The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.
From 6:00 a.m. on 12/29/2018 through 6:00 a.m. on 12/30/2018, MPD received 374 calls for service. This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials. For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown. MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
To further break down the 374 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (67), East (84), Midtown (53), North (62), South (43), West (51), and Other (14). Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City. For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other".
1) NORTH: Assist Fire/EMS – 5:09 a.m. Officers were dispatched to Orin Rd reference a 44-year-old WF who was found unconscious and not breathing. MFD paramedics revived the subject with naloxone and she was transported to a local hospital. A used needle was located near her; however, no other evidence of drug use. Investigation continuing.
2) SOUTH: Traffic Complaint/Investigation – 6:00 a.m. A 22-year-old HF was driving her vehicle westbound on Hwy 12 at a high rate of speed as she went over the bridge at John Nolen Dr. She lost control of her vehicle and spun across lanes of traffic before striking the median. The suspect's vehicle went back into the roadway and came to a final stop facing east. Another vehicle was approaching westbound and hit the suspect's vehicle head-on. The driver of that vehicle was not injured and the suspect was transported to a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The suspect received a citation for driving too fast for conditions.
3) NORTH: Death Investigation – 7:21 a.m. Officers were dispatched to a death investigation at a North side residential address. The deceased (56-year-old WM) was in the bathroom and appeared to have suffered a medical event that caused him to collapse. CCR was performed by a family member until MFD arrived. The subject was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced. The deceased had a minor medical history and no suspicious circumstances were observed. Medical Examiner on scene.

An ECD (electronic control device) was deployed which caused the suspect to stop and drop the knife. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation. An emergency detention was supported by Journey Crisis Mental Health. Once the ED process has run its course, there is probable cause to arrest the suspect for domestic disorderly conduct while armed.
