On Oct. 12 at 10:34 a.m., a man reported that his wife was leaving Argyle and threatening to kill a woman in Oklahoma with whom the man went to school. The caller said his wife found out he had been calling the other woman.

On Oct. 22 at 3:31 a.m., an Uber driver reported that he had just dropped off a couple at a home on Lamp Post Lane and was concerned because the female was intoxicated and seemed like she didn’t want to go inside, and the driver “just did not feel right about the situation.” A responding officer spoke to both subjects and found that the female was OK, saying, “If anything, she was spooked because she thinks the house is haunted, but that is it.”
