Dalles, Oregon, is a good place not to lie to your Momma.
Last Saturday a woman called the police and said some fool had entered her home at 2:45 in the morning and fired a gun into her son’s room. The gunman ran out the backdoor. He didn’t take anything or cause any problems.
The son then admitted he was actually cleaning a gun and it went off. He told police he then stashed the gun and lied to his mother about a person entering the house. Officers seized the gun and were forwarding their report to the district attorney’s office for review.
If you’re going to shoot a gun in the house at 2:45 a.m., you damn well better make sure it includes you bleeding in some manner because, trust me on this, when Momma gets finished with you, you’re gonna be bleeding anyway.
By the way, while I was looking around to see if I could find out anything else about this story, I found a great thing. The police reports in a small Oregon town on Christmas Day. The Dalles City reports are wonderful reading. Here’s a sample. Remember: it’s Christmas Day.
A woman in the 900 block of Pomona Street reported seeing two people walk through her carport and ring the doorbell, then go on to the neighbors behind her. They both appeared to have Santa suits on. Police checked the area and were unable to find anyone matching the description.
A man in the 5200 block of Cherry Heights called early Wednesday morning to report a strange dog had been sitting near his driveway for the last 12 hours and it was weird the dog hadn’t left the area. A deputy found two dogs were eating a deer carcass.
I will save the woman who ran out of gas story for you to discover.
Thanks to TexasTrailerParkTrash for the heads up.
