Police Blotter: Pumpkin Smashing, Throwing and More

It's that time of year when pumpkins turn from decorations to victims.

A 39-year-old Waukesha man was arrested for disorderly conduct after a resident in the 8100 block of West Forest Home Avenue told police the man was pounding on his door, swore and knocked over the grill on the residences patio Oct. 21.

The man, who had reported missing by his wife earlier that day, had trouble remembering what he did, according to the Greenfield Police Department report, but admitted to drinking too much and making bad decisions.

That and the following incidents were recorded in the Greenfield police log for the week of Oct. 15-22:

  • A 24-year-old man was arrested for retail theft and bail-jumping after an employee from Best Buy, 4610 S. 76th St., told police he stole two PS3 video game controllers valued at $54.99 each Oct. 15.
