The following is a summary of incident reports recently made to the Argyle Police Department as compiled by the staff of The Cross Timbers Gazette:
Police took a complaint from a resident that the public address system was too loud at the high school stadium during Saturday morning pee wee football games. It was noted that no other nearby residents complained.
A truck hauling frac sand got hung up on the railroad track and began spilling its load on the track, through the intersection of Hwy 377 and Country Club, and in front of the Shops of Argyle where the truck finally stopped. The driver told police that frac sand is not a hazardous material. He was issued a citation for Local Destination Required.
Police received a report of an older woman in an Acura with handicapped license plates driving recklessly on I-35W. An officer stopped the 76-year-old who admitted that she dropped something on the floorboard of the car and was trying to retrieve it while driving.
A Corral City man called police to report that his 3-year-old grandson was bitten by his ex-son-in-law’s dog yesterday and the boy was now at a Denton hospital emergency room after he woke up with a fever and was vomiting.
Police responded to a domestic disturbance in the 700 block of Charyl Lynn between a mother and daughter.
A resident called police and said that he shot a skunk and wanted to know what to do with the carcass, as he was concerned that it might have had rabies and he did not want the coyotes to get to it and spread disease. The caller’s wife later reported that the man had already gone ahead and buried the skunk.
Police assisted the Argyle Fire Department after a well company truck dumped approximately 20 to 30 gallons of oil in the roadway near the intersection of Harpole and Gibbons Road.
A citation was issued to a solicitor without a permit in the 100 block of Whispering Trails Dr. after the woman was going door to door asking residents if they had any interest in helping inner-city youths.
Police responded to a domestic disturbance at 1:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Redbud St. between a mother and her son after her son would not go to bed when she instructed him to do so.
A suspicious man seen walking around Frenchtown Rd. and Stonecrest Rd. told police that he was waiting for his girlfriend there, and since her parents do not approve of him she dropped him off at that location to wait for her.
Shortly after a minor earthquake occurred on Oct. 13th, police received a call from a man in Country Lakes who said he saw the water in his fish tank shake.
A caller in the 300 block of Redbud St. said that her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend were arguing and he threw a sweatshirt that hit their 2-month-old baby. It was determined that no physical assault occurred and the couple agreed to separate. Police were called back to the residence the same day after the couple began arguing over $140 dollars that the daughter was refusing to give back to the boyfriend while he was in the process of moving out of the residence.
An owner of a rental home in the 100 block of Joyce Lane who had recently evicted tenants found an expensive mountain bike on the property and was concerned that it may have been stolen.
A disabled vehicle reported in the 200 block of FM 407 W turned out to be a mother who stopped to separate her arguing children.
