Paris police officers responded to 85 calls from 6 p.m. on New Year’s Eve through 6 a.m. Wednesday, making five arrests — but none were for fighting or for driving while intoxicated, Police Chief Bob Hundley said.
“Family disturbances, motor vehicle crashes, fireworks disturbances, gunshots heard and suspicious activity or vehicles were the main fare for the calls for service,” Hundley said.
Officers went to a local motel and arrested Brandi Leona Saunders Ballard, 33, of Sumner on outstanding felony warrants for burglary of a building, theft of a firearm, theft over $1,500, and a misdemeanor warrant for burglary of a vehicle.
She spent a week in jail — starting on Saturday before Thanksgiving — on the charges, for which bond was set at a total of $12,000 ($3,500 each on three of the charges and $1,500 on the vehicle charge).
Otherwise, one individual was taken to a local hospital for emergency detention, one arrested for public intoxication, one for misdemeanor traffic warrants and one for failing to identify.
An individual called 9-1-1 to report that an individual had just fled with two bottles of wine from a convenience store. Investigation is continuing with a known suspect in the case, the police chief said.
Prior to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Paris police officers responded to 65 calls, resulting in six arrests, Hundley said.
About 9:30 a.m., officers responded to a reported aggravated robbery. An individual reported he willingly went with two men to an apartment in Reno and got into an altercation with them after returning to Paris.
Approximately at the intersection of Northwest 7th and Graham streets, he was struck repeatedly with a baseball bat while being robbed of $150, he said. But police officers and EMS personnel could not locate any visible injuries in the areas of his body where he reported being struck, Hundley said.
Officers did note that the victim appeared to have been drinking. Investigation is continuing as the suspect was with another individual that the victim knew, Hundley said.
