Overheard on the police beat

“I’m looking at your history of warrants, and it is not a good history.”

“No, they’re not injured, they’re just really drunk.”

“Was he cooperative though?”

“Other than not coming out when the police showed up, yeah.”

“He has a black jacket, average height and is smoking drugs.”

“The female is upset and throwing things out the window.”

“It was a little creepy, but you can’t arrest people for being creepy.”

“She said she was going to look at it from a new angle at the complainant, so she’s not mad at you anymore.”

“Boy am I glad.”

“Someone called about a coyote in Everett and wanted an update. I told her that coyotes live everywhere, and she hung up on me.”

“He is wearing a green shirt and sweat pants. He is destroying the reporting party’s house.”

“This guy’s story is bouncing all around, but what he’s come to now is that he was up there with them.”
