The following is a summary of incident reports recently made to the Argyle Police Department as compiled by the staff of The CTG:
A guest at a residence in the 300 block of Red Bud called to report a disturbance in the front yard and on the front porch at 11 p.m. The ex-daughter-in-law of the homeowner was reported to be “drunk and threatening to slit the throat” of her boyfriend, who also lives at the residence. He didn’t appear to be intoxicated and there were no weapons visible. The intoxicated woman was taken into custody.
The following day, police were alerted that the woman in custody was about to be released from jail, but was not welcome to return to the residence. Officers advised the caller (the son of the homeowner) of eviction requirements, again.
Two days later, a third (but related) caller said her ex-husband (the 22-year-old son of the owner and the boyfriend of the previously jailed ex-daughter-in-law, as well as the boyfriend of the first caller) and his current girlfriend (the first caller) are outside fighting. This caller said she wasn’t going outside, but would wait inside with her fiancé for the police. Upon arrival, the officer advised the two people on the lawn to leave the property the next time they discuss the other people living on the property.
Just for variety, a property owner in the 200 block of Red Bud called with a trespass issue. He requested response from Denton County and was told they wouldn’t respond, because his property is within Argyle town limits; hung up. He called back saying he’d be calling the Chief of Police the following day, but wanted an officer to come to his property because a real estate agent had stepped onto his property to take photos of a construction site next door. After an attempt to explain the procedure to file a trespass report, the caller hung up.
At 1:45 a.m. on June 5, a call came in from the same property in the 300 block of Red Bud that the owner’s son had fainted and was unconscious. He suffers from high blood pressure when stressed and had stood to take his pressure and fainted. When EMT’s arrived, he complained of his left side hurting. His readings were stabilizing.
The pigs were partying late at night on June 6. An animal complaint was recorded at 11 p.m. reporting six wild hogs on FM 407 running toward I-35W.
On June 9, 10 black cows near I-35W and Crawford Rd. caused multiple 9-1-1 calls around 7:30 p.m.
On June 14, the pigs were back at about 10:30 p.m. This time, the group had grown to be about 15, all different colors.
On June 19 at 8 a.m., a call reporting two car burglaries in the 400 block of Goodnight Trl. was reported.
That evening, about 8:30 p.m., a large group, now 25 to 30, of feral hogs was reported running near FM 407 and I-35W.
On June 20 at 9 a.m., another car burglary call came in, this time from the 300 block of Dallas St. It was followed by another vehicle burglary call in the 200 block of Dallas St.
On June 21 at 5:30 p.m., a 9-1-1 call for the recurring residence in the 300 block of Red Bud from the third caller in previous calls, reported that an ex-boyfriend (not mentioned in any earlier incidents for this monthly series) had arrived and began shoving her, pulled out a knife, threw it and almost hit the dog. He left on foot, and she advised he’s wearing a black shirt and hat from Subway. He was apprehended and transported to the sheriff’s office.
On June 23 about 6 p.m., two callers reported a lone cow was seen standing in a ditch in the 200 block of Gibbons Rd. near Harpole.
On June 24 at 3 p.m., a Ford Explorer blew a front tire and rolled-over several times near the 78-mile-marker on I-35W.
On June 26 in the 200 block of Dove Creek Rd. a vehicle burglary was reported. In all of the car burglaries reported, not a single car was “broken” into. They were all unlocked. Some small electronic items were taken, but in other instances they were left alone. That led police to believe they were searching for specific items, like guns.
On June 26, at 1:40 p.m., an anonymous call from a neighbor of the residence in the 300 block of Red Bud was received reporting that the homeowner’s son and his girlfriend (the first caller in the monthly series) were fighting while driving to the home. When they arrived, they got out of the vehicle, the woman was crying and screaming loudly. When the officer arrived, no physical assault was noted and they said it was only verbal about the owner’s son cheating on the girlfriend. The officer tried to get the girlfriend to leave, but she said she has no where to go. She said she couldn’t go to the women’s shelter, because they told her she couldn’t return since she’d stayed 30-days last time. She refused to leave the residence.
