Police Log: Weekend Wrap-Up

This weekend Benicia Police helped one man disprove the theory that the more you drink, the smarter you get. They also arrested a number of people on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The Benicia Police had a busy weekend. They nabbed four suspected drunken drivers, quieted down a couple of parties and responded to every false alarm called in by the alarm companies.

12:46 a.m.: A 25-year-old Texas man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

9:44 a.m.: A suspicious vehicle was reported in the vicinity of West L Street. Police could not find the vehicle.

3:15 p.m.: A Riverview home was discovered to have been burglarized.

8:16 p.m.: A woman on West Third reported a suspicious person standing on her lawn. The person left before police arrived on the scene. A check of the area did not turn up a suspicious person.

8:18 p.m.: A 25-year-old was arrested on Cambridge on suspicion of grand theft and probation violation. The person went to jail in Fairfield.

11:06 p.m.: A father and son on West L Street were having a loud argument. They both were drunk and they both agreed to leave each other alone for the rest of the evening.

12:51 a.m.: A 46-year-old man was arrested on I-780. It was discovered there was a no-bail arrest warrant with his name on it. He was given a ride to jail.

1:10 a.m.: Police convinced the host of a party on Hillcrest to take it inside so the neighbors could get a bit of sleep.

2:02 a.m.: A 48-year-old Benicia woman was arrested on East Third Street on suspicion of drunk driving.

2:04 a.m.: Police responded to a call on East Second. The caller reported a verbal altercation between a man and a woman. The pair left the area before investigating officers got a chance to practice conflict resolution.

4:17 a.m.: A residential alarm on Dover went off for no apparent reason.

7:21 p.m.: A group of skateboarders were reported in a West J neighborhood. They must have been using the boards for transportation because they were gone when police arrived.

7:23 p.m.: A resident of East Fifth Street was asked to turn down the volume. 

8:55 p.m.: A Benicia man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and his passenger was arrested on a no-bail warrant.

10:53 p.m.: A 40-year-old Vallejo man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after being involved in a traffic collision on West K Street. If he had just waited 67 minutes to get behind the wheel, he would have been a 41-year-old man.

Sunday, Aug. 28, 2011

9:26 a.m.: The Benicia man who was cited and released at 8:55 p.m. Saturday night on suspicion of drunken driving was arrested again a mere 12-and-half hours later. The second arrest was for suspicion of being drunk in public on Southampton Road.

9:45 a.m.: A juvenile (we’ll assume it was a boy) was trying to remove the CO2 from a canister.  The police report did not give a reason why it was important to free the CO2.

12:39 p.m.: A resident on Warwick was warned about a loose dog.  The dog apparently lives at the Warwick address.

2:50 p.m.: Police stood by while a former resident of West L Street went back for some stuff. The stuff was still at the West L Street address. The retrieval went according to plan.

Sure would have liked to witness the interrogation of the canine.

Kate, I changed the wording on that one. Thanks for the catch.

The 10:53 p.m. DWI traffic accident was right in front of our house. Another example this year of motorists not yielding to the stop sign before plowing into a parked vehicle.

JB, even your police logs are entertaining. Love it!
