While on patrol, police saw two juvenile girls (age 14 and 15) run across the lawn of the United Methodist Church at 12:04 a.m. Sunday - well past curfew. The girls gave conflicting stories as to why they were running around, so the police took them to a nearby home where the 15-year-old's mother lived. The mother was so drunk the officer could barely understand her but she told him she thought her daughter was spending the night at her friend's house. Police then located the 14-year-old's mother on East Lincoln Way and she, too, was drunk and mostly incoherent, although she was able to tell him she had urinated herself. Police then took the girls to the station and called the 15-year-old's father, who arrived and took them home for the night.
