All in the family
Things went awry among family members at a house in the 600 block of Alabama Street late Saturday afternoon.
Police responded to the disturbance and one man told officers that a relative, 26-year-old Tye Raphael Batterman, was coming at him so he picked up a chair and hit him in the face with it. There were other family members there, too.
Nobody was arrested for the fight but Batterman was taken to the hospital to get his injured nose checked out and then to jail for having an outstanding warrant out of Butte City Court. He was released about an hour later.
Ill-advised phone call
A Butte man called police saying his dog had been kidnapped but he ended up in jail because he had an outstanding warrant.
Police say Mark Steven Spolar, 38, was wanted for harassing a woman and was outside her house in the 2000 block of Locust Street when he called around 10 a.m. Sunday. Police recognized him when they pulled up and arrested him on an outstanding warrant for violation of a protection order.
The dog was inside the house and OK.

Police were assisting probation and parole officers in searching a house in the 600 block of Colorado Street early Friday afternoon and came across illegal drugs.
Two people on probation were inside, 34-year-old Jeanette Lynn Voss and 43-year-old Louis Wesley Salminen Jr., and police found small packets of suspected methamphetamine and heroin.
Both were arrested on felony complaints of possessing dangerous drugs and violating probation and remained behind bars as of late Monday morning.
Didn't know the others?
Someone called police about a group of teens breaking into cars in the 100 block of South Excelsior Avenue just after midnight Saturday.
Police caught two of them, both 15-year-old males, and had one transported to the Juvenile Detention Center in Great Falls because he was already on probation. The other one was released to his parents.
There were two other teens in the group, witnesses said, but the two who were caught said they didn’t know them.
