Police reports: Man calls cops on bar for cutting him off

From Richmond Hill Police Department reports.

Feb. 22

A man evidently dialed 911 around 2:19 a.m. Sunday because a bar stopped serving him.

According to the police report, officers “responded to the Juke Box… in reference to a person calling 911 stating they needed police right now at the Juke Box.”

Once police arrived at the bar on Highway 17, the reporting officer spoke with management and they were “unaware of the reason of our presence.”

The officer checked with dispatch and got the name of the complainant, and his location.

“Dispatch stated he was walking towards Denny’s. When Dispatch gave me the name of the suspect… Juke Box Management noticed the name and stated he was in the bar a few minutes earlier and was intoxicated,” the report said. “Management also notified me that (the caller) cussed them out before he left the Juke Box. Management did not know the reason why (the caller) would call authorities.”

The officer then drove to Denny’s to speak with the complainant.

“”I asked (him) why he called 911. (He) began to yell that I need to go over the Juke Box and knock on the door,” the officer reported. “I asked (him) for what reason. (His) speech was slurred and he seemed to have a difficult time walking, he could not stand still.”

Then, the man, who continued yelling, said “The Juke Box would not serve him any alcoholic beverages and I needed to go knock on the door and speak to them,” the report said. “I advised (the man) I just came from there and I would not be going back to the Juke Box. “

At the point, the man “still yelling stated he would just go over to the Juke Box and handle it,” the report said, noting the man “kept walking towards Denny’s and yelling back towards me.”

The man, who was arrested for public drunkenness, was carrying both a pocket knife and a bullet. Both were confiscated for safekeeping “until he could retain possession of the items,” the report ended.

(The woman) statedthat she attempted to back up so she could turn around, but while she was backing she backed up into the ditch and her vehicle feel too far to be driven out on its own.
