A woman called police because her soon-to-be ex-husband’s family was following her around and stalking her.
She said she met a friend in a grocery store parking lot and was surprised by her brother-in-law when she opened the hatch back of her car and started snapping pictures of her and her male friend.
The brother-in-law then circled her car and took more pictures.
She told police she just wanted to be left alone by her husband’s family and be able to leave the parking lot safely knowing they were not following her, according to the police report.
Police made contact with the brother-in-law who told quite a different story. According to the police report, he was at home watching the hockey game and texted the score to his nephew. The nephew then texted back and told his uncle he was in a grocery store parking lot watching his mother cheat on his father.
The uncle told his nephew to leave and go home, but the nephew refused. that’s when he decided to go to the grocery store a defuse the situation. He said he convinced his nephew to go home, according to the police report.
But, he told officers, since he was there, he thought he might as well collect some evidence for his brother.
He said his brother was embroiled in an infidelity divorce case.
He said that his sister-in-law denied any inter-course with her male friend, but he and his nephew saw it with their own eyes, he told police.
By this time, the brother arrived on-scene and police questioned him as well. He said his kids learned of their mother’s alleged affair and were not happy abut it. He said he was having a hard time keeping his sons out of their divorce proceedings.
The officer advised the man about other options for gaining evidence. He said he would talk with his sons about following their mother around.
