A man called police because he and his roommate got into a verbal argument. He said the roommate does not have a job and sits around all day and does nothing. He said he allowed the man to move in two months ago because he lost his job. They agreed to split the rent and utilities.
The complainant, who was said to be drunk in the police report, said they argued and the roommate left with the only key to the house.
He said he wanted his key back and he wanted the roommate to get this stuff and move out.
The officer repeatedly warned the man not to mess with his roommate’s stuff and to have him evicted properly by following procedure. The man was too drunk to understand this and kept saying he would change the locks.
He was adamant that he get his key back. But officers suggested the best thing was to go to sleep and go through the process in the morning.
The officer then left, only to get a call back from dispatch that the man got the key. He said he did not speak to the roommate, but found his own key attached to his belt loop on his shorts.
Again, police told him to go to bed. But the man kept calling dispatch. First he said he knew where his roomate hid an illegal gun and added that he wanted the roommate to move out. He refused to tell police how he knew about the gun.
Then he called dispatch and told them again he was going to throw the roommate’s clothes outside.
He was warned not to do that and that he would be responsible for his actions.
The police report said it was evident that this man was in some sort of manic state because he kept calling back repeatedly in an excited state.
Then after about 20 calls he called back, this time calm, and said his roommate came and got his stuff and he had not put any of his belongings outside because he didn’t want them to get stolen. He then said he was going to bed.
