The man who cried wolf

8:29 p.m. — 6600 block of Tangerine Avenue, Bunnell

False report of a crime. A man was arrested for false reporting a crime — his third such charge in five months. 

Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputies were called out to the home in Bunnell because a man claimed his "old lady" had a gun and was threatening shoot him, according to the man's arrest report. The woman, though, told deputies that she had not owned a gun in several years.

She said she had actually been avoiding the man because he was in a bad mood, the report said, even leaving the porch while he was there — something their Ring camera easily confirmed. 

The woman told deputies that the man does this sometimes when he is drunk, the report said. The man's arrest history showed he had been arrested two previous times for false report of a crime since December, among other charges. 

Deputies ultimately arrested the man instead of the woman, but had to call for medical attention when the man said he was having a panic attack. 

The medical team checked him over and said the man's vitals were normal. He was taken to jail.

Resisting arrest without violence. Flagler County Sheriff's Office deputies arrested a 66-year-old woman who was refusing to cooperate.

The woman was in a gas station attempting to find a new charging cord for her phone by taking the cables out of the boxes and trying them, according to her arrest report. When the store clerk told her she couldn't do that, she told the clerk, "Call the police."

When FCSO deputies arrived, the woman identified herself by handing her an expired ID from Washington, D.C., issued in the 1980s, the report said. The woman refused to allow the deputy to take either her fingerprints or her photo for rapid identification and was placed under arrest.

The woman was placed in the patrol car, but had to be taken out and re-cuffed with her hands in front of her because she was unable to sit in the car with her hands behind her "due to her age."
