Police Blotter: Feather-Clad Woman Takes to the Street

Also, a horse runs wild in traffic, and the magic box is talking.

The floor show extended into the streets over the weekend, and we're guessing the talent might have some explaining to do to the youngest witnesses.

An informant called the Orange County Sheriff's Department early Wednesday morning to report that a woman wearing a black feathered dress and a bandanna was dancing in the middle of Santa Margarita Parkway.

The dancing woman’s three young children were watching her from the sidewalk.

Deputies escorted the family home.

The call came in around 3 a.m. on Wednesday, from the 22100 block of El Paseo.

Plenty of horsepower in traffic

You can certainly watch the big horse races on one of the more than 20 screens at Friend Sports Tavern, but late Monday night one could catch the ponies—well, one of them, anyway—galloping freely in traffic on Plano Trabuco Road. The horse eventually found his way near the Dove Canyon Center.

The call came in around 10:48 p.m. on Monday, from Plano Trabuco Road and Alas de Paz.

The voices weren't in her head

Deputies were called to assist a woman who reported to OCSD that someone had turned on her television. Worse, she could hear male and female voices coming from inside the set.

The call was made Sunday, 12:08 p.m., form the 30800 block of La Miranda.
