best of the blotter 37: bar fights, old men, and mummies

ASSAULT, PEARL ROAD: A 40-year-old Medina man reported being attacked by two unknown men outside Wingz Sports Grill between 12:15 a.m. and 12:45 a.m. Feb. 21. The men reportedly were angry with the victim's jukebox selection.

CIVIL MATTER, RACCOON COURT: At 1:21 March 1, a father told police that he had given his son a $4,000 Rolex watch and a $2,000 diamond rings as gifts.

The son was dancing on a table in Akron and it broke. The table must have been an expensive one because the son then gave the jewelry as collateral for the damage.

The son then went to his father for the $300 to pay for the table, but the father would not give him the money.

Police advised that the issue is a civil matter between the son and the owner of the table.

SUSPICIOUS PERSON, ROYALTON ROAD: A 22-year-old female was the recipient of unwanted advances from a 71-year-old man at the Walter F. Ehrnfelt Recreation Center.

Police were told at 9:28 a.m. March 4 that the man started talking to the woman as he was entering the center, and asked her out.

He then allegedly told the woman that her fiance was probably cheating on her, and that she should go out with him.

Police spoke with the man, and advised him that he will be banned from the center should problems persist.

SIMPLE ASSAULT, YORK ROAD: On Mar. 2 at 10:36 p.m., two males were reported to have been punching cars in the parking lot at Pounders Bar and Grill. They also assaulted another patron, then left in a black Chevrolet Cobalt toward the police station. The vehicle was located and stopped, but no one at Pounders wanted to prosecute. Police were unsure if vehicles were damaged. The bartender did not want the subjects to return.

SUSPICIOUS PERSON, BAY LANDINGS DRIVE: Residents reported another sighting of a person dressed as a mummy, smoking in a vehicle parked on Bay Landings Drive about 2:42 a.m. on March 30. Police responded to a similar report last week, but were unable to locate the suspicious character. Again this time, the mummy had vanished by the time officers responded to the scene.

Ten bucks the Wingz brouhaha was over not enough Foreigner.

Oh great, now mummies have gotten their wrappings on a cloak of invisibility.

I wonder if it was the drummer from Foreigner looking for a new watering hole.

I think my neighborhood needs more mummies.

Also, cars getting punched outside of Pounders is unintentionally awesome.

not(unfortunately) a punishable offense but Coupland's new book took a downward turn to his now predictable line of stoner-drivel metaphysics, so I'm striking it from the reading list.
