(VERY) ODDS & ENDS: Weekend Points of Interest In The 19th District

Some calls that caught our attention this weekend:

Friday 8:47PM: As a big high school football game plays out at Lane Tech, the following call is dispatched: “Behind the chicken place [across from] Lane, there’s a bunch of high school kids in a dark colored car getting high. One of them is dressed in a banana costume.”

Friday, 10:44PM: A woman calls from the 600 block of Surf Street. She met a guy on Craigslist. He got $600 from her somehow. Now she’s outside of his house and she wants the police.

Saturday, 12:50AM: Both of the 19th district’s squadrols, the large truck-like vehicles that transport prisoners, are assigned to take arrestees to various hospitals for meds. “Now you have no [transport] wagons,” an overworked officer says, “Isn’t it wonderful?”

Saturday 2:25AM: A large fight is reported inside the McDonald’s near Wrigley Field. At least one ambulance is on the way to treat “two men who have been cut.” Officers issue an alert for four to five male, whites, one of whom is “covered in vomit and blood.”

Saturday 10:04PM: Officers briefly interview Mr. Edwin Love in the 800 block of Barry, which is not particularly interesting. Although, Mr. Love’s mugshot from July is.

Sunday, 6:06AM: A highly intoxicated man tries to enter a home in the 2900 block of N. Racine and gets a sobering response. The homeowner starts beating the hell out of him. The drunk male, white is described as being about 30 years old, 200 pounds, with a shaved head, and a beard. He’s last seen walking westbound on Wellington. CPD case #HW462116

Sunday, 6:23AM: A passer-by reports seeing a roll of carpet that appears to have human legs sticking out of it in a dumpster behind the 3400 block of Clark Street. Resolution unknown.
