KING OF SPADES
SOUTH WORDEN ROAD, THREE POINTS, MAY 21, 1:08 P.M.
A drunk man brandished a shovel and scoffed at law enforcement, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.
Deputies responded to a call describing a man walking up the road and threatening people with a gun. The reportee said the man had been driving up and down the road and skidding his tires; later, he emerged from his vehicle and told the reportee, "I'm going to kick your ass."
One deputy heard the subject "yelling and rambling"; he was soon found making his way dangerously down the side of State Route 286 (though he appeared so drunk that he could hardly walk).
The subject reportedly ducked behind an abandoned refrigerator before emerging with a shovel and making a threatening gesture. After the deputy firmly commanded him to drop the shovel, he immediately complied. He possessed no gun but did have a large, sheathed knife.
The subject complained that he'd been having problems with his neighbors, accusing them of puncturing one of his vehicle's tires with a nail.
When one deputy informed him he was under arrest, the subject called him a "motherfucker" and rookie, saying the deputy didn't know what he was doing and that he hoped the deputy's "kids would die, that (his) wife would die, and that (he) would die a terrible death." He then said that "karma was a bitch," and the deputy would "get (his)" in the end. He repeated this over and over on the way to jail, where he was booked for disorderly conduct.
FROM METH TO WEEDS
WEST CAMINO VELASQUEZ, GREEN VALLEY MAY 19, 11:56 A.M.
A man was arrested for allegedly littering into a neighbor's yard, a PCSD report stated.
Deputies responded to a Green Valley home whose owner said she'd been sitting peacefully on her property, smoking a cigarette, when she saw her neighbor pitch a bunch of weeds into her yard. She said he also purposefully sprayed her window with water from a hose.
Deputies found that the outside ledge adjacent to the window was indeed wet. They also saw a small pile of relatively fresh weeds in the woman's yard.
The neighbor denied throwing the weeds, saying the wind had been blowing with gusts of up to 30 mph. However, one deputy noted that the slight breeze didn't seem like it could have moved the weeds.
One deputy mentioned in the report that he'd been called to the neighborhood before, and that the subject had previously admitted that he used to deal and use methamphetamine.
The neighbor was arrested for criminal littering and disorderly conduct.
