A downtown woman called the cops saying that her grandson was "not acting right and needs to go to the hospital." When officers arrived, they found him standing in a corner of the kitchen with his fists clenched firmly at his side and his eyes darting around the room.

When an EMS approached the young man to take him to the hospital, he punched the technician in the face.

A man was reported to be causing a disturbance, making general threats, and saying "someone is going to die tonight" on the street. Also known as an acceptable reaction to being told Chipotle is out of guac.
