Chattanooga Police got a report that a dwarf dressed in all purple was involved in a disorder.

Sure enough, they found a dwarf dressed in all purple standing in the middle of E. 26th Street.

Another man said he and Kennth Thompson had been in a verbal dispute.

He said Kennth had threatened to "jump up and kick me in the back of my neck."

An officer advised the two to cool it.

A couple on James Avenue were in a heated argument.

The man said the lady was just someone he was doing some home repair work for.

A woman told police she has started getting text messages from a woman who thinks she is running around with her man.

With some curse words added, the woman sending the texts told the other woman to "stay away from my man."

The woman getting the texts sent back this query, "What is his name?"

The accusing woman replied, "Joe."

The woman getting the texts said the only Joe she knows is her uncle.
