In the wee small hours of the morning, my husband heard screaming somewhere outside. He could hear a woman screaming things like "HELP" and "GET OFF ME." Not good things!
He got up and listened at the window but couldn't tell exactly where it was coming from. Being a good citizen & a caring individual, he called police dispatch to report it. The dispatcher asked him to hold on for a minute. When she came back she apologized, saying that they were actually causing the disturbance.
Turns out they were trying to arrest a belligerent woman a few blocks away and she was putting up quite a fight.
