A holly jolly Christmas

On Holly Street, a 47-year-old man said "Butch" approached him and they argued. (Butch is his ex-girlfriend's new man.) Then, he said, his ex-girlfriend snuck up behind him with a hammer and struck his face. He said his ex-girlfriend took his wallet, which contained $100 cash and his ID. Medics arrived, but the man refused treatment. The man told police: "Go arrest them. They stay at a crack house." "He was concerned about his money," the officer wrote. The man said Butch and his ex-girlfriend stay at a blue house, and offered a possible address on Madrona Street. The man asked: "Why can't you take me there?" The officer said: "It would just irritate the situation." The officer asked: "Is there anything that makes the house unique?" The man replied: "I'll show you if you take me there, it's a blue crack house. (The Blotter Diva must note: Nothing in the police report indicates the officer ever went to the alleged crack house.) No charges filed.
