Bite-Sized Blotter: Exploding Port-A-Potties, parkour and more
The Lake Oswego police log is, shall we say, rather popular. We even made a book out of it a few years ago, and people still come into the office in search of a copy.
So with that in mind, we present the Bite-Sized Blotter — a Wednesday sneak peek at the week's calls before the whole log posts Thursday:
7/18 6:28 a.m. A caller said she was walking her dog and a car ran a stop sign, splitting the leash and causing her to hit her head. An officer found no evidence of a hit-and-run when they arrived, and said the caller was "extremely intoxicated and drinking a beer when I arrived."
7/19 12:39 p.m. A caller said there was a "volley" of fireworks the night before near the 18200 block of Crestline Drive, and in the morning he noticed a Port-A-Potty had been possibly blown up by the fireworks.
7/19 6:48 p.m. A caller wondered if there were any city ordinances regarding use of a bow and arrow in his backyard.
7/20 10:55 a.m. A caller said her dog peed by a street sign and a woman came out of a house and yelled at her, then got in her car and followed her home.
7/20 12:15 p.m. A caller noticed kids scaling a building near the 2500 block of Country Club Road. They were practicing "hardcore parkour skills" and told to stay away from windows.
