HIT AND RUN, POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA
Officers responded to 24th St. E. and 142nd Ave. E. after a vehicle hit a fire hydrant, and the driver left the scene. The driver returned and was arrested for driving with a suspended license. But he became upset when he was told he was being investigated for hit and run.
The man told police he had weed in his pocket. An officer also found a glass smoking device, and then a knife at which point the man “appeared as if he was going to spit on me,” the officer says in the report.
The man was placed in the back seat of the police car, at which point he started kicking and violently banging his head on the cage. He stopped after being told officers would use a hobble strap on him if the behavior continued.
Damage was estimated at $2,000 to the hydrant and a nearby sign. The man also was cited for possession of 40 grams or less of marijuana.
