Published: Wednesday, July 2nd, 2003
Samplings of recent calls received by the Clovis Police Department, according to police reports: Police arrested a driver about 4:30 p.m. Monday on outstanding warrants following a crash at the 500 block of South Hull, and would like to find an injured male passenger who fled the scene. The driver, a 27-year-old man from Albuquerque, was northbound on Hull in a Chevy suburban, failed to stop for a 33-year-old Clovis man turning left into a business, and hit the rear end of the Clovis man’s utility truck. The Albuquerque man’s passenger hit his head on the windshield leaving laceration marks on his face and impact marks on the windshield. When a friend pulled up behind the crash scene, the passenger said he would go to the hospital via private vehicle but police say he never arrived and the driver refused to identify him. Neither of the drivers were injured and the Albuquerque man was cited for careless driving, driving on a suspended license, no insurance, and expired registration. --- Responding to a report of men shooting fireworks at each other, police arrived in Potter Park about 5:20 p.m. Tuesday and found a 16-year-old Clovis man shooting multiple artillery battery type fireworks toward a second teenage man who was running away. The Clovis man denied knowing the second teenager and said he was shooting fireworks at him because the other man began shooting first. Police confiscated the fireworks and cited the first teenager for illegal use of fireworks within city limits. --- A 21-year-old Clovis man tried to flee police when they noticed him stopped in a parking lot Tuesday morning at the 1500 block of North Reid and tried to serve him an arrest warrant. The man stepped out of the car as directed by police but took off running and was caught at the corner of Yale and Tulane. In addition to the outstanding warrant, police booked the man for evading and eluding an officer. --- Screaming, yelling, and loud bangs outside her window caused a Clovis woman to look outside about 2 a.m. Tuesday, where she found that her mailbox at the 600 block of Prairieview had been run over and destroyed.
