Police Blotter: Man arrested after hallucinating attackers

A Dickinson man believed to be having crack-induced hallucinations was arrested on multiple charges early Saturday morning.

Kenneth Dupuy, 50, called the police to tell them seven men were in his house “attempting to harm him,” Dickinson Police Capt. Dave Wilkie said.

When officers arrived, Dupuy pointed to an empty corner and asked officers if they could see the men he claimed were trying to harm him.

Officers asked if Dupuy had done drugs recently, and he told him he had smoked crack a couple of hours before making the call.

Dupuy was transported to the law enforcement center, where officers found a marijuana pipe in his shoe.

He was issued a citation for misuse of 911 call, ingestion of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was set to have his initial appearance in court Monday afternoon, according to court documents.

Warrant served on man following dispute

Officers responding to reports of a dispute Sunday afternoon between an ex-employee and his boss ended up arresting the former employee on unrelated charges.

Mitchell Grebe, 50, had accused his former boss of keeping some of Grebe’s tools in his car trunk. The unnamed boss called officers to report the dispute.

When they arrived, they served a warrant on Grebe for failure to appear on a DUI, failure to appear on a refusal and having an open container on a public street.

Grebe was taken to jail and held on a $750 cash bond.

Man trying to break up fight breaks leg

An unnamed male sustained a broken leg while trying to intervene in a fight at the Southside Saloon on Sunday night.

Staff at the bar told Dickinson Police officers had broken out between two males. The injured male was not involved in the fight, but when he went in to break it up, he somehow fell to the ground and “heard his leg crunch,” Capt. Dave Wilkie said.

The man said no one intentionally hurt him, and that it was just a freak accident.

The incident is still under investigation. Officers are reviewing video to determine what happened.

Teen cited for assault after report of drinking

Three Dickinson teens received minor in consumption citations Friday night, with one receiving an assault citation.

Officers were dispatched to the Dickinson Dike around 11 p.m. to respond to reports of minors drinking. When they arrived, they issued citations to a 16-year-old female, a 13-year-old male and a 15-year-old male.

The older male received a citation for simple assault as well, for allegedly punching the younger male in the face because he “thought he squealed” on the group, Dickinson Police Capt. Dave Wilkie said.

All three teens were released to their parents.
