Two of a kind?6/8/2016
This is even worse than detention. Dustin Diamond, 39, famous for portraying Screech on the hit sitcom “Saved by the Bell,” was put behind bars recently for a probation violation. The details of the probation violation aren’t released yet, but his original arrest was for stabbing a man in a bar fight.
Jeremy James Landon Kearney, 40, was also arrested this week for a probation violation. He was booked into Polk County Jail without bond. The details of Kearney’s original crime were not released. He probably won’t be saved by the bell either.
This information was obtained from the Polk County Crime Stoppers. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
On May 17, at approximately 10:10 a.m., reports were received of a shooting in the 1400 block of East Grand Avenue. Kamaury Watson, an 18-year-old Des Moines resident, was located with a gunshot wound to the back. He was transported to the hospital for further treatment. Des Moines Police Detectives have identified two persons of interest — Maurice Boone Jr., 23, and his brother Brian Boone, 17, both Des Moines residents who are wanted for further questioning. Detectives are requesting the community’s assistance in locating these two persons of interest. Evidence at the scene indicates Watson wasn’t the only victim. A male with Watson was also shot and wounded, but he fled as police responded. He is described as being a black male in his late teens. Detectives are also asking the community for assistance with identifying this second victim. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Youngblut of the Des Moines Police Department at 515-237-1468 or Crime Stoppers of Central Iowa.
Blotter — Des Moines
Police were tripped to the 1600 block of East Walnut Street on May 24 about an alleged assault. Upon arrival, the victim informed police that the suspect had grabbed her by the shirt at chest level. The victim showed the officer where the suspect had grabbed her, and there was redness and scratches. The suspect also ripped the victim’s shirt. When the officer asked the suspect what happened, he stated that he was arguing with the victim because she may have cheated on him. This made him angry, and he grabbed her, but he claimed he never hit her. The officer placed the suspect under arrest and took photos of the injuries to the victim. The victim and the suspect are parents of the same child.
Hit and run
Police were called on May 24 to check on an argument at 1400 Pennsylvania Ave., where a female was screaming for help. She had been living together with the father of her 4-year-old daughter. When officers met with the victim, she said the suspect hit her in the left eye while they were arguing. The officer said he could see a scratch on the eye. The victim also said she was trying to get away from her attacker, but he intended to follow her. A witness saw the argument and observed the suspect hit the victim, and then the attacker fled the scene.
Officers were dispatched to 918 S.E. 11th St. to the Youth Emergency Shelter and Services on May 24 to assist in a dispute between two residents. The officer followed the suspect as she walked out of the shelter, and as the staff attempted to get the suspect inside the door, she attempted to strike the staff member. The officer intervened and tried to restrain the suspect, but when the officer tried to grab her wrist, the suspect attempted to bite the officer’s forearm. The officer moved his arm in time and avoided being bitten. After the suspect was in custody, she kicked the officer several more times as she was being loaded into the squad car. CV
