Just randomly ran across this blog, which is “A selection of police blots from small-town papers”.
It’s pretty amusing reading. A couple of excerpts:
1. Goleta, CA
Following a circus rodeo act inside the Earl Warren Showgrounds, a man wearing a wet shirt doused in alcohol was having trouble leaving the arena. At 7:30 p.m. the obviously intoxicated man approached a patrolling deputy, but not before falling.
When the Spanish-speaking man, 33, was asked how long he’d been in the United States, he replied, “Three beers.” Unable to care for himself, he was arrested for public intoxication and taken to jail.
