What is a word that describes when a fugitive begins to make furtive movements?

"FIGITIVE", as in "as I interviewed suspect, he became nervous and figitive".

This officer also noticed a unique foul odor "comming" from the suspect and saw a red dye on suspect's hands. He remembered from the police academy that "red phrostriase" is used in making meth. This led to "reasonable suspicsion".

Had an officer testify this week in a case in which he was attempting to lay down a spike strip on the interstate.

He got up to testify and said that he was waiting in the "medium" of the interstate for the car to approach. I didn't have the heart to correct him and he repeated the mistake another three or four times during his testimony.

As I was preparing for a suppression hearing I came across the following wonderful sentence in the warrant:

"Your affiant further alleges that weapons found on the said premises are sizeable as indicative of drug dealing since possession of a firearm tends to demonstrate a likely hood that the dealer took to prevent contraband, paraphernalia and the proceeds "money" form being stolen similarly as other tools of the trade 'scales, plastic baggies, cutting equipment and other narcotic equipment which are sizeable would be kept'."

I just stumbled across this one, written by a defendant. (All capitalization in original, unfortunately.)

"It's going to be a MALICIOUS-PROSECUTION, (NOEL & VOID)".

That was a folk duo from the sixties, wasn't it?

Years ago I handled an appeal for a man convicted of possession of heroin with intent to deliver. Lots of testimony about the heroin under the table, how the heroin got there, who's heroin it was, what was to be done with the heroin, etc. Fortunately the court reporter used the word heroine throughout the transcript--which made for a much more interesting read!

Okay, anything's possible, but I'm going to assume that our juvenile prosecutor did not actually say what's reflected in the record as being his response to a hearsay objection: "Submission by departing deponent".

Deputy states that the defendant made "a regestized statement" about stealing car.

Sorry, y'all, to resurrect this old dead horse, but I read something in some SAFPF records that I just couldn't believe. And this was written by a SAFPF counselor, no less:

"The defendant was sentenced to 10 years deffered of judification."

My apologies, but either this is really funny or (more likely) the week has been toooooooo looooong.

"The female was then heard saying "Don't kill me", "Don't beat me." and "Get the #$#% away from me" in a very distressed MANOR.

Here's what seems like a new one to me: a fellow who pleaded guilty to the Class A "Mistemeanor" offense of tampering with a government record.

A good cop can always sniff out the bad guys. I guess this explains the following from a theft report:

"Defendant emitted to the thefts..."

Exactly how much beer would be contained in "3 pictures of beer"?

Just curious.

I don't know, Bob. All I know is that the officer wrote that the defendant told the officer that he had consumed "3 pictures of beer", which would probably be less intoxicating than 3 pitchers of beer.

And alot less fattening.

I hope they were different from the pics in a recent report I read where the officer noted that he took several "steel" photographs of the evidence. Can't wait to publish those to the jury.

I'm not sure I understand any of this because I am "DE LEXUS".

I think they would only be less fattening if they were pictures of light beer . . .
