Police Dispatch



MAY 7, 7:45 P.M.

A drunk woman got belligerent and nonsensical upon arrest, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Responding to a domestic-violence report called in by neighbors, the reporting deputy went to the subject's home to find her already in handcuffs and in the custody of another deputy. She was screaming and yelling, repeatedly calling the other deputy an asshole. When the other deputy went inside to talk to her husband, the subject turned to the reporting deputy and repeated, "He's an asshole," referring to the other deputy.

She then attempted to walk away and screamed in the reporting deputy's face when he restrained her. She was obviously drunk, the report said. She could not stop screaming, "That's it. I'm going to kill my husband." Asked why she would say that, she responded, "He's dead."

When deputies tried to escort her down the driveway, she sat on the ground and said that she was going to sue them. "You are going to pay me a million dollars!" she screamed. She told one deputy that she was "good friends and neighbors" with Barbara LaWall, and that after she made a complaint about him, his "job would not be there for tomorrow."

Her husband said she had been making threats to him when the neighbors called; she had been going through periods of binge-drinking and was on some kind of medication. She was arrested for threats and disorderly conduct.



MAY 7, 2 P.M.

A philanthropic woman apparently had paranoid delusions about a home invader after donating a large sum of money, a PCSD report stated.

Dispatched to a suspicious-activity call, a deputy met with a female homeowner who said that the past Tuesday, she had heard footsteps on her roof.

Later, she said, her phone started ringing for a long time until she answered it; she then heard "horrible" noises that she could not reproduce. She indicated to the deputy that she knew the roof-walker and caller was an accountant from Texas who had swindled her out of $283,000 and was working to turn her own lawyer against her. She believed that this man had planted some kind of "listening device" on her roof or in her residence.

Law-enforcement research revealed that she had donated the sum of money she mentioned to a foundation; no evidence of financial exploitation was uncovered.

Asked to check her roof, the reporting deputy found no signs that a person had been up there, nor did he find a "listening device."
