Often routine police patrols around the 'Boro uncover some pretty unique situations.
While on early morning patrol around the historic Rutherford County Courthouse, Murfreesboro's Officer Harris saw a young male out-cold on the east side. A pair of pants, one boot and socks were under a bench about 15-feet away. The 23-year old was clad only in underwear and undershirt. It was a little after 5:30, and the sun had just risen--so the local resident had probably been hidden by darkness for many hours. David Starnes was arrested for public intoxication. His bond was set at $250 and he first appears in court on July 16th.
Murfreesboro Police were conducting a knock and talk Thursday afternoon at a Sewanee Place apartment. While talking with the 31-year old female, a records check revealed that Marshall County had a felony capias for her. Africa Monique McQuiddy was taken to the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center and held for Marshall County.
Often the police have to protect us from ourselves. That was the case around 9:15 Thursday night when they stopped a 56-year old man who was riding his bicycle along a very dark area of Hunt Street. The self-employed handyman did not have any lights on his bike, so officers stopped to warn that he was in danger. A records check showed there were two local warrants, so David Espy was booked in the local jail and his bond was set at $15,000.
