Citizen Threatened with Battery of Drowning Victim

Issue: Body recovered from Lake Cd’A: Man, in his 60s, found floating near Third Street docks/Marc Stewart, Coeur d’Alene Press

In the “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” Dept., the Good Citizen who reported the floating body off Tubbs Hill almost got cited by an alpha CPD Blue for battery. Check out the end to Marc Stewart’s story in the CDA Press: “When police arrived, (Richard) Ulrick and his friends told their story to a patrolman. The unidentified officer allegedly threatened to charge Ulrick with battery for intentionally throwing snowballs at the man, Ulrick said. ‘I wasn’t doing that,’ Ulrick said. ‘He made an assumption that we were up to no good. It really pisses me off that he thought we were trying to hit a dead man with a snowball.’”
