Officer requested admittance, but several people attempted to block entrance to the apartment. Once inside, the officer asked if they were the only ones in the apartment, to which they all replied, “yes.” More teens were found in a back room. There was evidence of underage drinking, so the officer called for assistance to process the teens. Nine were cited for underage drinking and referred to  a teen alcohol program. Parents picked up all the teens, except for the one living in the apartment. Before leaving, and after failing to learn who provided the alcohol due to a “sudden onslaught of  amnesia,” the officer removed a 24-pack of beer, three-quarters remaining, and more beers from the refrigeration. All were disposed of.

    Hi Wayne,
    You know the term: Like a deer caught in headlights? Well, deer jacking is shining a super-bright flashlight or the headlights of a car into a deer’s eyes to make them freeze, then shooting them. It’s not only unsportsmanlike, it’s illegal.
