Wants more whiskey
Police say a Butte woman was highly intoxicated and started to cry because “she wanted more whiskey,” but she wasn’t arrested until she began swearing at officers.
Someone called police about a drunk woman outside on North Excelsior Avenue around 6 p.m. Tuesday. She had reportedly been knocking on people’s doors searching for more alcohol, police say.
Police spoke with the woman, 57-year-old Laurie Lynn Catalino, and say she started crying because she wanted more whiskey. They were going to take her to St. James Health Care to get checked out but she started screaming at officers and refused to go.

She was booked on a misdemeanor complaint of failure to disperse and was still behind bars late Wednesday morning.
Children wandering about
Someone found a 3-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy by themselves on West Maryland Street on Aug. 24 and said they were hungry and unkempt.
The resident took them in, called police, and officers determined they lived in the 200 block of East Second Street. They went to the house and found out the mother had called to report her children missing, but had waited at least 45 minutes to do so.
Something similar had happened recently so a warrant was drawn up and the mother, Taressa Rose Sanchez, 27, was booked Monday on a misdemeanor complaint of endangering/abandonment/neglect. She was released a short time later on her own recognizance.
