MISSING PERSON: At 5 p.m. Dec. 19, Buckley officers were contacted regarding a missing male threatening to hurt himself.

The case was forwarded to BPD's investigations division for follow-up.
DUI: At 1:47 a.m. Dec. 20, an officer was dispatched to a possible drunk driver. Once behind the suspect vehicle, the officer initiated a stop on Pearl Street at Jefferson Avenue when he saw the vehicle travel into the oncoming lane while turning a corner. The driver performed some voluntary field sobriety tests, and was placed under arrest for driving under the influence.
WRONG LANE: At 8:13 p.m. Dec. 21, an officer was patrolling Ryan Road when he witnessed a vehicle turn a corner wide and travel into the oncoming lane. Half the vehicle's width had crossed over the newly painted (and visible) double yellow line; it traveled for some distance that way, even as traffic approached, the officer noted in his report. He initiated a traffic stop, during which the driver refused to submit to field sobriety testing. He was placed under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The bike was logged into police records and the case report was forwarded to the investigations division.
THEFT: On Dec. 22, a South A Street resident reported jewelry stolen from their home.
DISORDERLY: At 11:51 p.m. Dec. 25, an officer contacted a male who was walking along state Route 410. The subject became agitated during the stop, throwing his wallet at the officer before lunging at him. He was taken into custody and booked into jail.
