A man who was seen speeding 50 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone and almost hitting a family in a crosswalk along the 7000 block of Pacific Highway on Dec. 6 faces reckless driving charges. He admitted to the arresting officer that he had smoked marijuana before driving, but the police officer didn’t have backup to process the needed blood test and warrant for the more serious charge. The man had glassy eyes and a green-colored tongue as well. After being handcuffed, the man yelled for his passengers to video tape the arrest, going so far as to fling himself onto the side of the patrol car in a dramatic matter. He berated the officer with insults and found himself on his way to jail.
Booty calls can get complicated with you’re trying to repair a marriage. A man learned that lesson on Dec. 6, when his “ex -girlfriend” paid a visit to his house while his wife was home. The wife, who suspected burglary, called police as the “ex lover” drove away. Officers found the woman and learned she had been living in the house when the husband and wife were separated last summer and had continued to see the man while he was trying to repair his marriage. The man and his girlfriend apparently had “gotten together” the previous week. The man first denied knowing the woman, finally admitted that she was his ex-girlfriend but denied the current affair. Police left the case open, since there was no sign of a theft at the house. The girlfriend, however, was arrested for three warrants, including a felony forgery warrant out of Las Vegas.
