The Only Thing Spiked is Your Crusty Hair
At approximately 11:25 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10, Isla Vista Foot Patrol officers patrolling the intersection at Embarcadero Del Mar and Pardall Road observed a 19-year-old female vomiting over a short wall in front of a residence.
When the officers contacted the suspect, she told them someone must have “spiked” her drink. After vomiting again, the suspect said to the officers, “I think I drank too much,” and “I was drinking at an ATO party.” When the suspect finished vomiting she had to be held up by the officers in order to maintain her balance.
The suspect was arrested for public intoxication and transported to the Santa Barbara County Jail, where she was housed pending sobriety.
‘Is It Against the Law To Be Drunk?’
At approximately 1:55 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, IVFP officers patrolling the 6600 block of Del Playa Drive observed a 21-year-old male walking in the middle of the street.
The officers watched the suspect kick a plastic keg cup in the road, lose his balance and stumble into a parked car. When the officers contacted the suspect to check on his welfare, they noticed a strong smell of alcohol on his breath and person.
When officers asked how old he was, the suspect said, “Twenty-two. I mean, I am going to be 22.” When officers asked how old he was now, the suspect said, “I am almost 22, but I am only 20.” The suspect then said, “I am drunk. Is it against the law to be drunk?”
The suspect was arrested for public intoxication and transported to the Santa Barbara County Jail, where he was housed pending sobriety.
Bunch of Savages Out There
At approximately 5 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4, IVFP officers patrolling the 6700 block of Sabado Tarde Road observed three males, one 19-year-old and two 20-year-olds, pushing and throwing a bicycle down the street toward the officers.
The officers stood next to a parked car until the suspects reached them, observing the suspects throw the bicycle and jump on it for approximately 30 seconds.
When officers approached the suspects, they said the bicycle belonged to them, but they were unable to tell the officers the proper brand of the bicycle. The suspects then admitted to the officers that they had stolen the bicycle from a front yard further down the street.
The original location of the bicycle was never determined. After all three suspects were positively identified, they were released, pending identification of the victim, and the bicycle was booked into evidence.
Even Drunk Men Don’t Ask for Directions
At approximately 1:55 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, IVFP officers patrolling the 6600 block of Del Playa observed a 20-year-old male, walking eastbound with a friend, almost run into a parked car.
The officers first arrested the suspect’s friend for public intoxication. When the officers asked the suspect what he was going to do now that his friend was arrested, the suspect said he was supposed to stay at his friend’s residence.
The suspect did not know the address, the street name or how to get to his friend’s residence. The suspect told the officers he was going to “wander around” until he recognized where he was. The officers noticed the suspect’s speech was slurred and his eyes were watery and bloodshot.
Based on the suspect’s level of intoxication and his lack of familiarity with I.V., officers determined he could not care for himself. During the completion of the paperwork, the suspect passed out and only became responsive after the use of smelling salts.
The suspect was arrested for public intoxication and transported to the Santa Barbara County Jail, where he was housed pending sobriety. While in the transport vehicle, the suspect repeatedly vomited on himself and the interior of the vehicle.
