• A Deputy took a report from an R/P who received a phone call telling him he needed to come to the Sheriff's Office and pay "Sgt. Clark" $5000 bond to avoid having a warrant issued. "Sgt. Clark" advised the male he had to stay on the phone with him as he drove to the Sheriff's Office. The R/P and his mother drove to the Sheriff's Office but were suspicious so called LE before they arrived. The Deputy confirmed this was a scam of some sort and there was no warrant for the male. It should be noted that there is No Sgt. Clark that works at the Sheriff’s Office. It should also be noted that the Sheriff’s Office will never call someone and tell them to pay money or a warrant will be issued.

Evening and Night Shift handled the following notable calls:

• A Deputy responded to S Millsap Loop for a cold assault. On arrival it was reported by the R/P that another party had driven to the property on 12/13/20 where the two were involved in an argument. During the argument the other parties’ adult daughter had gotten out of the vehicle and struck the R/P. After that they then drove her vehicle towards the R/P nearly striking her, before leaving the property. This stemmed from the other parties’ ex-husband living in a trailer on the property, and her still being upset at him over their divorce. The R/P refused to press charges, did not want anyone contacted, and only wanted the issue documented in case it escalates in the future. 20-53267

Prior to his arrival, TPD arrived and conducted a full investigation to include a search of their hotel room where paraphernalia was located, despite the suspect being non-tribal.
