My MO during work is to keep the craziness for end of shift. I have spent many an hour after I was supposed to be home processing arrests that I stumbled into on my way home. This week, it's flipped upside down and all around. Thursday, I am barely on duty and on my way to the office before the secretary left for paperwork when I caught a BOLO for a suicidal dude that had sliced a wrist. Since I knew the dad, I figured I would stop by since I was nearby and see what he knew, figuring it would be nothing. I ended up finding the guy in that town and got to spend some quality time in the ER. I went and ate, then caught two calls right after that and then I had to go help my partner locate a residence. What a way to spend the first 6 hours. Then tonight................ I'm heading into the office, went on about an hour early so I could meet a victim from an incident a few months ago (and that one happened right after I came on duty, rare for me) and unscrew the paperwork screwup that I missed yesterday. I'm almost to the office and we're rolling to a fight 20 miles away. Get there, nothing, so I leave to get back to the office and end up seeing what the local PD had after a short pursuit. I finally get to the office, get the paperwork thing figured out, talk to the victim and I'm there maybe all of 15 minutes and the phone rings, the local PD needs backup to an unknown 911 call. They only had one guy available due to the pursuit. We blow out of the office and their officer gets there and calls in that he found the woman and there's a lot of blood. She will be okay, didn't get the son of a bitch that did it. We finally leave and have our monthly shift briefing at the burger joint and things quieted down. There was of course the lady I wrote a speeding ticket too. She was upset cause her BF was banging some other gal and she apparently missed my lightbar from a quarter mile away when I lit someone else up........ So end of shift comes and I'm heading home and I find a semi on the side, well about halfway into one lane, no lights and reflectors out. Needless to say I wasn't too impressed when he told me the mechanic was a couple of hours away and he was coming from Arizona. Got him a tow truck and finally got home almost 2 hours after I was supposed to be. I've got one more night to go. The blood is getting worse and it's been 11 months since the last pursuit we've been in and the boss is out of town. Wonder if anyone would be pissed if I did my shift from the comfort of my own home tonight????????????????
