Middletown Police report the following incidents:
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH FINGERPRINTS, SECOND-DEGREE CRIMINAL MISCHIEF, INTERFERING WITH OFFICER — At 1:09 a.m., police were called to Grand Street about a vandalized car in which the victim said his girlfriend's sister, Sherry T. McDaniel, 42, of Thomas Street, asked him questions and became upset, according to the report. Police say she hit the passenger side tail light with her hand, breaking it, causing about $300 in damage. The report says McDaniel was intoxicated, combative and refused to sign paperwork.
INTERFERING WITH OFFICER, BREACH OF PEACE, SECOND-DEGREE THREATENING, SECOND-DEGREE UNLAWFUL RESTRAINT — At 1:16 p.m., Alexander N. Mason, 69, of High Street was at the Dollar Tree Store on East Main Street screaming at a woman and blocking her car, according to the report. An officer on scene told dispatch Mason, who had a knife, had been angry that day about going to court and was in the plaza to be picked up by a social worker who would bring him and his girlfriend to the court date. "Mason began swearing and yelling and then smashing his phone and ripped up money," the report says, then kicked the social worker's state of Connecticut car while holding a knife. A witness corroborated the story and the "knife," police say, was a Ozark Trail Leatherman tool with the flathead screwdriver portion displayed.

BREACH OF PEACE — At 9:36 a.m., a woman called police saying she was on Willow Bee Lane to feed feral cats in the woods and was harassed by Dawn Dorman, 30, of Willow Bee Lane, who had done the same in the past, according to the report. Documents say Dorman threatened to beat the woman's face in, swore at her and said, "how many times do I have to tell you to slow down!" When the woman tried to leave in her car, police say, Dorman blocked her in a cul de sac with her own vehicle. The report says Dorman told officers the victim speeds down her street all the time, denied blocking her in and was trying to get her license plate number.
SIXTH-DEGREE LARCENY, ATTEMPT TO COMMIT CRIME — At 1:52 p.m., police were called to the parking lot of Wesleyan Potters on South Main Street about Jonathan Meehl, 31, of Hunting Hill Road, who was rummaging through unlocked cars, according to the report. Meehl, found by police at home, told them he had been in the hospital all day and was walking on Birdsey Avenue, then admitted he was looking in the cars for spare change. Other witnesses told detectives Meehl had done this before and the report says he has several health issues, has a self-admitted severe heroin addiction and lengthy criminal history.
FAILURE TO RESPOND — At 11 p.m., police were called about a car parked in the nature gardens on Randolph Road. The report says one of the occupants, Rajahn Johnson, 18, of Cubeta Road, had an outstanding warrant.
SECOND-DEGREE BREACH OF PEACE — At 10:16 p.m., Keith A. Easter, 21, of Miller Street was involved in a large disturbance on Portland Street, according the report, who arrived to find people pointing at Terrance L. Davis, 40, of Portland Street, who was walking toward the railroad tracks. The report says he fought with another person and was following him to continue fighting. Davis, who was unsteady on his feet and slurred his words, told detectives he was at home drinking with his wife when he heard noise outside and was confronted by Easter who "got in his face." A pushing match ensued, the report details, and Easter punched Davis in the face. Easter testified he was playing with children, having fun, and Davis came out, threatening and screaming at him, and when Davis looked about to hit him, he defended himself. Both were charged.
