Police Blotter: Petty Argument Grows Into Neighborhood Event

Also, a woman is annoyed by her neighbor’s target practice.

An initial argument about trash cans turned into a neighborhood dispute over unleashed dogs early Monday morning.

A woman was upset because her neighbor yelled at her when she tried to move his trash cans. Both parties quickly cooled off and returned to their homes.

A little over an hour later, two men and two women were arguing outside of their homes, joined by two men, according to an informant. The group, which included the original combatants, were now arguing because one of them had their dog off of its leash.

The men separated the dogs and put them on their leashes. The original informant called the desk again, demanding to speak to a supervisor, because a deputy wouldn’t take a report for verbal assault. Deputies again visited the neighborhood, and took the report.

The first call came in around 7:30 a.m. on Monday, from Calle Arcos.  The second call came in around 9 a.m. on Monday, from Calle Arcos.

Quite often, actually. I hate it when that happens.
