Dayton’s police blotter, reported verbatim

By Researched and reported by Charles Grove

Dentists have fillings, too!

Police officers responded to a call from a dentist’s office on an assault complaint. The dental technician and dentist were attempting to perform a root canal on a 36-year-old man, but the two-person team was having trouble during the procedure because the Novocain was not numbing the root they were working on. The man became extremely angry and began swearing at the workers. After the man had had enough, he jumped up and called the two “fucking bitches.” They told the man to leave, but before he did he picked up a heavy metal chair and threw it at the technician. He fled the office but was later arrested and charged with assault.

Screwed up situation

Police officers responded to a report of an in-progress assault with weapons. Upon arrival, one of the officers spoke to a 19-year-old female who told police the other woman on the scene, who was 42, came into her house and tried to stab her with a screwdriver for no reason. While speaking to the 42-year-old, the other officer discovered the 19-year-old was upset with her for talking trash about her to a friend. The 19-year-old then called 911, claiming she was being attacked but screaming at the 42-year-old, “I’ll kick your ass!” They both were charged with menacing.

Catch me if you can

Officers were dispatched to the middle of an intersection where a 22-year-old woman was unconscious inside of her car. Once police were able to wake the woman, they asked for her driver’s license. The woman told officers she didn’t have a license. The officers told her they needed to take her to their cruiser to identify her. She began walking with them but then took off, making it only about 25 feet before being caught and handcuffed. The officers learned the woman had a traffic warrant, and she was charged with obstructing and resisting arrest.

Children raising children

Police officers responded to a domestic violence call. Upon arrival, they found a 16-year-old girl who said her boyfriend, with whom she has a child, had hit her. The girl wrote a statement, saying, “We were both outside, h threw pop on m and I threw water on him and I cam in th house, he continued to pore on me. so I got mad and he started holding me down and I got mad started yelling and as i was pulling away from him he hit me in my face with a can of pop in his hand. My face was swollen and has a big scratch on it.” Police called the 19-year-old boyfriend, who met with police and was charged with domestic violence.

Family matters

Police officers responded to a 911 hang-up at a gas station. Upon arrival they found a woman who claimed a man she knows had threatened her life. That man and the woman have children who recently had a child together. The woman’s daughter had left with the baby and was missing. When the two grandparents met at the gas station, the man began berating the woman about the whereabouts of their children. The man started cursing at the woman, saying he was going to get high and start killing people and screamed, “I’ll kill you bitch!” Other witnesses in the store overheard, and he was charged with menacing.


Officers responded to a home call at 2 a.m. about an unruly juvenile. Police met with the mother, who said her son had left home without permission. During the conversation, the son returned but was very upset. He told police he would “beat [their] ass[es]” and “spit in [their] fucking face[s].” The boy, angry his mother took away his video games, began throwing items while the police were there. Officers were going to issue a summons for the boy, but then he picked up a wooden bat, pointed it at the adults and said, “I got you.” It took both police officers to get the bat away from the boy, who was then taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation.
