Brooke Mullins, Diamond was found in the driveway of 613 Cedar Ave. He was ordered to get on the ground numerous times, but refused. Ptl.

Draper, 40, 308 E. Cottage Ave., told the officer that she was staying with her friend Linda Birchfield, 39, 409 Brandon St., when her ex-boyfriend, Zorawski, showed up and slashed the two passenger side tires on her car. Birchfield called 911 and said Zorawski had a tire tool in his hand and was threatening to smash her truck windshield. As Ptl.

He was charged with vandalism under domestic violence and evading arrest.
