SWAT comes knocking at Sleep-Off

 

What originally started as a simple phone call by a concerned neighbor led to the Bowling Green City
Police and the Wood County Sheriff Department SRT converging at the scene of an allegedly unstable
individual. According to the radio scanner, when the police arrived at the door they thought they heard
the sound of a shotgun being cocked. This led to the SRT come a knocking. After breaking down the door,
they found the man passed out on the floor of his garage. It makes me wonder if you can get charged with
inducing panic if you are asleep at the time they arrest you.

I’m glad that they erred on the side of caution and brought out the extra manpower; I guess it goes to
show you never really know what the situation is until you actually breach the door. Thankfully, this
time the suspect didn’t hurt anyone.
