The officer followed the vehicle to Plains Regional Medical Center and observed a male carry an unconscious female in to the emergency room.

After receiving treatment for their injuries, the male and female teens told officers they had been at a party and when they left a male they didn’t know threw a beer bottle through the open window of their vehicle.

The officer took suspect information.


Around 3 a.m. Sept. 24 an officer responded to a business in the 1000 block of Mitchell Street for a dispute report.
