The blotter is derived from recent central dispatch records and incident reports of area police agencies.
Sullivan County Sheriff's Office
A man "not taking his meds" was reportedly walking around a county mobile home park. The caller stated the suspect's pants were "falling off" and he was going door to door to find a place to sleep. Three minutes later a dispatcher was advised the man is, "having relations with dogs." Police responded to the scene, with a report making no mention of "relations." It does state two dogs were at the home, with one being "extremely aggressive." Meanwhile the man, whose buttocks were exposed, "continued to have a full conversation on his own." He was transported to the hospital by EMS.
A man requested police check on his girlfriend, who, "still lives with her husband." He claimed the husband is "mean to her" and he hasn't been able to reach her in two days.
