An apparent stray bullet frightened a family whose members were washing their boat Sunday afternoon at Denton Airport.
A couple, their two daughters and a family were washing the boat with a bucket of water about 5 p.m. at their hangar in the 5500 block of Airport Road, according to a police report. They heard a sound and something hit the bucket near one of the daughters. The second daughter heard something hit the ground at her feet and picked up a spent .45-caliber full metal jacket bullet.
They walked to the next hangar and talked to a neighbor, who said he heard three shots fired but didn’t know from where they came.
Arriving officers looked for someone with a gun but found no one.
2600 block of Mayhill Road — Callers said there was an intoxicated man burglarizing a pickup just before midnight Sunday.
Arriving officers saw a man leaning into the truck and appeared to be trying to get the radio out of the dash. Officers started giving him commands to put his hands in sight, according to the police report.
The man told the officers, “Me, I’m on bars,” referring to the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, according to the report. He fought the officers as they handcuffed him and tried to run, but they were able to take him into custody and charge him with burglary of a motor vehicle and resisting arrest.
U.S. Highway 380 east of Loop 288 — An officer responding to a report of a reckless vehicle saw the eastbound car weaving among lanes about 4:25 p.m. Sunday. The officer got behind the driver with his emergency lights flashing, trying to signal the driver to pull over to the right.
Instead, the car swerved into a left-turn lane and then continued east in a westbound lane. When the car began swerving in the westbound lanes and shoulder, the officer pulled into the oncoming traffic lanes with lights flashing to try to warn drivers of the danger.
Then the driver began crossing all the lanes again back into the eastbound lanes. Oncoming drivers had to take extreme evasive measures to avoid striking the car, the report stated.
The officer was finally able to pull over the driver. She said she had been running errands in Denton and was on her way home. She was charged with driving while intoxicated.
2500 block of Charlotte Street — A woman reported about 9:40 a.m. Sunday that she was standing inside the open doorway of her apartment when she noticed a man standing in the open doorway of his apartment. He was looking at another female neighbor standing on her balcony, the victim said. He lowered his pants to his knees, exposing himself to both women.
The victim said she was shocked and upset by his actions.
1100 block of Meadows Avenue, Lantana area — A man told a Denton County sheriff’s deputy Friday that his wife was checking their bank account and noticed that $80,000 was missing.
