It's time once again to check in on Captain Greg Corrales and his cheeky roundup of the week's arrests and citations in and around the Upper Haight.
First off, he picks out his own highlight of the week's events, which was this unfortunate abuse of a beat officer on Mother's Day.
Mother's Day - May 12th, 5:20 p.m. - Haight & Ashbury - Aggravated Assault on a Police Officer
As the Haight Street Beat Officer was citing a thug for possession of an open container of hooch, he was at- tacked by a second goon. As the officer was fighting his assailant, the first subject sprayed the officer directly into his face with pepper spray. The officer continued to defend himself against his first assailant’s attack, de- spite the effects of the pepper spray, when the original thug got control of the officer’s baton, with which he began to use to strike the officer. Two heroic passersby assisted the officer until other officers arrived and took the two lowlifes into custody. Another day on the beat!
Then we have some other highlights, using Corrales's droll choice of old-timey words.
