Steve Adams 911 19th

Here's the text of Councilman Steve Adams' 911 call Tuesday, asking to put City Attorney Mike Gridley under citizens arrest:

Dispatcher: 911, your emergency?
Adams: My name is Steve Adams, Coeur d’Alene city councilman and I’m at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. I would like an officer to respond. I’d like to place somebody under citizens arrest.

D: And what’s going on?
A: Ah, the city attorney Mike Gridley is threatening me.

D: Are you in the library or City Hall building?
A: In the library, community room.
A: (Adams to Gridley who is standing nearby) Where will you be Mike?

D: City community building. Or community room, you said?
A: Yes, ma’am.

D: And what’s that phone number for you, Steve.
A: Number given.

D: And what types of threats? I mean, bodily harm. What exactly did he say?
A: He approached me after the meeting. He got within a foot of my face. He called me a moron. And told me I could (expletive deleted) – you stupid moron. He was inches from my face. He is ... I’m 5 foot 8, He’s probably 6-3. He was shaking. He was leaning in toward me. I perceived it …

D: I’m sorry, what’s your last name again, Steve?
A: Adams.

D: That’s right. All right, I’ll have an officer make contact with you there. OK?
A: OK, thank you very much.
