Police Dispatch 



AUG. 25, 7:22 A.M.

A man found running through some bushes while dressed only in shorts—which appeared to be soaked with urine—told sheriff's deputies that his friends had removed the rest of his clothing as a joke after he passed out.

A deputy responded to a call about a man lying on the pavement on a street corner, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The deputy found the man running through some bushes near the corner. The man, who reeked of alcohol, was shirtless and had no shoes or socks on, although one sock was found in a pocket of his shorts, the report said. The man told the deputy he had been at a party when he passed out. He said he awakened to find that his friends had played a practical joke on him.

The deputy told the man he was clearly intoxicated, and that it was not OK to wander around the neighborhood half-dressed when morning walkers were out, and children were on their way to a nearby school.

The deputy also found a glass pipe in the man's pocket. The man claimed his friends planted it on him.

The man was arrested on suspicion of possessing drug paraphernalia.



AUG. 20, 11:21 A.M.

A man accused of throwing rocks at homes in a trailer park claimed he was making art, a PCSD report said.

A caller said a man was "going crazy," screaming and throwing rocks at trailers (some of which were later found to be damaged).

The deputy found the subject walking toward a different trailer park. When asked to stop, the man said, "No." He was then detained.

The man denied that he had been throwing rocks; he said he instead had been banging them together "to get the sugars off the rocks so he could use the rocks for artwork," the report said. The man also told the deputy he was very upset, because the floors of his residence stayed dirty even when he tried to clean them.

A different deputy interviewed the man (described as nonsensical and sweating profusely) about a fire he'd apparently started in his front yard. The man said he'd been burning his trash, because the trash bin he usually used was locked.

Neighbors described the subject as a "nightmare" and possibly on drugs. The man's girlfriend showed deputies a hole in a wall that she said was caused by the man hitting it with a hammer for no apparent reason.

The man was arrested on multiple charges.
