Complaint, Rich & Skyview; caller reports that his daughter and friends were "lying in the middle of the road" when an SUV came speeding down the road and parked in a driveway nearby. Advised (the driver or the kids or the caller?)

During the reporting period, 15 citations and 13 warnings were issued. Four erratic drivers were reported.


Georgia has the most aggressive holiday drivers, according to GasBuddy. They must be really aggressive if we don't make it to top 10.

This week, a 9-year-old boy threw the first “legal” snowball in Severance, Colo. It was the culmination of a campaign the boy, Dane Best, had led to repeal a nearly century-old ban on snowball throwing in Severance, a town of about 6,000 people about 50 miles north of Denver.

Police Log for Week of June 9 - 15, 2019

Last week's lowlights include a rock party on Washington, a parade of one on Gretchen and one frustrated and creative driver solves the rush hour traffic problem down town (no he didn't shoot out the lights). Officers are taught to place a hand on the car as they approach. Why? Because if in the course of the stop the officer is murdered and the driver takes off, the officer's finger prints on the car will prove that he stopped the car.
