Humans are apparently not the only ones suffering through the heat and drought in Port Washington. Conditions are ripe for a fire, though when residents thought they spotted one last week, they were sadly mistaken. Residents of 1001 Hales Trail called 911 about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday after noticing what they believed to be a tree fire on their property. When police and fire authorities arrived, however, they found the smoldering remains of an electrocuted squirrel. The matter was referred to WE Energies. More from the reports:

Expensive gas prices have got some people stooping to low levels. A 62-year-old Port Washington woman in the 400 block of North Harrington Street called police at 5:27 a.m. May 7 to report her gas fill door open, and the cap off. Police believe that gas was possibly siphoned from the tank overnight. Yes, nearly $4 a gallon is expensive — but pay for it like the rest of us. More from the reports:

Maybe she just didn't bring enough candy, but something about his grandmother's visit really irked this 6-year-old Port Washington boy.

It's either a case of pick on somebody your own size, or mind your own business. Port police got a call at 6:55 p.m. Tuesday about a 40-year-old Port man in the 1700 block of Laura Lane that had punched his dog in the face. The man told police he was attempting to train the dog, not get in a smack down. The dog tends to bark at everything when it is outside, and the man said he slapped its snout to discourage the behavior. The dog was fine and no one was injured. More from the reports:

What seemed to start as a typical room service call by a 51-year-old Milwaukee man staying at the Holiday Inn on Tuesday now raises questions about what the man actually thought "room service" all entailed. Port police responded to the hotel, 135 E. Grand Ave., at 7:09 p.m. Tuesday after the manager called regarding a man who had requested assistance in his room, waiting naked for employees to arrive. The man had also been following around other hotel patrons that day, spurring complaints from those people. The suspect waited for police outside, again dressed and smoking. The hotel management did not want the man removed, nor to have any other action taken. More from the reports:

Nothing like singing your heart out to win your lover back. Police were called to a house in the 400 block of West Grand Avenue at 1:51 a.m. Sunday.

He was arrested for disorderly conduct, and subsequently also arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Needles to say, it doesn't look like the two are getting back together.
