Police Blotter 1/16

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:

A Clovis junior high vice principal called police about 9 a.m. on Jan. 9 to report that a battery had occurred shortly before Christmas break.
A 15-year-old student advised police that he had been hearing rumors around school that he was going to get “jumped” for reporting an incident that led to the arrest of another student, and on Dec. 18 was punched in the side of his face by a fellow student. Police contacted the other student’s mother who asked if he had apologized; police told her he had not. The second student said he had hit the first student because he had “ratted” on a friend.
Police responded shortly after midnight Saturday to a public fight in progress at the 100 block of Chanticleer and observed a number of people running from the address. After stopping two of them, officers discovered that a 19-year-old Clovis male was so intoxicated that he could not stand without assistance and was being escorted away from the scene by another person who said he was going to drive the man home.
Further investigation found a party with a number of juveniles between the ages of 16 and 20. A state alcohol agent was called to the scene to take over investigation of the party and she issued a number of citations to juveniles present.
Police received an anonymous tip shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday that a restaurant was illegally serving alcohol on Sunday.
The manager said the incident occurred during a busy period and that a waitress had provided four mugs and two pitchers of beer to a table of customers who presented out-of-state licenses. When the waitress realized she was serving on Sunday, she removed the beer from the table and advised the customers of the law.
The manager was advised that the incident would be referred to the alcohol enforcement office for further investigation.
About 6 p.m. Monday, police responded to the 200 block of West Manana where a 13-year-old male reported he was taking out the trash when he was attacked by three unknown males about 18 years old wearing blue clothes.
The victim said the only thing said to him was, “Do you want more?” He said the three ran down an alley after they attacked him.
Police responded shortly after midnight Tuesday to a store where a customer had reported a shattered window to a cashier.
Officers observed the window being removed by store staff to keep it from falling on customers. A check of the window indicated that it appeared to have been shot by a BB or pellet gun.
