Disorderly Conduct 2

An officer was dispatched to Riva’s Taco Shop on NW 5th Street on a report that a male suspect had broken a window and defecated by the door. The description of the subject matched an individual who the department had two prior calls regarding over the course of the night.

The officer asked the male why he was hitting a window of the establishment and why he defecated on the sidewalk. The male stated he was angry because he was cold and wanted shoes and a warm place to stay. The officer asked him if he was meaning to break the window and he said “no,” but also “well yeah,” and stated he felt if he tried harder he could have broken the window.

Another officer spoke with the original caller, who was an employee of the restaurant. The employee stated that while the window didn’t break, the male hit the window a couple of times, which left scratches. The employee also stated he witnessed the male defecate on the sidewalk.

The officer who first made contact with the male issued him a citation for Disorderly Conduct in the second degree and then provided him an escort to a men’s shelter.
