Park

Cole Valley, Haight, Castro, Twin Peaks, Panhandle

Tipsy bartender: Officers were called to the scene of a noninjury accident at Hayes Street and Masonic Avenue at 3 a.m. Nov. 18. The driver of the car in front noticed the driver of the second car swaying behind the wheel of her car. Officers nearby also noticed that the driver appeared to be under the influence. She claimed to be a bartender and said that she had had two shots of tequila much earlier in the evening. She failed all of the coordination tests and was taken for a breath test, where she blew almost three times the legal limit of 0.08. She went to jail to sober up.

Fun trio: Three homeless people, a married couple and a third man, were sleeping at 12:41 a.m. Nov. 19 at Haight and Clayton streets. The victim told police that they had consumed two or three bottles of wine and that she and her new husband got into a verbal fight. He was arrested and placed in the back of the police car, where he proceeded to try to kick out the window of the police car, yelling at her not to cooperate with the police and not to have him arrested. The third man continued to yell and intimidate the victim. As he was being placed under arrest, he slapped the police officer’s hand away.

Caught: Officers responded to a reported burglary at the 100 block of Duboce Street at 4:26 a.m. Nov. 21.

The additional suspects in the vehicle were detained shortly after. Police found that the front door of the business had been pried with a crowbar stuck in the door. A second crowbar was found in the vehicle.
