West Mile Wide and North Sandario roads, Nov. 27, 12:39 a.m.
Deputies responding to a domestic-violence call found a man sitting on top of his father, who was on the ground outside with his hands taped behind his back, according to a PCSD report.
The wife of the man who had been restrained said she had taken his money out of his wallet before he went to a bar, in order to stop him from getting drunk. He came home a short time later demanding his money and started throwing items around, she added. The wife said she and her son cornered her husband and used white medical tape to restrain his arms. They also tried to tape his feet together, but he was able to rip it off, she said.
The man went limp when deputies attempted to take him to a patrol car, after cutting the tape from his hands with a knife. He began "to cough and spit and was passing gas," a deputy wrote. The man also refused to answer any questions.
The report said that the husband "started hacking and spitting" inside the patrol car after he had been arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and assault, prompting a deputy to place a spit hood over his head.
Deputies booked the husband into Pima County Adult Detention Center.
A Net Gain of One
West Wetmore and North Flowing Wells roads, Nov. 26, 5:52 p.m.
A woman phoned authorities to report that her bike was stolen from her garage--and two other bicycles were left in its place, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.
About an hour after noticing the bicycle switch--and before a deputy arrived to speak with her--the woman said a man came to the door asking to take both of the newfound bicycles. The man reportedly told her that his friends had left the bikes because they were "on the run" from the police.
The woman said she took a picture of the man on her cellular phone before he hopped on one of the bicycles and rode off. She said she felt it was suspicious that the man wanted to take the bikes just after hers was stolen.
A deputy told the woman to call PCSD the next day about having the remaining bicycle and a printout of her cell-phone picture picked up as evidence.
While You Were Sleeping
UA Area Dec. 4, 3:26 a.m.
An unidentified man went on an early-morning windshield-breaking spree in a dormitory parking lot, according to a report from the University of Arizona Police Department.
The suspect reportedly used a baseball bat to shatter the windshields of eight cars parked in the Arizona Sonora Residence Hall parking lot at 910 E. Fifth St.
He drove off in a black vehicle. Witnesses were unable to get a good look at the man.
UAPD left notes on all the cars, asking their owners to contact them.
