Weird Police Calls During the Bomb Cyclone in Greeley
Weeks have gone by since the infamous Bomb Cyclone hit Colorado. Snow covered cars left on roads in the wake of the aftermath made it look almost post-apocalyptic in certain parts of the state. If you were lucky enough, you might not have had to go anywhere outside of the comfort of your home. First responders, on the other hand, were out helping whoever they could. Some of the calls from Greeley seemed to be a bit peculiar. Here are just a few of those calls that came in during the Bomb Cyclone on March 13th.
9:45 a.m. - Police were called to the 1700 block of Fairacre Dr to a report of a woman carrying numerous trash bags and that she was "acting like she was tweaking".
10:45 a.m. - Police responded to a call off the 1400 block of A Street for a heater problem. The caller stated that the heater was not working, so they removed a vent pipe, only to find a raccoon stuck in the pipe.
8 p.m. - Police came to the 900 block of 13th Street on a report of a neighbor that let her dog out to fight a raccoon... Turns out that the dog's owner didn't know that there was a raccoon outside when they let their dog out.
8:15 p.m. - A 16-year-old boy got into a fight with his 70-year-old grandmother over his Xbox. The boy then fought with his father, who popped him in the mouth. Police responded to the home. The father is reported that the boy was popped to "maintain discipline in the home."
10 p.m. - Police were called to a gym on 23rd Ave in the 2300 block of a report of a man that threw a high heel shoe at someone due to being mad he has to go to work.
Snowstorms... they bring out the crazy in people sometimes.
