1200 block of S. Main Street, 12:30 a.m., Police pulled over a vehicle for driving recklessly. The driver said that he thought the vehicle in front of him was a bunch of kids so he was acting dumb. [MDR: I’m a little worried if the driver actually thought the vehicle in front of him “was a bunch of kids.” Notice, it doesn’t say, “was filled with a bunch of kids.” No, he thought the vehicle was the kids. That’s pretty scary! ]
J Williams Road, 10:35 p.m., A caller reported that someone placed a dead deer on her car during the night. [MDR: Either that or a dying deer jumped up on her car right before giving up the ghost.]
100 block of West Street, Comfort, 4:32 p.m., A caller reported that her purse was stolen from her unlocked vehicle. [MDR: Note to self: Always lock car when leaving purse in it. Another note to self: Don’t leave purse in car. Period.]
37000 block of W. Interstate 10, 12:39 a.m., Police responded to a 911 hang-up call. The caller said he just moved into town and was lonely and just wanted to talk. [MDR: So did they arrest him? Or take him out for dinner?]
100 block Thunder Valley, 11:59 a.m., Caller reported that while trying to sell a piece of property, prospective buyer was attacked by neighbor’s dogs. Seller wanted to know if he could shoot the dogs. [MDR: Now that’s a way to lose a sale. At least seller didn’t want to shoot the neighbor.]
Farm Road 473, 10:15 p.m., Caller said a stray zebra was standing in her front yard. While an officer was en route, a vehicle hit the animal which sustained minor injuries. Animal control loaded the zebra into a trailer and took it to the wildlife refuge. [MDR: I hate it when stray zebras show up in my front yard. Question: How do you know if a Zebra is from Texas? Answer: Look for the Stetson hat.]

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
