Get Offa My Grass!
Illustration for Creative Loafing's crime report. The item:
A man was in his garage when he discovered that there was a stranger lying on the grass in his front yard. Perhaps dissatisfied with the accommodations outdoors, the strange man allegedly tried to open the back door of the house — to no avail — and then helped himself to some water (from where, the report doesn't say). In a bizarre finale, the stranger apparently proceeded to spray down the homeowner's bushes with some bug spray he found. Beyond pest control, the guy might've had more nefarious intentions — when police showed up and searched him, he had a yellow screwdriver in his pocket. They arrested him for attempted burglary and having tools to commit a crime.
