Caught wet-handed

Trespass, theft of utilities. An Oregon man was arrested when police caught him using the outdoor shower at someone else's home.

The police department received a call early in the morning about an unknown man walking through people's property, according to the suspect's arrest report.

A police officer found the man as he was showering, and the homeowner told police that she did not know the man nor did she give him permission to use the outdoor shower. 

Once the utility bill comes in, the man will be charged for the amount of water he used, according to the report.

Parking wars

10:33 a.m. — 100 block of Cypress Point Parkway, Palm Coast

Aggravated assault. Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a Daytona Beach woman after she allegedly flashed her handgun at another driver who honked at her in a busy parking lot.

The suspect was backing her Ford Fusion into a parking spot when the car behind her honked at her, according to the suspect's arrest report. The suspect continued backing up, and the other car — unable to reverse because of traffic — honked again. 

The driver of the second car told a Sheriff's Office deputy she was finally able to back her car up so that the Ford Fusion could park without hitting her, and then parked her own car. She happened to park near the suspect, and that's when the suspect flashed the gun.

The suspect then immediately pulled out of the spot she had just parked in and left. Sheriff's Office deputies found and arrested the suspect as she was returning to the store parking lot. The handgun, found in the suspect's purse, was not loaded, according to the report.
