Weird … I thought the police gave people medals for doing this:
Demarcus Edwards of Peoria Heights was waiting at a traffic light at War Memorial Drive and University Avenue about 11:40 a.m. when a green-haired Russ Sarver of 2631 Farmington Road got out of his car and punched Edwards in the face, according to a Peoria police report.
Sarver then got back into his car and Edwards pursued, following him to a residence at 1020 W. Virginia Ave., according to police.
Police said that when they knocked on the door, Sarver answered and admitted he had punched Edwards. He was booked on a charge of battery and given a citation for disorderly conduct.
Sarver said Edwards had cut him off twice while texting, and he had been having a bad day.
There is nothing … NOTHING … in this report about what punishment Demarcus Edwards faces. I think 10 lashes would be appropriate.
So … apparently all those public service announcement messages about how bad it is to text and drive was just hot air.
People acting true to form on the wrong side of the river:
PEKIN —About a dozen police officers, nearly all that were available south of Creve Coeur, took part in breaking up the second of two fights at an apartment complex early Sunday. In all, three young people went to area hospitals and seven to jail.
A total of 11 people were charged after the two apparently unrelated fights broke out before dawn at an apartment at 1215 Florence Ave. Eight created what amounted to a melee shortly before dawn, an officer said.
“One female hit a male, then another male came to his aid and just about everybody got involved,” said Sgt. Jeff Little. “It sounded like six against two.”

I just left McDonalds on Western. A lady diner just has her purse stolen. She was sitting at a booth, got up to refill a drink, and some punk who was sitting nearby talking on a cell phone grabbed it and bolted. After she gave the police a report, she called a locksmith to unlock her car and replace the ignition key.

You know that home invasion/murder that happened on Mossville Road? Well, cops say the hubby did it?Wednesday, March 6th, 2013
At approximately 8:15 this morning, Detectives of the Peoria Police Department arrested Nathan Leuthold for the murder of his wife, Denise Leuthold, that occurred on February 14, 2013 at 700 E. Mossville Road. Chief Settingsgaard will address the media at 11:00 a.m. today at the Peoria Police Department.
You know what they say: The person most likely to murder you is sitting across from you at the breakfast table.
I found THIS press release in my inbox this morning:
The Chief will be available for interviews at 2 p.m. today [Monday] in his Office for media members that are interested. He will be willing to speak briefly about how earnestly the police are working the case and that progress is being made. Please know however that there are few specifics that he will be able to share at this time.
So, lets be clear. He has little new information. But if you wanna swing by and listen to how earnest he is about we are about protecting you folks out in Dunlap, he’s open to that.
Meanwhile, there were NO officers patrolling West Main Street this morning. Must be all out on patrol on Mossville Road.
They sent out a press release on this:
Peoria Police responded to 3000 block of University Street in reference to a burglary in progress. The suspect, later identified as Brian Lamb, fled the residence when he realized someone was home. While patrol officers were responding to University Street a residential alarm went off in the 1500 block of West Wilcox. Patrol saturated the area and observed the suspect running from the area of Wilcox. The suspect was captured and positively identified by the witness from the University Street address.
Lamb was brought to the Peoria Police Department and questioned. He admitted to committing seven burglaries throughout the area of the Wardcliffe Sub-division and in the area of Sherwood, Hudson and Forrest Hill Ave.
Lamb was sent to the Peoria County Jail on six counts of Residential Burglary and one count of Attempted Residential Burglary.
This investigation is still currently in-progress. The Peoria Police Department urges anyone with information about these rash of day time residential burglaries to contact the Peoria Police Department at 673-4521 or Crime Stoppers at 673-9000.
