Police Dispatch



A Green Valley couple were incited to profanity after receiving lewd texts from a "high-powered gangster" who threatened to start a "street war" with them, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

The wife showed a deputy two anonymous texted photos she had received. One photo was blurry and its subject couldn't be determined, but it included the caption "Open your pussy."

The other photo clearly showed a penis, with the caption "This is for my haters."

The texter's phone number hadn't been blocked and the husband told deputies he had called the number and left a voicemail saying, "Don't start shit with me and my family, and don't fucking send pictures like that to my wife."

The normally placid man had apparently succumbed to extreme shock and anger, using language completely out of character for him, according to his wife.

The husband said he later received a text saying, "Don't mess with me, puto. You don't want to start a street war with me." The text was signed "HPG" (reportedly for high-powered gangster).

The couple said they had one suspect in mind, a young man they'd recently fired from their restaurant who was definitely capable of sending lewd texts. They said he had been fired for harassing female co-workers.

A deputy called the number from which the texts had been sent but received no answer. The deputy advised the couple to call the Sheriff's Department again if they were subjected to further harassment.



A booze-fueled domestic tiff ended with a fuming husband's arrest, a PCSD report said.

Deputies received a call about an intoxicated man arguing with his wife, who threw water at him and threatened to burn his clothing.

When deputies arrived at the scene, the husband said they'd been arguing over bills and that his wife had hit him. He didn't mention any threats to set his clothing afire but he reeked of liquor and spewed profanities throughout questioning.

The wife admitted to tossing a small amount of water at her husband but she adamantly denied smacking him. She said he'd called her a "bitch," "cunt" and "whore" and was generally violent and abusive, and once threw a chair across the kitchen.

The husband was taken to jail on suspicion of domestic violence and disorderly conduct. On the way he became increasingly belligerent and told a deputy that he was a "motherfucker" and that he would sue the deputy and the Sheriff's Department. Then he declared that once a judge freed him (which he said he was sure would be soon), he planned to take up residence in the deputy's home.
