Mauled By My Sister

Ina and Thornydale Roads, July 30, 1:45 p.m.

A woman checked into urgent care after allegedly being bitten repeatedly by her sister, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

The woman said her sister, who has a history of violence, had recently started staying with her in Tucson after "burning all her bridges" in California.

She told a deputy that her husband was driving her and her sister in a pickup truck when the conversation turned to her sister's son, who is in his 40s and allegedly has a drinking problem that makes him miss work.

Her sister began biting her after things got heated, the woman said.

A deputy noted several "significant bite marks" on the woman's arms and hand. She said she has leukemia that's in remission, causing her "to bruise and injure easily." According to the report, she looked like she had been beaten, but she claimed it was the result of her medical condition and forcefully defending herself against her sister's bites.

The woman didn't want to press charges. She reportedly told the deputy that she was only contacting authorities because her sister threatened to do so first to "make different claims."

Next Time, Use An Accent

Ina Road and La Cholla Boulevard, July 28, 7:08 p.m.

According to a PCSD report, a woman suspected her ex-boyfriend of ordering 30 floral arrangements and fruit baskets in her name from a flower shop.

The woman found out about the order when Inglis Florist called to confirm it. She said she has a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend--he's also suing her--and that he was likely to blame.

The woman gave the employee who took the order her ex-boyfriend's phone number to call. Someone else answered the phone, the employee said, but she still recognized a man's voice in the background as the culprit's.

There was no further information at the time of the report.

Early Bird Gets Egged

Orange Grove and Thornydale Roads, July 25, 10:31 a.m.

A manager at a Sonic Drive-In said a driver egged the business twice, once striking a customer, a PCSD report said.

According to the shift manager, a man driving what she believed was a small, blue Bronco sped through the parking lot about 10:15 p.m. and threw several eggs at the building.

The manager said the man, who she described as "heavyset" with black, spiky hair, returned to throw several eggs about 5:40 a.m. This time, she said, he also struck a customer.

There may have been "two females" in the backseat, the manager stated.

Deputies traced the license plate number. They didn't contact the vehicle's owner at the time of the report.
