"A woman in a Third Avenue West apartment was reported trying to catch bugs that weren’t there...."

Time to get back to the old Inter Lake police blotter news:
An Appleway Drive boy reported his mother was drunk and trying to kick him out. She told officers she was kicking him out due to his drinking and drug activity....

An officer assisted a man crawling in the middle of East First Street....

The Columbia Falls Police Department received a report from a confused First Avenue West North resident who said a man tried to come into the house and give the resident a $1,000 ticket, but didn’t say what kind. The resident told the man “I’m not interested” and shut the door.

But did you pause while you were there to read Frank Miele's Editor's Two Cents column?

A Whitefish Police Department officer spoke with a man claiming to be Barack Obama after an East Fourth Street resident received phone calls from a scam artist claiming she had won $1 million. The man was advised not to call the resident anymore.

How do they know it really wasn't him?

Why would anyone want to be Barack Obama?

The Arcata (California) Eye has a most entertaining police blotter.

Click on the "Police Log" button at the top of the page.

A random example,

"Wednesday, January 9 1:05 p.m. Mr. Anti-Congeniality positioned himself outside an H Street shop, where, beer in hand, he lashed passersby with halitosis-borne verbal abuse. Arrested on a public drunkenness charge, he was taken to the hospital, which was to re-phone police when he was ready for booking. But the hospital’s next call to police was a request for an officer, because the man was becoming combative and confrontational with staff."

I once made it onto the local radio show in Ontonagon, MI when my car was hit by a snowmobile while parked in a restaurant parking lot. I figured it would have been more newsworthy that I was the only one in town that wasn't blonde haired and blue eyed.

Yeah, I once drove through downtown Long Beach and saw a woman on the street corner catching bugs that weren't there. It never crossed my mind to report her, the poor thing. Imagine being on hallucinogenics in LONG BEACH.

Google Flathead County police blotter.

If the cops spent less time rousting people because they don't like their bumper stickers, they would have more time to deal with problems like these.

I used to play the Carmel (CA) Bach Festival, and we eagerly awaited each week's issue of the Carmel Pine Cone, mostly for the Police Log. One year the Festival Choir picked some of the choicest items, set them to an Anglican responsory formula, and sang them at the final "Best of the Fest" concert.

(I think my favorite from that one was a report called in of three poodles in the middle of the street. The entry ended "unable to locate." You can't imagine how hilarious that sounds sung in a High Church Episcopal chant style.)

Great post! Lots of people are asking about the optometrist irmo sc for their eye sight concerns. Some people are suffering having poor eye sight and they need to have a reliable eye doctor.
