Poor Freezing Cat Prompts 911 Call
A roundup from recent activity from the police blotter also includes a 411 call that ended in a warrant arrest and parking tickets.
The critter's fur coat must not have looked too warm because seeing the animal outside sparked some concern by a Port Washington resident — enough to call the cops.
A 44-year-old Port resident 911 at 10:44 a.m. Wednesday to report a cat on his back porch; he was concerned about the cold weather.
An officer arrived at his residence in the 1000 block of Westport Driver, but the cat had already left. The officer explained the proper use of 911, and that this situation didn't really warrant it.
The resident apologized, but cats everywhere should thank him for his concern. Meow.
More from the reports:
- Kind of gave himself away: Police responded to a 911 hangup call at 9:54 p.m. Feb. 17 in the 100 block of East Prospect Court. The caller, a 21-year-old Port man, had meant to dial 411 to find out information on parking. The man was arrested for a body only warrant for not returning a jury duty questionnaire, and taken to Ozaukee County Jail.
- No parking: City plow drivers reported vehicles on Johnson and Powers Street at 8:13 a.m. Friday that were making it difficult to plow. One vehicle was plowed in because of this, and another had already been ticketed for overnight parking violations. This is a good thing to keep in mind with Tuesday night's storm.
