Scanner reports 7-23-14
updated: Jul 23, 2014, 7:00 AM

By Roger the Scanner Guy

Wednesday Humpy Day. I've been eating Habit Burgers for 2 Days. I can't stop I don't know why I feel as though there's some type of addiction kinda like Jays Potato Chips. A kind subscriber sent me a gift card from the Habit and I cannot stop eating there. I guess when the credit runs out Rabo Bank is right around the corner. I like how everything is in the HOOD Nice and cozy like.

I had the weirdest nightmare the other night I guess maybe because I was thinking of getting one of those mobility scooters. I can't afford one right now. A few years ago my doctor prescribed me a wheelchair because I have a lot of pain sometimes and cannot always walk very well. It had a hard time with my weight so I hardly ever used it just when I had to. I had this nightmare that my wheelchair was a motorized wheelchair without an engine or anything; it was real fast. In the nightmare it was raining really hard and I was riding my wheelchair along the bike lanes. It started speeding up and I couldn't slow it down. People were jumping outta my way I was rounding bends going 40-60mph the nightmare was very vivid. Finally I was on San Ysidro Road heading toward the freeway it was just starting to get dark, raining very hard and there were pot holes full of water. I was doing 60 or more heading toward oncoming traffic vehicles had their lights on I was going to crash I just had this feeling and I knew I had to jump so I did. My high speed wheelchair did a header into what I think was a Bentley. The vehicle tore the chair to shreds. There was a scratch or two on the vehicle. I walked up to the crash scene the man who had been driving the car standing there looking at the crumbled wheelchair. I said "Sorry man it wouldn't stop I had no control." The man kinda looked like Jeff Bridges from the movie Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. He just kinda stood there smiling not saying a word, smiling. Suddenly all these brown spots began to appear on his face and his head took on a different shape he turned into the Creature from the Black Lagoon, bit my head off and ate it. I woke up after that scared the HELL outta me that nightmare it was so real. And this was before I ate 7 hamburgers from the Habit. Kinda sounds biblical huh?

Monday Evening I heard a Domestic Violence call at Cacique and Milpas. I walked down the driveway and took a look around the corner SBPD had an RV stopped over at Circle K. I heard over the Scanner that there was PC for 273.5 and the victim was there with the police officer. After a time the abuser was led out of the RV to the back of it where police handcuffed and arrested him was placed in the back of a police car which then pulled out of the parking lot onto Milpas and was heading toward the other entrance so to avoid all of the vehicles parked into the gas station. Out of nowhere came a bicyclist riding the wrong way on the sidewalk weaving obviously UI on something right in front of the police vehicle. The Officer hit the brakes to avoid an accident, stops and opens the passenger window to communicate to the idiot. I thought I heard him yell something like "I was on the sidewalk." I didn't hear what else he said but it kinda sounded like he was telling her off. She sat there for a second then took off having a prisoner to transport. That bicyclist was a real idiot. Bicyclists like that make things rough for the rest of them.
