Police Dispatch



DEC. 25, 6:17 P.M.

A man who flashed the peace sign at several diners at an upscale restaurant combined it with some decidedly un-peaceful language, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Deputies were called to the Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort, 5601 N. Hacienda del Sol Road, where they found an elderly man who smelled strongly of alcohol sitting in the courtyard outside of the resort's restaurant. The man, whose speech was slurred, admitted to deputies that he had just slapped his girlfriend's brother in the face, because he believed the brother wasn't supporting his sister as he should. As a deputy prepared to read the man his Miranda rights, the man said, "I'm not going to fucking tell you anything."

At one point, the man suggested to the deputy that maybe the man should do something that would cause the deputy to shoot him. When asked why he would want the deputy to shoot him, the man would not reply.

As the deputy waited for backup, the man's manner fluctuated from polite and cooperative to angry and hostile. One of the deputies charged with watching the subject said that upon many occasions, when the subject saw people entering and exiting the restaurant, he would yell, "Fuck you!" while giving a peace sign.

After one guest—despite the peace-sign gesture—said, "Lock him up in a cell," the older male said, "Fuck you; come on," as if ready for a fight.

He was arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace.



DEC. 24, 1:50 PM.

A man reported death threats by a person he'd done drugs with, according to a PCSD report.

Deputies made contact with a "somewhat hysterical individual" to talk about a person nicknamed "Migs." The reportee said that "Migs" had kidnapped the reportee's friend, because "Migs" was seeking $500 that he was apparently owed.

The reportee said "Migs" had left threatening voicemails on his cell phone, such as, "You are done for," and, "I know where you and your lady lay your heads at night."

The reportee said he'd "done drugs" (including marijuana and methamphetamine) with "Migs." When deputies tried to reach "Migs" via telephone, he repeatedly hung up or wouldn't answer his phone.

They were continuing attempts to contact him at the conclusion of the police report.
