PRESS RELEASE — Lord, I’ll be so glad when all this mess is over. House bound people are eating us up and keeping us busy. Let’s see what has been going on.

Neighbors of Bobbie and Bradley Smith had a 2-year-old fall in a swimming pool. Baby was not breathing. Bradley saw several people who looked like something was wrong. Make a long story short, Bradley started working on the little boy and got him breathing. You the man Bradley, Great job. The next day the little boy was outside playing. Wow. Bradley is retired Game Warden and Bobbie is a 911 operator.

We got a 911 call where a man was beating a woman’s head on the window and dash of a vehicle. Before we got there someone else called and said that a man was shot 4 times. Another call said the woman was stabbed. Turned out the guy assaulting the woman tried to hit a brother in law with a brick. Bad guy was shot with a pellet gun 4 times. Bad guy goes to hospital and then comes to jail.

Received a 911 call where a man was dragging a woman by the hair across the yard. We arrived on scene in 7 minutes and both the man and woman were gone. Neighbor took video of the dragging. We looked for them for a couple hours. UTL. Warrant has been issued on the man. They are back together according to neighbors.

We are working a sexual assault of a juvenile. Actors are two men from out of town. More information as we get it.

Received a 911 call from a man who said that him and his wife were beating each other up. He didn’t know his address or his phone number. You couldn’t pay me enough to be a 911 operator. Some of the people they deal with will make you pull your hair out.

Received a 911 call where a couple got in an argument. Of all thing, over the guy eating her new bag of pork skins. You gotta love it.

I found an old wooden chair in the middle of Hwy 87 south of Newton. Looks very old but in good shape. If you lost it give us a call here at the office. 409-379-3636.

Gotta go. Thought for the week: Life is hard, it’s even harder if you’re stupid. Ya’ll have a great week. Remember Social Distance 6’ and wash your hands very often. Stay at home! Ya’ll have a great week and if we can help, just holler! God bless.
