Westlake Police: Animal Antics

Westlake Police logoIt was Man vs. Beasts in Westlake’s Police Blotter this week. Who act worse? Humans or animals? You be the judge.

Animal antics: 5-6 chickens flew the coop and were scurrying around a Melibee Dr. man’s front lawn on Sept. 5 at 6:24 p.m.. The home roost of these yardbirds could not be determined by the patrolman; the Animal Control Officer was to follow up.

Drunk Out Tonight: A 22-year-old Elyria man decided to urinate into a large flower pot outside a Main Street. bar on Sept. 11 at 12:30 a.m. in full view of other patrons and a passing patrol officer. He was arrested for DCI. The plant seems none the worse for wear.

Bearly Believable: A Westhill Dr. man reported that 2 bears were wrestling in his backyard at 3:10 a.m. on Sept. 9. Officers found no sign of the ursine brawlers.

All in the Family: An intoxicated 19-year-old Canterbury Rd. woman fought with her 50-year-old mother and friend (20-year old Avon Lake woman) on Sept. 6 at 1:56 a.m. She bit the friend and hit mom in the face after an argument over child care and a supposed theft of marijuana. She was charged with DCI, DV, and Assault.

Cat Lady: A 51-year-old Westlake woman wearing a blanket for pants hit a Cahoon Rd. utility pole while OVI on Sept. 12 at 4:46 p.m. She was taken to St. John Medical Center for chest pains; she was also cited for Failure to Control and Open Container. Her cat passenger was placed in the city kennel. She checked herself out of the hospital against medical advice at 6:33 a.m. the next day and walked home in her blanket and hospital gown.

Wandering Eyes

An intoxicated 57-year-old Dublin, Ohio man was arrested for DCI on Sept. 11 at 11:56 p.m,  at a Main St. bar. Staff has kicked him out twice previously for annoying other patrons in the restroom. He was staring at another customer’s genitals in this instance and is now banished from the business.

And the winner is…..We give this one to the human suspects in this week’s round of Man vs. Beast. After all, the animals don’t know any better.

Man vs. Mankind

The rest of this week’s police blotter is filled with the usual mayhem. Lock your cars and homes when away, folks.
