From the Grass Valley Union:
• At 3:54 a.m., a person came into the police lobby to complain about a convenience store clerk locking the door then being rude. The person said there was no criminal activity, but requested the department use its “peace officer powers” to resolve the issue. The person was advised a private business can open and close at the owner’s discretion, and although the clerk was rude, it was not a crime.
• At 12:46 p.m., a caller from the 900 block of Maidu Avenue reported a woman was causing a disturbance. A deputy arrived and she punched him in the stomach. The 59-year-old woman was arrested for battery on a peace officer.
• At 6:16 p.m., a caller from the 100 block of West Berryhill Drive reported three juveniles were kicking what appeared to be a dead animal and were trying to put it in a bag. Police made contact with the juveniles, and the item was not a dead animal. They had dressed up a dummy and were making a film.
• At 6:17 p.m., a woman from the 600 block of Packard Drive reported she and her family were picnicking under a tent when an arrow tore through the canvass and landed on the table. No one was injured.
• At 9:49 p.m., a caller from Cordell Court reported hearing a sound like someone was yelling for help. It was unknown whether the sound was a parrot. The caller was concerned someone may be hurt. Deputies checked the area and were unable to locate the sound.
• At 10:52 p.m., a man called from the 18000 block of Waterfall Lane to report he returned home from church to find his goat was stolen. He requested extra patrol.
