7:29, Caller is listening to a police scanner and wants to know why they haven’t arrived yet. The dispatcher didn’t say what this person had called the police about.

7:35, Olive and Clark – 15 kids with bats yelling and causing a disturbance. Whoa.

7:38, Rockwell and Devon – Officer says they need cars at this location immediately.

7:39, Rockwell and Devon – Call came in earlier about a white conversion van that appeared to be drag racing with 2 other cars. One was a black Lexus, the other was a brown Toyota. Officers talking with the driver of the van say he claims these 2 cars were ramming him. Both cars have damage and fled the scene.

7:49, Location TBD – Female officer sounds annoyed about the guy with the scanner mentioned above because he’s calling in repeatedly. She sarcastically said for the dispatcher to tell him that she’s glad he’s listening to the police scanner and doesn’t have anything better to do than to take pictures of the police. Dispatcher has requested police presence.

6102 N. Seeley – Person with a knife call, sounds like a domestic situation. Offender is a female wearing all lime green. Hot.
