employee said he thought people were having sex in a van in the parking lot. The caller said a similar incident occurred a week ago, 8:37 a.m.

  • An inspector and a security guard for a housing community were involved in an altercation after the guard refused to let the inspector through without being accompanied by a real estate agent. The guard waved his finger in the inspector's face and the inspector hit his hand away, 10:11 a.m.

  • A man may have had a heart attack in the bleachers during a graduation at Hcityname High School, 3:06 p.m.

  • Two men were seen dragging a German shepherd mix dog into a car while drinking, smoking and staggering. During the call, the men began beating the dog. Police arrived and arrested one of the men on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, 3:28 p.m.

  • The driver of a white Camaro, who appeared to be under 16, drove onto the sidewalk near N Street and G Avenue on Thursday and crashed into a "no parking" sign. Traffic had to be diverted while accident debris was cleared. The incident was reported at 2:01 p.m

  • A group of 10-15 females were fighting in a park, 12:14 p.m.

  • Four girls were screaming and fighting. An officer noted the altercation was unrelated to the fight on K Lane (see previous entry), 12:26 p.m.

  • A German shepherd was walking on a tile roof and was "going to fall," 1:03 p.m.

  • Juveniles who looked 13-14 years old were skateboarding and grabbing onto the backs of cars to be pulled around in a parking lot, 2:40 p.m.

  • Four or five "skinhead-looking" males were smoking meth near a church parking lot, 6:08 p.m.

  • A male resident of a housing community who attended a homeowner's association meeting became "irate" about rules enforcement and parking issues. A caller said the man would not leave the meeting, 6:57 p.m.

  • Juveniles set off fireworks and accidentally set some trees on fire. The blaze may have spread to a residence. No injuries were reported, 9:06 p.m.

Well, good to see the ducks are back. I'm guessing the somewhat misguided "Fight the Weird Coyotes" movement is off to a slow, and somewhat mistaken start. And I'm really tempted to rename "Ongoing Dispute" to "Someone was bitten by a dog." And it looks like we're heading into the summer season of excessive cuddling.

As always, names were changed to protect the innocent (this week, more ridiculously than usual) and the source was the OC Register

I'm just worried about the sentient cars. That sounds like an emerging threat.
