Fraudulent practices, violation of parole. A man on parole tried to fool his urine test by filling a hand lotion bottle with synthetic urine.

The man — who is on parole for a drug offense — was required to submit to an observed urinalysis as part of his parole. As the parole officer watched the man give a sample, he noticed a device of some kind hidden within the “center ‘pocket’ underwear,” according to the man’s arrest report.

The man handed over the item when the officer demanded it — it turned out to be a small lotion bottle filled with synthetic urine, the report said. The man was arrested for violating his parole and attempting to scam his urine test.

Offensive actions

Battery. A 56-year-old woman yanked the ponytail of another woman who commented on the reckless driving of a red pickup truck in a hospital drop-off area.

The victim was walking into the hospital with her son when the pickup sped through the parking lot in front of them to the pickup area where the suspect was waiting, according to an arrest report. Before the victim and her son went inside the hospital, she turned around to tell the driver he was being reckless.

That is when the suspect, who was walking toward the pickup, reached up and grabbed the other woman’s ponytail, pulling her to the ground. Hospital security separated the two, and the victim called the police.

The red pickup truck did not belong to the suspect, but a man who lived at her home. Sheriff’s Office deputies later picked up the suspect from her home on Brian Lane. They have charged her with battery.
