Suspicious incident. While attempting to receive an answer as to why her dental appointment was cancelled, a Palm Coast woman was threatened on the phone by an alleged employee who said, "I have your address, and I'm going to cut your throat while you sleep," according to a police report.

The woman told police she had asked to speak to a supervisor before this occurred. Disturbed, the woman hung up. She didn't wish to press charges, but wanted police to document the incident.

Disturbance. Police ended up giving a 65-year-old Ormond Beach woman a drive home after she had an issue with her taxi driver, who ended up calling police. 

The taxi driver had picked up the woman at a local restaurant, and drove around "aimlessly" for a while because the woman didn't know where she wanted to go, according to the police report. She then began screaming for help after witnesses said they saw the taxi driver refuse to let her out of his car; she owed him $23. 

The woman only had $12. The taxi driver agreed that would work. He left her in the parking lot of the Police Department.
