Overheard on the Scanner: 3-22-13

For the week of March 15 through March 22, here’s snippets of scanner chatter between law enforcement, dispatch and first responders.

3-15-13 @ 8:46 p.m. - Dispatch tells officers there’s a “very intoxicated” 11-year-old at Post and Riverside. Medics responded to the young boy.

3-16-13 @ 3:26 p.m. - A Spokane Valley boy earned a new nickname of “bunny ears” as an officer picked him up along with a friend while they tried to hitch hike near the IHOP and later, near the railroad tracks. Why? Because he was wearing bunny ears, according to dispatch.

3-16-13 @ 5:27 p.m. - At first it looked like suspicious people were trying to break into a home at an unknown location, but an officer learned the homeowners were instead trying to remove arrows from their roof, according to dispatch.

3-21-13 @ 11:10 a.m. - “Parents not being entirely cooperative,” according to dispatchers as parents navigated the “zoo” that was Sullivan Road. Parents were unsure how to pick up their rain-soaked children after a massive evacuation from Central Valley High School.

3-21-13 @ 5:07 P.M. - Dispatch dubs a suspicious man as “Mr. Machete” because he was reportedly slinging one as he was running toward Freya on Longfellow, according to a caller.
