Booked three days in a row
For the third day in a row, a Butte woman was arrested for causing disturbances and refusing to leave.
Police say Amanda Jeaux Rodriguez, 30, was arrested on July 1 at St. James Healthcare and arrested on July 2 and July 3 for harassing workers at the Butte Pre-release Center in Uptown Butte and refusing to leave.
For the Wednesday incident, she was booked on misdemeanor complaints of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. She was still in jail late Friday morning and police were seeking to have her undergo a mental evaluation.
A Butte man was arrested late Wednesday afternoon after his mother said he had threatened to burn down her garage.
Police responded to a house in the 1700 block of Thomas Street after a woman said her son was threatening her. When they arrived, the mother was gone and the son, 35-year-old Michael Albert Lovshin, told officers it was just an argument.
But the mother, 71, returned and told police he had threatened to burn down the garage and she was afraid for her safety. He was booked for misdemeanor partner-family member assault-reasonable apprehension and was still in jail late Friday morning.
Running from police
Residents in the area of Galena and Alabama streets called police around 3:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon saying a shirtless man was trying to get into vehicles.
When police spotted the man, Michael William Mallo Jr., 30, of Butte, he took off running before obeying commands to get on his knees. Once down, he took off running again and police hit him with a Taser as he tried to scale a fence.
He was arrested on misdemeanor complaints of resisting arrest and obstructing a peace officer and was still behind bars late Friday morning.
