An officer checking behind houses in the 300 block of West 43rd Street in reference to complaints of drug use and prostitution, found a man and woman behind an abandoned house. The woman was lighting a glass pipe that appeared to be a crack pipe. She placed the pipe between herself and the man. The officer asked the man to hand him the pipe and lighter. The man had an apparent crack rock in his hand, which he tried to conceal. When he stood up, the officer found another crack pipe. The man was placed under arrest for possession of a controlled substance. He told officers, I was just trying to get a fat head job, and said he had bought the crack for the woman because she had promised oral sex in return. The woman was arrested for possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
A man stopped for a light at White Bluff and Montgomery Cross Road and three men entered his vehicle and demanded drugs. One produced a six-inch curved blade and told the man to drive. He drove to the parking lot of a nearby department store, grabbed a pocket knife and jumped out of the vehicle. He started for the store, but the suspect with the knife exited the car and began struggling with him. The man got away and went into the store to call police.
A White Bluff Road man and his live-in girlfriend began arguing over money and paying bills on time. The fight became heated, and the man grabbed the woman around the waist and pushed her. She fought back. The fight started in the kitchen and ended in a hallway. Her four children were present but not directly involved. EMS was called, and the man, who had scratches on his neck and a cut finger, was taken to the hospital for stitches. Then he was taken to jail and charged with simple battery. The woman had a bruise on her hand.
