A Rancho Santa Margarita man called the Orange County Sheriff's Department early Sunday morning to report that his wife was out of control, but before the morning was through, the man was in the pokey.
According to the blotter of the OCSD, the informant called on police services shortly after 1 a.m., and indicated his wife was out of control and threatening to kill herself at their El Morro home.
The man went on to say the wife wanted to throw herself down the stairs and that he was holding her down. The line then disconnected.
The woman was apparently upset over marital issues and deputies heard her say the man was "half drunk," according to the report. The man, who made the initial call at 1:06 a.m., was taken into custody because there was evidence of alleged domestic violence. He was released 13 hours later.
This guy thought he had carte blanche
A caller reported that someone had taken shopping carts and lined them up across the street. When the informant got out of his vehicle to move the hazard, someone yelled profanities at him. The agitated man could not be seen by the caller, who contacted police services Saturday, 10:11 p.m., from La Promesa and Alma Aldea.
Maybe he was one of Snow White's friends
Sometimes you can appear to be too doggone happy. A man wearing all black clothing was seen behind the residence of a caller. The man was going back and forth from the “woodsy area,” according to the report, and was whistling.
The call was made Sunday, 8:29 a.m., from the 32900 block of Brookseed Drive.
We've heard of getting egged
A caller called on sheriff deputies because his car got noodled. According to the report, an informant reported that someone threw noodles on the side of his car. Ultimately, there was no suspect and no damage to the car, except its pride, and a report wasn't taken.
The call came Sunday, 11:05 a.m., from Espolon.
