11/14 Police Blotter

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:

Police were dispatched Wednesday to the 400 block of West Fifth Street in reference to a domestic dispute.

The complainant told dispatch her son was intoxicated and threatening the family.

The officers made contact with the subject in his bedroom. The subject said his mother was letting his nephew stay at the house, which he objected to. His mother said it was her house and she would pick who was allowed to stay there. An argument began on that point.

Police put the subject into protective custody for detox. After searching him they found a marijuana pipe in his pocket. He was taken to the Curry County Adult Detention Center.

The pipe was logged into evidence.
