SLCPD Blotter: Couch Trespass and a Wheelchair Attack

The news from the Salt Lake City Police Department watch log has in the past few days reported some rather bizarre incidences that required police intervention, including the case of a trespassing couch surfer, and a fracas involving a dog and a man in an automated wheelchair.---

According to the watch command log, it was shortly after 3 a.m. Sat., May 12, that a resident awoke to find an individual had broken into his home and was fast asleep on the man’s couch. Apparently, the individual had left a party up the street and entered a stranger’s apartment through an open back door. For this post-party foul, the perpetrator was booked into jail for trespass.

In other curious crimes, the watch log reports that Tues., May 15, a man was arrested for aggravated assault. The incident boiled down to two men getting into an argument that resulted in the arrest of perpetrator Aaron Thomas for aggravated assault, when Thomas’ dog bit the other man.

In his defense, Thomas claimed that the dog attacked only because the other man attempted to run him over in an automated wheelchair. That’s what happens when you bring a dog to a wheelchair fight.
