• The same woman featured in the Sept. 22 log reported that her ex-boyfriend once again damaged her 03 GMC Yukon, although this time it happened on Jos. Campau. The ex also once again violated the PPO that she has against him (this time the song quote is from The Eagles: “Get over it”).

• A woman reported that her niece assaulted her around Nagel and Carpenter. She complained of right shoulder pain but refused EMS treatment. The same woman also reported at the same time that her ‘95 Chrysler was taken by “unknown persons” (but let’s be honest: 2+2=4, and I think we can all do the math here).

This week the prize goes to the ex-boyfriend who can’t seem to move on. Guy, somewhere in this world there is a girl named Stella who is just waiting for you to mess up big and win her back.
