Hello, gentle, law-abiding readers. Let me take you into the weekend with another batch of police reports.

Today we learn that you really should have complete trust in someone before letting them use your shower. You should also pull over immediately for police, because “I was skeered” won’t fly. And, make sure there’s actually someone chasing you with a knife before drunk-dialing the cops.

Here we go. Have a great weekend, everybody, and stay out of jail.
