Man in blue box­ers forces his way into house, tells deputies he is God.


Three men were seen se­lect­ing mul­ti­ple ar­ti­cles of sports­wear from a store in the 3100 block of PGA Boule­vard and then run­ning out with­out pay­ing. The store’s loss pre­ven­tion of­fi­cer chased the per­pe­tra­tors and saw them jump into a wait­ing car with a fe­male driver and race away. The mer­chan­dise was worth ap­prox­i­mately $700. The loss pre­ven­tion of­fif­fi­cer was able to pro­vide po­lice with a de­tailed de­scrip­tion of the men, the ve­hi­cle they got into and give them the li­cense plate num­ber. He said that the store does have surveil­lance cam­eras but he was not au­tho­rized to re­lease the footage with­out per­mis­sion from the cor­po­rate loss pre­ven­tion of­fice.


A car trav­el­ing with­out head or tail­lights at night was pulled over near the in­ter­sec­tion of RCA Boule­vard and Al­ter­nate A1A. Af­ter mak­ing con­tact with the driver, the of­fi­cer no­ticed he had red, glassy eyes, his face was flushed and he smelled of an un­known al­co­holic bev­er­age. The man said the car was a rental and he was con­fused about op­er­at­ing the head­lights. He was asked to exit the ve­hi­cle and per­form a road­side so­briet y test. He did and did poorly on the test. He was ar­rested on a charge of DUI. He was apolo­getic and said, “This is a wake-up call.”


Af­ter be­ing told by the man­ager of a store in the 400 block of West In­diantown Road that they did not sell mi­crowaves, a man be­came irate. He left the store but re­turned a short time later and be­gan curs­ing at a cashier and knocked over a dis­play case. When po­lice ar­rived, they found the man out­side and asked him what the prob­lem was. He replied that he didn’t have any shoes and that his money was miss­ing. The man then turned and be­gan to walk away. When the of­fi­cer told him to stop he raised his hands and said, “Oh, we are go­ing to jail.” The of­fi­cer asked him if he in­tended to fight them and he said, “As long as you don’t spray me I’ll fight you.” He then as­sumed a fight­ing stance and said, “I’m go­ing to fi­fight you.” When the of­fi­cer pulled out his Taser the man turned and placed his hands be­hind his back al­low­ing po­lice to place hand­cuffs on him. He was ar­rested on a charge of disorderly con­duct.


A ve­hi­cle was stopped on Delaware Boule­vard af­ter it was seen swerv­ing, nearly strik­ing other cars and ex­ceed­ing the speed limit. When po­lice made con­tact with the driver they im­me­di­ately no­ticed his blood­shot, glassy eyes and the over­whelm­ing smell of an un­known al­co­holic bev­er­age on his breath and com­ing from the in­side of his car. Through slurred speech the man told the of­fi­cer that he had not been drink­ing. He also stated that he had no med­i­cal con­di­tions but had taken the drug Xanax re­cently. Af­ter he ex­ited the ve­hi­cle he had trou­ble stand­ing and swayed side to side. When asked if he would par­tic­i­pate in a road­side so­bri­ety test he stated he just wanted to go home and asked for a ride. He even­tu­ally re­fused to take the test and was ar­rested on a charge of DUI. Later, at the BAT cen­ter, he pro­vided a breath sam­ple that showed he was more than four times over the le­gal limit for in­tox­i­ca­tion. Af­ter be­ing pulled over near the in­ter­sec­tion of Mil­i­tary Trail and High­wood Cir­cle for turn­ing her emer­gency flash­ers on and off and nearly strik­ing an­other ve­hi­cle, a woman told po­lice she wasn’t speed­ing. Though the of­fi­cer ex­plained to her mul­ti­ple times that speed­ing isn’t the only rea­son a mo­torist can be pulled over the woman was still in­sis­tent that she was not speed­ing. The woman, who had blood­shot, glassy eyes and smelled of an un­known al­co­holic bev­er­age told the offi cer that she was head­ing home from the beach. The woman was asked to par­tic­i­pate in a road­side so­bri­ety test. She ac­cepted the in­vi­ta­tion, did poorly and was ar­rested for DUI.


Af­ter per­form­ing oral sex on a man in ex­change for sev­eral beers, a woman was asked to pro­vide more ‘ser­vices’ with­out the beer pay­ment. The woman said she de­clined and was slapped in the head be­fore leav­ing the man’s home in the 400 block of Jupiter Lakes Boule­vard. She said she did not feel well af­ter the as­sault and went to Jupiter Med­i­cal Cen­ter in the 1200 block of South Old Dixie High­way. Once there, staff no­ticed there was blood on her shirt and con­tacted po­lice. The woman told po­lice the blood was from self-in­flflicted in­juries, that she did not want to press charges against the man and signed a waiver of prose­cu­tion.


Though he had ar­rived at his des­ti­na­tion in the 400 block of U.S. 1 and paid his fare, a man re­fused to exit a cab. The driver ap­proached a nearby po­lice of­fi­cer and asked for his as­sis­tance. The of­fi­cer asked the ex­tremely in­toxic ated man why he re­fused to get out and the man told him be­cause he didn’t have to. The of­fi­cer asked him sev­eral times to get out and at the last of­fer­ing was told, “(ex­ple­tive) you, I don’t have to.” The man was phys­i­cally re­moved from the cab, placed un­der ar­rest for disorderly in­tox­i­ca­tion and re­sist­ing ar­rest with­out vi­o­lence and put in hand­cuffs. Af­ter be­ing placed in the back of the pa­trol car the man passed out and was taken to Palm Beach Gar­dens Med­i­cal Cen­ter as a pre­cau­tion. There he re­gained con­scious­ness, be­came bel­liger­ent with the staff and pulled out his IV. He was even­tu­ally med­i­cally cleared and taken to jail.


When a deputy re­turned to his pa­trol car, parked at a plaza in the 3600 block of North­west Fed­eral High­way in Jensen Beach, he de­tected the odor of pot com­ing from the ve­hi­cle next to his. He saw cigar wrap­pers in plain view in the car. He moved his pa­trol ve­hi­cle to an­other spot in the lot, then watched as a man and woman walked to the pot-smelling car. As they drove off, the deputy fol­lowed them, then he ini­ti­ated a traf­fic stop. A check on the driver showed his li­cense was sus­pended. When asked about il­le­gal drugs in the car, the driver handed over a can­is­ter with pot in it. Par­tially smoked mar­i­juana cig­a­rettes were also found in the ve­hi­cle. Both the man and woman were given no­tices to ap­pear in court.


A man was ar­rested af­ter

he loaded a cart with gro­ceries in a store in the 11700 block of South­east Fed­eral High­way in Hobe Sound, then walked out with­out pay­ing. The mer­chan­dise, which in­cluded toi­let pa­per, soda, chips and chicken, to­taled $90.37. The store man­ager told a deputy that the man was seen on se­cu­rity video steal­ing gro­ceries about a week ear­lier as well. The man was taken to the county jail

A deputy on pa­trol found two peo­ple af­ter hours in a park in the first block of Av­enue M Ex­ten­sion in Fort Pierce. The woman, who said she was from Fort Laud­erdale, pro­vided her name and birth date. The man, claim­ing to be from Mi­ami, gave the same in­for­ma­tion to the deputy. He also said it was his first time in St. Lu­cie County. Un­able to con­firm the man’s iden­tity, an­other deputy used a fin­ger­print reader. It was de­ter­mined he was pre­vi­ously ar­rested and booked into the St. Lu­cie County Jail in 2009. Charged with pro­vid­ing a false name to a law of­fi­cer, the man got a re­turn trip to the jail. The woman was re­leased at the scene.


A deputy tracked down a beer thief in the 5000 block of La Salle Street in Fort Pierce. The man’s de­scrip­tion, in­clud­ing the bike he used for his get­away, matched that of the per­son who stole beer from a gas sta­tion in the 5100 block of Turn­pike Feeder Road. The deputy ar­rested the man and took him to the county jail.


A man and a woman were at home in the 5300 block of Palm Drive in Fort Pierce when they heard a knock at the door around 9:22 p.m. The woman opened the door to find her next-door neigh­bor stand­ing there, clad only in blue boxer shorts. He pushed his way into the house, but the cou­ple pushed him back out­side. They tried to close and lock their front door, but the neigh­bor kept bang­ing and push­ing the door. The cou­ple called 911, and when deputies ar­rived, the cou­ple pointed out the man’s house. The deputies knocked on the neigh­bor’s door and were greeted by a man wear­ing blue box­ers. When asked for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, the man said he was “God.” Although he tried to slam the door, deputies were able to re­move the man from his home and take him into cus­tody. He was ar­rested and taken to the county jail.


A woman’s 14 K go l d bracelet and a di­a­mond wed­ding ring were stolen from a box in her mas­ter bed­room.

Credit and debit cards, $200 and an iPhone adapter were taken from an un­locked ve­hi­cle in the 2700 block of North­west Hatches Har­bor Road. She said there was an unau­tho­rized use of her debit cards, but the bank would not dis­close any in­for­ma­tion with­out a po­lice re­port.
