Police caught up with a man, who told an officer he was in a fight with three guys near Valpico Road and Elissagaray Drive, but he couldn’t articulate what happened.
“He mumbled about losing a ring, cell phone and a blue bag, however, all three items were located in his vehicle.”
The officer later talked to a man and woman in a motor home, both very drunk, who said they were in a nearby park earlier and got in a fight with three guys. She said she ran and fell and hit her head, but wanted no medical attention. An officer said they were too drunk to explain what happened.
