Beer does just what driver said

Tuesday, October 2, 2012

A man who told Shelbyville police, "Beer makes me do crazy things," allegedly struck another vehicle on North Cannon Boulevard at West Jackson Street and left the scene Sunday night.

Sgt. Fred Harvey found a truck witnesses said fit the description of the one involved at a Belmont Avenue apartment complex.

Francisco Bartolome Francisco admitted driving the truck and said he'd had 9 to 10 beers and was drunk. A chemical test on an intoximeter indicated a blood-alcohol level of .145; .08 is considered legally intoxicated.

Francisco was charged with DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license.

Purse stolen

A Kayden Street resident was surprised to see a man walking near her home carrying her purse Saturday.

The victim said she ran outside Tyne Road and yelled at the man, described as black with dreadlocked hair, white t-shirt and black shorts, as he walked away on Tyne Road. The man, who another resident of the home said had walked by the home two other times a few minutes earlier and is a familiar face in the area, allegedly took the purse from the victim's unlocked car.

Home entered

Prescription medication and $685 were taken from an East Lane Street home Sunday, and a neighbor said people seen vandalizing the residence and leaving in a gold van may be to blame.

The neighbor told police her children asked her to call for help after a gold van occupied by a man with a towel covering his face, a woman and several children drove to the home. The man was seen breaking a window before they left, again with the towel over his face.

The occupant arrived later and discovered the items were missing. She told police the suspect had asked to purchase the medication from her earlier and was turned down.

Marijuana charges

Marijuana was confiscated from a vehicle and both occupants charged with possession in a traffic stop early Sunday morning.

Sarah Frances Capps, 31, of Railroad Avenue and Susan Rae Haradon, 41, of Highway 130 East both told police the .32 grams found by Lt. Mike Baker was not theirs. They were both charged with possession of marijuana, while Capps was charged with driving on a revoked license and Haradon with driving on a suspended license.

Officer Chris Vest said he stopped the vehicle on Railroad Avenue after seeing Capps, who he knew had a revoked license, drive into the parking lot of a convenience store moments earlier while he was inside.

Haradon was driving at the time of the stop, and Capps allegedly said they switched drivers because she didn't want to go to jail.

Drug arrest

Police arrested two people in H.V. Griffin Park after finding Lortabs on one Sunday night.

Richard Thomas Clark, 56, of East Lane Street was charged with possession of a schedule III drug. Clark, who said he had been prescribed the drug but didn't have the prescription with him, had the pills in his clothing, officer Cody Swift said.

Swift was on patrol and saw Christy Ann Sheppard, 29, of Barksdale Lane walking toward a vehicle from Clark's vehicle. While determining why Clark and Sheppard were there -- Clark said he was dropping her off -- Swift discovered Sheppard had an outstanding warrant for violation of probation and arrested her.

DUI arrest

An driver accused of being intoxicated was arrested after allegedly almost striking a car driven by a Shelbyville police officer.

Trevor Lee Ray, 19, of Union Street allegedly passed a patrol car driven by officer David Dye, pulled in front of him and slammed on his brakes.

Officer Chris Vest spotted Ray's truck and alleges he made a "jerky motion" before pulling in front of another vehicle and appeared to be taking the vehicle out of gear and revving the engine.

Ray, who had a half-gallon tequila bottle in the truck which Vest noted was more than half-empty, allegedly failed field sobriety tests and tested .102 on a breathalyzer. He was charged with DUI, reckless endangerment and underage drinking and released on $11,000 bond.

Officer bitten

A dog bit a Shelbyville police officer responding to a call at an Enden Avenue home Friday, police said.

"The dog was in an aggressive state, barking and growling as I walked to the front door of the house," officer Russ Grubbs' report said.

When the resident opened the door, "the dog growled and lunged at me, resulting in the dog biting me on the upper portion of my left leg in the hip area," Grubbs said.

Grubbs was treated at Heritage Medical Center.
