• A toddler’s telephone mis-dial resulted in  a man’s marijuana-related arrest.
At 4:27 p.m. on July 23, Saukville police responded to a 911 call in the 100 block of Tower Street. They had been advised by dispatch that a child’s voice could be heard.
Upon arrival, a 28-year-old female resident told them everything was OK and that the call was an accident. While there, police noticed a strong smell of marijuana and the woman admitted she had smoked some an hour earlier and that it all was gone.
Officers were given permission to search the residence, where they found three children, ages 4, 2 and two weeks old, and a 29-year-old man who led them to the kitchen. There, he provided them with six marijuana pipes, all of which contained residue, a metal grinder with a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana and a clear plastic bag consisting of the same.
The man said all the items belonged to him and that he was in the process of quitting his use.
The substances tested positive for THC and the man was arrested for possession of THC and drug paraphernalia.
Child Protective Services was called on behalf of the children.

•At 7:49 p.m. on July 23, a call for a possible domestic incident brought police to the 200 block of East Dekora Street. There, a 21-year-old man said his 41-year-old mother had gotten into an argument with her 34-year-old ex-boyfriend.
The son said she was pushed down the stairs and her arm was broken.
In contacting the suspect, he said he and the woman had already broken up and she came to his residence to get her spare key and plants but saw roses on the table intended for another woman, which sparked an argument.
He said she smacked his arm and threw a plant, and he said he never pushed her down any stairs but did push her out of the residence.
The woman told police the man threw the plant at her, causing her to drop her phone, and when she bent over to pick it up he grabbed her by the hair and walked her to the door and pushed her in the back, causing her to fall down the stairs.
Upon EMS confirmation of a broken arm suffered by the woman, the man was arrested for substantial battery.

•At 8:11 p.m. on July 29, police arrived in the 200 block of Riverside Drive for a report by a 30-year-old woman of a domestic disturbance.
She said her 27-year-old live-in boyfriend had been hitting and choking her. She said they had both consumed alcohol at a wedding earlier in the day and the man was upset about leaving the wedding early.
The man admitted he began breaking things at home, but only ones that belonged to him, and said the woman was punching him in the face so he defended himself by getting on top of her and restraining her.
The woman said the man grabbed her cell phone and tried to break it, began striking her in the face, and then put her in a choke hold for between 30 and 40 seconds and told her he was going to kill her.
Police noticed cuts on the woman, bruising along her left arm and slight redness and scratches around her throat.
The man was arrested on charges of strangulation/suffocation and disorderly conduct as a domestic violence incident.

The driver refused to pull over and spike strips were later successfully deployed by Cedarburg police on Highway I just north of Highway 60.
The vehicle continued to drive with flat tires before it began smoking and sparking heavily. The two occupants, later identified as juveniles from Milwaukee, fled on foot after putting the van in the ditch.

Police also found on the man $4,355 in cash, while the passenger had $1,350 in cash.
A search of the vehicle was conducted and nothing was found, but both subjects were on probation so a hold was placed on them and they were transported to Ozaukee County Jail.
There, a strip search of the passenger was conducted and jail staff found an additional $1,000 in cash and a twisted bag containing small rock-like material of different colors.. The man admitted the lighter rock was crack cocaine and the darker was heroin.
Although they were all individually packed, the man said he alone used the drugs in a recreational manner.
The driver is being charged for possession of marijuana while the passenger is being charged for possession of cocaine and heroin, with the intent to deliver both.

•At 8:58 p.m. on Aug. 2, police responded to a report of a man in the 100 block of South Dries Street kicking around a construction barricade and shouting profanities.
A witness showed police where the man lived and found the 34-year-old Saukville man sitting on his enclosed porch. He would not open the porch door for police, but did eventually open a window.
After being issued a citation for disorderly conduct, the man came out of the house, crumpled up the citation, and threw it into the middle of the street.
He also made several derogatory comments about police before walking back into his house, where police followed him.
The man was uncooperative while police tried to arrest him, prompting the use of a stun gun. He was arrested for disorderly conduct.
