best of the blotter: lawnmowers, skunk spray, and those darn kids again.

DISTURBANCE, HIGHLAND ROAD: A drunk man decided to mow his lawn May 6 about midnight. This is past the time one is allowed to operate gas powered equipment in the city. When approached by police, the man became obnoxious and was arrested.

DISTURBANCE, HOWE ROAD: A man called police around 2 p.m. May 13 after he finished cutting his grass.
The caller’s neighbor, apparently upset that he was blowing the clippings into the street, began yelling at him, threatening to shoot him and calling the man white trash. According to the caller, as the neighbor was saying this, his dentures were falling out.
The responding officer held an impromptu summit in the middle of the street, over top of the infamous clippings, so the men could meet each other. They were advised to get along, and they agreed. The caller also agreed not to blow grass clippings in the street anymore.

LARGE FIGHT, CHILLICOTHE ROAD: Russell police assisted Chester police with a fight involving Lacrosse players and their parents at West Geauga High School 9:20 p.m. May 8.

MARIJUANA? BRADWAY: A Bradway Street resident told police that an odor of marijuana was emanating from a nearby home at about 11:35 a.m. May 10. Officers responded and surveyed for a burnt drug smell, but none was detected. It was determined that the odor was actually odor from skunk spray.

WATER BALLOON, IMAGINE: A man told police he thought a group of kids was going to throw water balloons at him on Imagine Lane at 6:15 p.m. May 9. As it turned out, it was all in his imagination. Police responded and found that the kids were playing in their yard and were supervised by an adult.

ASSISTANCE, LAKE AVENUE: Police were flagged down and asked to check on a woman at Lakewood Park who seemed overly lethargic May 13.
She told officers she was fine.

DISTURBANCE, MADISON AVENUE: Four or five men were reportedly fighting outside a local bar at 3 a.m. May 12.
Officers found out they weren’t fighting. Rather, one of the men was upset that the bar’s manager wouldn’t sell him a six-pack to take home.
