Police Dispatch



DEC. 1, 2:26 A.M.

A man displayed extremely jovial behavior while being chased down, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Deputies were contacted regarding a shirtless man screaming at nobody in particular at an intersection. They found the man crouching behind a truck; when he began to flee, a deputy chased him. During the chase, the man reportedly yelled, "Wee, wee, wee!" while running. He eventually ran into a gate, which broke and sent him sprawling to the ground, with the deputy falling on top of him.

As he was being handcuffed, the man laughed constantly "in a very unusual and almost disturbing way," according to the report. "It was not a normal laugh."

When deputies questioned him, the man began spitting, causing deputies to place a hood over his head. The Tucson Fire Department was called, and the man was taken to a hospital for treatment of the abrasions he'd suffered, as well as other possible issues. While at the hospital, he babbled, cursed and yelled, and was generally uncooperative.

"It appeared as if he was speaking English words," a deputy reported, "but he was using them out of context and did not make any sense."

At one point, the subject burped and attempted to breathe into the face of a fire-department member.

It turned out that the gate the man crashed into was on his mother's property. The mother told deputies that earlier that day, her son, who had apparently been drinking heavily, had spontaneously started punching a man who was at the home to demonstrate how to use some recently purchased workout equipment.

The subject was booked on multiple charges.



NOV. 30, 10:32 A.M.

A debtor managed to lose his drugs as well as his vehicle after the latter was repossessed, a PCSD report stated.

A man with a vehicle-repossession company reclaimed a white Buick from a Tucson man behind on payments, according to the report. When the man realized his car was missing, he called the repo company and said he had $500 in the glove compartment. He said he wanted to make sure it was going to be there for him to pick up later.

An employee of the repossession company went to check the car for the money—and found something green, but it wasn't cash. The company called law enforcement, and when deputies checked the glove compartment, they found a package of marijuana, as well as several plastic baggies and a scale.

The report didn't state what happened to the former owner of the car.
