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.

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.

^ 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.

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.

A couple stupid criminal stories:

LAKEVILLE WEEK OF OCT. 4-10 Driving violations. An officer stopped a vehicle for speeding at Cedar Avenue and Glacier Way. The female driver couldn’t find her identification but told the officer she was 35 and gave a name that turned out to be attached to an arrest warrant. After hearing this, she told the officer she was the 35-year-old woman’s 37-year-old sister — who also had a warrant out for her arrest. The officer arrested the woman on the warrant, along with charges of driving after license revocation and giving false information to police.

RICHFIELD SEPT. 25 Theft. Fragrances valued at $1,627 were stolen from Ulta Beauty, 1050 W. 78th St. The suspect left behind his shoes, hat and cellphone.

Heard a noise this afternoon. Not unusual, the guy next door is often loading/unloading things, no big deal. But my wife thought this one sounded different, and it was. Two vehicles ran into each other, a front corner to front corner head on. Now this is a basic tract, 25 speed limit and a 45 degree turn just before what is pictured. Which people like to cut tight. But man, how the f do you head on in a 25 zone. The minivan is probably a total, the Toyo truck is definitely munched with 20 degrees negative camber on the RF wheel. It is off camber, but jeez, don't be stupid. :facepalm: Local cops did their investigation, I don't even think airbags went off and the whole thing was cleared up in just under 2 hours. :shock: 2 hours? I've been driving totaled cars in 2 hours before.

Police in Corvallis, Oregon, said Dylan Milota was high on marijuana when he crashed the 2019 Tesla S he was driving at more than 100 mph into a utility pole on Nov. 17, breaking the pole and spraying hundreds of small batteries through the windows of two nearby residences. One landed on a bed, starting a fire in the bedsheets, KMTR reported. A tire from the car struck the second story of a nearby apartment building so forcefully it broke water pipes inside the wall, destroying the bathroom on the other side and causing flooding in the lower level, police said. Citizens were warned not to pick up any stray batteries, which can stay hot for up to 24 hours and release toxic fumes. Milota fled on foot but was quickly apprehended and charged with various offenses. [KMTR, 11/19/2020]

Stillwater, MN
April 4

A 10-year-old boy in Stillwater who took his parents' minivan and led police on a chase said he was going to buy Cheerios.

The unusual incident happened around 9:30 p.m. Sunday evening, according to a police report, with Stillwater PD officer noticing the boy driving the Chrysler minivan, and activating their emergency lights.

What followed was a chase that at times saw the child reach speeds of 50 mph, and involved the van driving through an intersection and up the embankment of a residential yard in reverse.

Police were eventually able to place a squad car in front of the minivan, ending the chase without any injuries.

When the boy was questioned, he told police his parents were sleeping, had no idea he'd taken their van, and he was heading to the Stillwater Target to buy some Cheerios.
