Beer drinking, pool stick swinging family problems
On Sept. 1, police were called around 11 p.m. to a residence in the 7000 block of Pimlico Drive in Windsor on reports of a disturbance between a father and son. Upon their arrival, the 18-year-old son said that when he was inside the home, his father tried to punch him and even swung a pool stick at him, breaking a chandelier. Police then contacted the father, who admitted to getting upset and swinging the pool stick and damaging some property. He said his son, with the help of his friends, drank all of the beer the father had recently purchased.
The house belonged to the father’s other son. Police worked with both the father and son involved in the argument and told them to simply stay away from each other for the rest of the night. The father said he planned to move away as soon as he could get his trailer out of storage and take apart his pool table. Police couldn’t force either party to leave that night, and both parties said they understood. The son maintained that the beer actually was a house-warming gift from a neighbor.
Parrot problems: On Sept. 2 around 11:27 a.m., police were called to the 300 block of 5th Street on a report of a missing 2-foot-tall Macaw. Police met with a woman who said her bird flew away shortly after watching the Harvest Festival Parade. Minutes later, someone else posted on Facebook that a bird had been found, but when the bird’s owner said it was hers, the woman said she wanted the police to act as mediators. Police then transported the bird’s owner to the woman who found it, where the bird was returned without incident.
Water balloon culprits remain at large: On Aug. 30 around 1 p.m., police were dispatched to Annapolis Drive and Highland Meadows Parkway on a report of teenage boys who were throwing water balloons at passing cars. When police arrived, they did not see any teenage boys but did find a man doing yard work nearby who said he saw four teenage boys without shirts running in the area. Police checked the area for 15 minutes, but they never saw anyone who matched the description.
