Police Blotter – You better watch yourself

  • Tuesday, July 15, 2014

An employer called police to report harassment from an employee he recently had to fire. According to a police report, the employer explained to the officer that his employee walked off the job earlier in the day and he determined that he would just have to fire him.

It turns out that not showing up and walking off the job have become common occurrences with this fellow, the report cited.

The employer told the employee he was fired and would have to wait to get his final check and get paid like everyone else does.

This did not sit well with the now former employee, and according to the report, he became very angry and was thought to have hung up the phone on his now former boss.

However, the former employee did not hang the phone up like he thought he did and was overheard allegedly saying to a passenger in the car he was riding in that the employer better watch himself and that he would slash all four of his tires and put a knife in the crew’s foreman.

The employer also allegedly heard the former employee say he knew all the combinations to everything and would take all the equipment.

The former employee eventually realized the phone was still on and finally hung up. The employer then texted the former employee and told him he had overheard everything that was said. Then he called police and requested extra patrol of his business and documentation for use in the future if needed.
