Police received a call about a person slumped
over the wheel in a vehicle in the First United
Methodist Church parking lot at 1001 Pleasant
Street on Aug. 14 around 10 a.m. When they arrived,
they found the man to be dead, which was confirmed
by the Polk County Medical Examiner. Photographs
of the scene were taken for evidence, but there
is no indication of foul play, according to
reports. An autopsy will be performed to determine
the cause of death.
Dispatch received several calls from residents
of the 1200 block of East 32nd Street around
3 p.m. on Aug. 10 regarding two at-large pitbulls
attacking people and children — some reports
even came from cops working the Iowa State Fair.
Several witnesses admitted to arming themselves
in preparation of having to possibly shoot the
dogs. When police arrived, a gray and brown
pitbull were standing outside on the sidewalk,
so they herded them back into their fenced-in
yard. That’s when the gray one allegedly attacked
Officer Jeff Robinson, who then fired one round
from his shotgun into the animal. The injured
dog was later taken to a veterinary hospital.

Two women were walking away from the fair around
12:30 a.m. on Aug. 14 and were followed by another

trying to provoke a fight. The alleged suspect
continued her threats even in front of the officer,
so “it appeared (she) was the main problem,”
according to reports. She reportedly had all
the signs of someone who was drunk, so police
gave her a breath test, which registered at
.179. She was arrested for public intoxication
and disorderly conduct. CV
