best of the blotter 39: blind dating rules, whiny kids, and birds

DISTURBANCE, SOUTHPARK CENTER: At 9:53 p.m. March 19, Houlihan’s restaurant reported having a problem with male customer refusing to pay his entire bill.

Apparently, the man had been on a blind date with a woman who insulted him and left the restaurant after eating her meal, but before the check arrived.

The man did not believe he should be required to pay for her meal, since this is not in the “blind dating rules.”

Police convinced the man to pay the bill in order to avoid being arrested, but he did not include a tip.

THEFT, ROYAL PORTRUSH DRIVE: A Solon man, 30, reported March 15 that sometime after Christmas, someone took his watch, an Audemars Piguet Las Vegas Strip Special edition, valued at $18,900. Details were sketchy, other than the watch had a black alligator strap with red stitching

An Aurora Road boy was charged and taken downtown March 16 after he was not allowed to go skateboarding because he had not taken out the garbage, then went anyway after a parent left the home briefly. He then returned with two friends and packed some personal belongings with plans to leave again, before a family member attempted to stop him.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, PRINCETON COURT: A woman called police March 19 to report that her 26-year-old son had become enraged when she discarded some marijuana she found in the home.

He threw a candle at her, injuring her arm. He left the house for a while, and upon his return home, he was arrested by police and taken to the station and charged with domestic violence. The mother put in a request for a temporary protection order.

ANIMAL COMPLAINT, IRENE ROAD: A man said March 19 a bird somehow got into his dishwasher, and he requested help removing it. The bird was removed.

ASSAULT, BAGLEY ROAD: A 49-year-old man sitting in a theater at Regal Cinema with a woman on March 19 was struck in the head by the woman’s husband, 53, of Olmsted Township.

If only the blind date guy had been following extramarital rules, then he wouldn't have had to pay, just suffer a concussion.
