Police Blotter: The Smell Was Fine, The Problem Was Noise

Also, a couple of domestic issues—one that you won't believe.

Police Blotter: The Smell Was Fine, The Problem Was Noise

Some Rancho Santa Margarita revelers were engaging in a smoking good time on Sunday, but their equipment was too loud for its own good.

A caller to the Orange County Sheriff Department was annoyed by neighbors who were smoking marijuana in a nearby RSM residence. 

The caller wasn’t bothered by the smell of the smoke. No, he was good with that. It was the loud noises coming from the bong they were using that he found so troublesome.

According to the caller, he could hear the smoking device being used by each participant, and he found the din to be unbearable.

The call came in around 10 p.m. on Sunday, from the 29700 block of Melinda Road.

We totally understand why this fight occurred

This has bad idea written all over it. A woman allows her ex-husband to live at her residence. However, trouble erupted when he invited his new wife over without getting his ex-wife's permission. Where do we even begin to ask questions? The disturbance call was made Tuesday, 10:37 p.m., from Via Cuidado. 

Man arrested after loud fight with woman

OCSD was contacted because a distraught woman claimed that her boyfriend punched her in the face before pushing her to the ground.

The 22-year-old man then left their shared Rancho Santa Margarita apartment on foot, although deputies eventually caught up to the man.

He said he pushed the woman, who apparently hit her head when she fell, but he did not punch her, he said.

He was taken into custody and held on $50,000 bail at the Musick Facility.

The call came in around 3 p.m. on Sunday, from Via Amistosa.
