One of the best things about living in a small town is the NEWSPAPER--or, in the case of my town, the website, especially the "Local Drama" section. (They don't call it this. Officially, it's the "police report.") I found this amazing local drama among last month's reports, same day.
Item 1: Local woman is arrested for driving without headlights long after sundown. Officers notice a strong scent of alcohol, so they ask her to take the breathalizer test, and she fails. They then discover she has a long string of DUI arrests and a suspended drivers license. They take her car away from her ("for safekeeping") and send her home, apparently on foot.
Item 2: Local woman calls the police to come remove her teenager from the house. Officers explain that they can't just DO that, there is a procedure to follow, involving more phone calls, etc. Woman says, ok...no problem, she doesn't need any further help. Several hours later, officers are called back to the residence, which now lodges a disorderly person complaint--against the mother, who is standing outside of the residence YELLING and won't quit. Officers place her under arrest and take her to jail.
NOWIASKYOU, dept.: Which woman do YOU think should have spent the night in the slammer? Have you ever had a teenager?
