Pardon the interruption . . .
But without further ado give some thought, if you will, to this – If you ever get the idea that the men in blue of Largo’s finest have time on their hands and little to do, guess again.
There are some wild folks that Largo’s cops are called on to scrimmage with occasionally and whose behavior would lead hard core sensation lovers aghast.
Some of this stuff would make great movies (Warning: nudity, violence, language).
Where do these upsetters of peace, violators of law, adherents to insane behavior come from? Do they drift down from the wilds of Dixie and Levy counties, from the backwaters of Georgia (originally peopled by folks England definitely did not want)?
Here, from the dry as dust files of the Largo Police Department (enlivened by a portion of the citizenry that seems bent on having their definition of a good time) --
On Sunday some weeks ago, units responded to a mobile home park on Clearwater-Largo Road. Seems there was a report of two 15-year-old females who were partaking of alcohol, forbidden by law and good sense to such folks of tender age.
It turns out that one of the youngsters had gone to her 23-year-old friend’s residence (not in the park) and then went seeking the 15-year-old’s boyfriend.
Somehow or other the older female, who had been drinking, ended up in the MHP at a particular residence where the occupant, a man of some 44 summers, gave the 15 year old some beer to drink, emphasizing hospitality over judgment, a state of mind often brought about by indulgence with fruit of the vine.
While at this location, the 23-year-old woman decides that she needs a shower before heading home to her husband and as this process unfolds, the older man can’t resist the idea of such refreshment and probably carried away by lubricious thoughts strips down preparatory to joining the woman in the shower.
According to the police report, the 15-year-old is a witness to these proceedings. (As to any possibly activities in the shower beyond soapy laving, the 23-year-old later pronounced that she was upset that the guy got in the shower with her but “nothing happened.”)
Meanwhile, the step-father of the 15-year-old who is otherwise occupied with the showering pair, inquires of the 23-year-old woman’s husband where his daughter is.
It occurs to them, after some questioning and investigating, to check out the mobile home park. While there, the stepdad sees the girl leave the residence that had been the site of an exercise in personal cleanliness moments before.
Refreshed from his sojourn in the shower, the 44-year-old occupant of the MPH residence alights from his trailer and threatens the father of the step father who had gone along for the trip, “riding shotgun,” as it were.
This results in the stepdad defending his dad by decking the 44-year-old and once he shook off this blow was the recipient of citation from the police on the scene for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and exposing himself.
The step dad who initiated the fisticuffs got hit with a battery charge.
Does this seem convoluted, confused, hazed by effects of the grape – all, to be very frank about it, stupid?
But this is what Largo’s finest experience more days than I can tell you about.
