Colorado Springs - Downtown On 12-07-19, numerous Colorado Springs Police Officers were working the Festival of Lights Parade in the downtown area. Just prior to 6:25 PM, two adult females decided to lie in the middle of Tejon Street just south of Colorado Ave, causing the parade to come to a stop. The parade was stopped due to their actions for about 5 minutes. After given a lawful order to move by officers they refused and were subsequently arrested. They had to be carried out of the parade route by officers. They were later served and released at a local Police Station for 3.2.409, Unlawful Acts; 9.2.104, Obstructing Passage or Assembly, and 9.3.101, Resistance/Interference with Public Official.

Man in a wheelchair attempts to rob a Sioux Falls casino

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO.com) --

A man in a wheelchair attempted to rob a casino yesterday (Thursday) afternoon in Sioux Falls.

Jame Michael Eitreim, 60, from Sioux Falls, is charged with second-degree robbery.

Eitreim rolled into the Golden Coin Casino at Russell and Kiwanis.

He told the clerk he had a gun.

A patron noticed the clerk acting oddly.

The patron went over to the man in the wheelchair and asked if he could pass.

For some reason, the robber said just wheel me outside.

The clerk then locked the casino's door.

Police found the robber outside of the casino.

No one was hurt.

I fear the neighbor will make the police blotter. She does like to imbibe a bit. So a couple of years ago she bought a 3rd car to go with about a 65 Pontiac and her 128i. To take the dogs to the river. Except it's turned into her designated car. You know, like sometimes there will be a designated driver? I guess it's a disposable car. :facepalm: Early 90s Izuzu Rodeo that would look right at home at Pick and Pull.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A man’s attempted carjacking was foiled Thursday morning by a remote start.

A woman was walking to her running car in the parking lot of the Hy-Vee on East 10th Street when a man pushed her inside and over to the passenger seat.

He allegedly threatened her with a knife. But when he tried driving away in the already running car, it stopped because keys were not in the ignition. He then left. No one was hurt.

February 5, 2020 - Stetson Hills patrol were called regarding a DUI driver in the area of N. Academy and Palmer Park. Information was given that the suspect was driving into on-coming lanes of traffic and running red lights.

Officers located the vehicle in the area of Okeechobee and Palmer Park, and attempted to stop the driver, who made a rude hand gesture at them and continued driving. Officers observed the suspect driving into on-coming lanes of traffic. Officers pursued the suspect and were given authorization to conduct a TVI. Officers TVI'd the suspect's vehicle in the 6000 block of Palmer Park Bl. and took the suspect into custody without further incident.

^ Speaking of crazy drivers...the radio station I listen to on the way home from work broadcasts regular traffic reports, while they monitor the live traffic cameras in the Twin Cities metro area. Today, while the guy was giving his update he described an event that was happening as he watched: someone crashed into the center barrier on a busy freeway, hard enough to deploy the airbags. They spun around and stopped were facing traffic, but then did a U turn (into that heavy traffic) and continued on down the road, crashed car and airbags and all.

Officers made contact and observed him to be in a tree approximately 30 feet up where he balanced on a branch over frozen water. Officers attempted to convince the male to come down but were unsuccessful. Several hours passed during which time officers learned the male was under the influence of methamphetamine and was likely suffering from frost bite and hypothermia. A bucket truck was utilized to safely recover him from the tree so that he could be transported to an area hospital. Criminal charges are pending. Summary - Arrest Warrant to follow

Our boring MN suburb has been defiled by street racers last weekend and the week before. I'm being sarcastic about defilement but you would think a holy war started from the soccer mom outcry on facebook. Of course there is a facebook page for our community and one for the police dept! A facebook page where you are more likely to see a lost cat post than an alert of a hundred or more street racers taking over a local road.

The police chief is actually pretty cool and frequently posts with updates on petty theft and an 80's movie quote to lighten the mood. But the street racing thread became an all out shitstorm with over 400 comments including taunts from some of the alleged street racers.

Not a crime report, but a weird story nonetheless.

Man dies after eating black licorice daily

A construction worker’s love of black licorice wound up costing him his life. Eating a bag and a half every day for a few weeks threw his nutrients out of whack and caused the 54-year-old man’s heart to stop, doctors reported last week. “Even a small amount of licorice you eat can increase your blood pressure a little bit,” said Dr. Neel Butala, a cardiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital who described the case in the New England Journal of Medicine. The problem is glycyrrhizic acid, found in black licorice and in many other foods and dietary supplements containing licorice root extract. It can cause dangerously low potassium and imbalances in electrolytes.

"Roesler is a former morning anchor for KSFY-TV and is now the morning anchor for WIS-TV in Columbia, South Carolina."

I suspect she will be soon known as the former morning anchor for WIS-TV.

Ouch. I've seen people hit over the head with a beer bottle and it ain't pretty.
