Clean your room
A man, previously homeless, recently moved back in with mom in Arden Hills and was told April 15 to clean his room. That set him off and the 42-year-old man pushed mom down, used abusive language and grabbed and threw the 69-year-old woman’s phone when she tried to call 911. Mom told her son to get out so he picked up his guitar case and left. Deputies are looking for the suspect on pending charges of domestic assault, fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct.

• A driver came all the way from Downer’s Grove, Ill. to be arrested at County Road I and Quincy Street April 7 for fourth-degree DWI, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and weaving over the fog line, the center line, the fog line and so on. The 26-year-old man, who blew a .08 percent BAC, was booked at the Ramsey County Jail.
• A man got into a cab the night of April 6 in the 5000 block of Silver Lake Road, promptly leaving his stomach contents on the floorboards, then fled the scene before the driver could get his hands on him. Unlike Chicago, where a new city ordinance calls for a puking penalty of $50, there’s no upcharge for upchucking in Mounds View. Although it is a misdemeanor criminal damage to property charge that will go on your record, if convicted.
• Police checked on the welfare of a driver slumped over the wheel of a vehicle in a trailer park on Windsor Way at Dickens Lane April 10. The 59-year-old local man tested .12 percent BAC on the Datamaster and was arrested for 4th degree DWI and failure to show proof of insurance. He was booked at the jail.
• The bike theft season opener occurred April 6 with the disappearance of a bright blue $90 mountain bike in the 2300 block of County Hwy. 10.
• An officer was pulling into the parking lot of a nightclub in the 400 block of Old Hwy. 8 N.W. just past midnight April 16 when a man standing in the lot put both hands in the air. That will arouse suspicion and the 28-year-old local man was checked out and arrested on an outstanding Ramsey County felony warrant for theft by swindle, a Hennepin County misdemeanor warrant for fifth-degree assault and Anoka and Chisago county misdemeanor warrants for his arrest for traffic violations.
• Police stopped a woman April 5 at Coolidge Street N. E. and St. Anthony Boulevard for not wearing a seatbelt. She was cited, and when an outstanding warrant was found for the 30-year-old woman’s arrest for no insurance, she was transported to the Ramsey County Jail.
• A woman who had apparently knocked back more than a few and was attempting to walk down 39th Avenue N.E. on April 7 was picked up by police for her own safety. The 31-year-old was transported home and released to the custody of her roommate.
• A carpet shampooer valued at $1,500 went missing April 1 from the maintenance closet at an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Kenzie Terrace. Security footage of the forced entry break-in is under review.
• The vehicle in the 3200 block of Diamond Lake Terrace was unlocked April 1 but the prowler broke a window anyway. A credit card and cash amounting to $510 went missing.
Catfight at Snail Lake
• A 15-year-old Maplewood girl was slugged in the face April 9 by a 14-year-old White Bear Lake girl at the Snail Lake Learning Center on Hwy. 96. “She was saying stuff about me,” the younger teen said before being transported to the Ramsey County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
• Bogus hockey tickets can be now be added to the endless list of fake items available to the uninformed — Gucci handbags, Oakley sunglasses, Nike sneakers, MP3 players, you name it. But the drinker at a bar in the 1100 block of County Road E, approached the night of April 8 by another drinker who couldn’t use his Minnesota Wild hockey tickets for the next night and wanted to sell them, he said, was too smart for that. The price sounded like a good deal, but to be safe, the would-be victim called the Wild ticket office. Reading the information on the bar code to a employee proved the tickets to be fakes. The suspect fled the scene when he saw the man on the phone.
• A man possibly not firing on all cylinders was spotted tampering with an Xcel Energy power pole April 9 at Vadnais Lake Boulevard and Edgerton Street. The suspect, described as 37- to 42 years of age, fled the scene on a bicycle when approached by Xcel Energy employees. The damage was estimated at $300-350 and deputies are looking for the suspect on a criminal damage to property charge.
Pickin’ on grandpa
• Teen youths assigned the task of cleaning the “lower level unit” on Centerville Road, began throwing things around, then shoved grandpa following an April 12 argument. The 77-year-old man called 911, saying he was hesitant to intervene and admitted being afraid of his grandsons. Deputies are looking for a 14-year-old boy on a domestic assault charge.
