A day late, I know, but hopefully you'll forgive me. :)
An egg was found smashed inside a mailbox in the 9200 block of North
Waverley Drive at 11:30 a.m. May 19. No damage was reported.
No damage?? That poor egg is totaled! Have you no heart?
A man was arrested for physical abuse of a child and that child, a male
juvenile, ages and residences not released, for disorderly conduct after
they got into a fight during a basketball game at Fairy Chasm Park,
5712 Fairy Chasm Road, at 5:15 p.m. April 24. The fight started when the
boy blocked the man's shot and then the two began to "trash talk." No
major injuries were reported.
When I first started reading this one, I went, "Oh shit, physical abuse of a child... How awful!" And then after reading I was like, well... Maaaaaaybe he had it coming.*
Six boxes of shrimp valued at $180 were taken from Na Na Asian Fusion
& Sushi Bar, 4511 N. Oakland Ave., at 3 p.m. May 10. The suspect was
a male, about 6-feet tall who entered through a rear door and left with
Poor shrimp. They were just prawns in his game.
A resident called police after picking up "several pieces of dog feces"
from a yard in the 2600 block of East Edgewood Avenue at 7 p.m. May 12.
The resident asked the police to do a DNA test so the dog could be
While I understand being upset about the dog shit, asking for a DNA test is not a normal reaction. I'd have set up a camera to see whose dog it was. Then I'd put the shit in a box. Then I'd put that box inside of another box and mail it to myself. And when it arrived, I'd smash it with a hammer! Wait, no. That doesn't get me anywhere good. Scratch that. I'd put it in a bag, set it on fire and leave it at the jackass's house. Much better.
Eleven 55-gallon drums filled with dirt were taken from Burger King, 4555 W. Forest Home Ave., between May 8 and May 14.
Now how will they make their Whoppers?!
An intoxicated male was lying on the ground after he walked into a
tree and fell down at 76th Street and Cold Spring Road at 2:30 a.m. May
19. His girlfriend arrived at the scene and picked him up.
He's lucky his girlfriend is so nice. I'd have taken pictures and called him George of the Jungle. At minimum.
A 24-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested for drunken driving, with a
prior conviction, driving with a revoked license, also with a prior
conviction, a warrant, refusal to take a breath test and driving west in
an eastbound lane on Mequon Road at River Road at 2:15 a.m. May 15. He
told police he had not been drinking and was on his way "to my crib."
His preliminary blood alcohol content was 0.279, and after a judge
issued a warrant he was taken for a blood draw.
I think this one largely speaks for itself. Moving on.
A small blue spruce tree was stolen from a residential property in the
2600 block of East Oakwood Road between 3:30 p.m. May 14 and 3:30 p.m.
May 15. This is the second occurrence of tree theft at the residence in
less than one week.
Let me see if I understand this. Someone is coming into this yard and stealing trees, right? So, either they're digging large enough holes to pull the trees out of the ground whole, or they're chopping them down... And no one has witnessed this? Seems shady to me.
Police and firefighters responded to a fire alarm at Tanglewood
Apartments, 1785 W. Meyer Lane, at 5:43 a.m. May 16. An officer spoke to
a resident who stated his wife accidentally triggered the alarm as she
attempted to hit a cockroach that was climbing up the wall near the fire
alarm. An officer spoke with the manager, and he confirmed there was a
problem with bugs at the building.
For the record, Hubby and I used to live at Tanglewood. All I can say is ewwwwwwwwwwww!
A woman was arrested for spitting in the face of an employee of Hot
Topic at Mayfair, 2500 N. Mayfair Road, at 8:53 May 14. She said she was
mad at the employee for calling her "ghetto."
In the woman's defense, the employee really shouldn't be insulting customers. In the employee's defense, she was probably pretty ghetto.
And now, because springtime = animals being crazy...
Police responded to a report of a large turtle in the street on
Freistadt Road and River Lane at 10:50 a.m. May 14. The turtle was
pushed into the ditch so that regular traffic could resume.
That must've been a big ass turtle. I mean, if I was in the middle of the street, I don't think it would stop traffic...
A resident in the W143 N9600 block of Amber Drive called police after
she found a yellow and black snake in her front yard at 11:55 a.m. May
15. Upon arrival, the responding officer observed a large grass snake,
about 21/2 to 3 feet in length, disappear under a group of bushes. The
officer advised the resident to call an exterminator or purchase snake
Is snake repellent a thing? (A Google search indicates that yes, apparently it is.)
A boa constrictor was found in the front yard of a residence in the
12000 block of West Layton Avenue about 11:30 a.m. May 15. By the time
police arrived, the resident had the snake in a bag, which officers took
to the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Center.
Sir/Ma'am, I'm not sure how you managed to get the boa in the bag... But well done. Well fucking done.
*I say this only because I imagine it's probably an 18-20 year old who hit a 16 year old, you know? More than likely, it's not like some parent was beating the crap out of their 5 year old... Nothing funny about that shit.
