The suspect was issued a misdemeanor citation for operating motor vehicle without the owner's consent, after being admitted to a local hospital for a medical condition. Investigation continuing.

4) EAST: Check Property – 4:25 p.m.  An officer doing a routine check of a property on Wintergreen Dr (due to a recent break-in and ongoing concerns at this address) notices a window broken out.  A K-9 unit was called to assist with clearing the home.  No one was located inside and it was not possible to tell if anyone had recently been in the home due to the previous damage.  Officers secured the window by placing boards over the window from the inside.

5) SOUTH: Disturbance – 5:50 p.m.  Officers were called to Industrial Dr (Detox) for a suspect out of control.  The suspect (18 year old WM) pulled a lanyard that was hanging around staff member's neck and may have pulled out some hair as well.  At least four officers struggled with the suspect to get him in physical restraints. During the altercation, an MPD officer was injured and went to the hospital for a medical evaluation. There is probable cause for battery, disorderly conduct (x2), resisting/obstructing and a city ordinance citation for underage person to possess/consume alcohol.  Suspect remains in Detox.  Investigation continuing.

9) EAST: Conveyance Mental Health – 8:49 p.m.  Officers were called to Valley Road for a subject (66 year old WF) who wanted to harm herself.  The female has numerous medical conditions and is in constant pain which is a contributing factor towards her feelings and actions of self-harm.  The subject was transported by ambulance to a local hospital and after an extended period of time it was determined an Emergency Detention would be appropriate.
10) EAST: Weapons Offense – 9:12 p.m.  Officers were called for a report of a disturbance and one or two shots fired near the 700 block of Pinecrest Dr.  Two callers reported hearing a male and female arguing in the area with an unknown vehicle and the vehicle then left the scene.  Officers responded and did not locate anyone injured nor any property damage.  Investigation continuing.
