Police Blotter: Woman Who Can't Bum Cigarette Tosses Rock Through Window; Cabbie Says He Never Gets Fully Paid For Trips To Address On Roanoke Avenue

Sunday, May 26, 2019

Police referred a dispute about a cigarette at a residence on Gadd Road. A woman wanted to file a police report on her window being broken. She said her acquaintance was over at her house and asked her and her friends for a cigarette. She said no one had a cigarette to give the acquaintance, "which apparently made her extremely upset." She "stormed out of the apartment and picked up a rock, throwing it through the kitchen window breaking the glass." She then got into her white Chevy Tahoe and sped off. She did not have the woman's phone number or date of birth and did not want to press charges.

There was a disorder at the Brainerd Walmart. A woman said she regularly parks her truck in a certain spot in the Walmart parking lot that was occupied by another truck that day. She said she knocked on the other truck's driver door, though the driver was asleep. She said he became angered and started being disrespectful towards her. The man said he was sleeping and got upset because he was very tired and believes that she is not entitled to the parking spot. Police asked if he could just move his truck to a different spot and continue sleeping. He complied, then left.

Fortunately for him, he came in front ... (click for more)
