On Christmas evening, Lawrence Cotter, 69, was arrested on the 2000 block of Florida Avenue for driving under the influence.
Cotter, who admitted to drinking wine all day, decided to go buy some cigarettes. When he returned, he decided to park his car in the garage. The problem, however, was there were people standing in the garage.
So, off to jail he went.
Just can't stay away
Police officers warned Dawn Lockwood of Butte on Nov. 23 to stay away from a residence on the 1100 block of Farrell. She was arrested Christmas Eve morning for being at that same residence.
Lockwood was charged with two counts of criminal process to property and one count of probation violation.
Men with guns
Calls to the police station regarding “a man with a gun” happened not once but twice.
Just after 2 p.m. Christmas Eve, officers were called to the 2200 block of Harrison Avenue, but could not find anyone with a gun, and there were no tracks in the snow to follow, either.
You have free articles remaining.
Shortly before 3:30 Thursday morning, officers received another call, this time at a bonfire on the outskirts of town. Again, the man had left the area by the time officers arrived and they were unable to locate him.
Dogs the cause
Neighbors on the 2400 block of South Main Street called to complain about two individuals in their neighborhood arguing for at least 45 minutes.
According to reports, the individuals were not arguing with each other, they were screaming at their dogs.
Protection order violation
William Pendtland, 49, was arrested around 5 p.m. Christmas Eve on the 800 block of Colorado Street for violating a protection order that was put in that morning.
