27-year-old Sydney Kendall was at Play Dance Bar on Church Street in the early hours of Saturday morning when she left the club, got into her vehicle, and began to throw liquor bottles from her car toward other vehicles in the parking lot. Security altered MNPD, who approached Kendall, causing her to put the car in reverse in an attempt to flee. She eventually stopped the vehicle, exited, and performed poorly on field sobriety tests. Though initially agreeing to take a breathalyzer, once she was at booking she refused to comply with any testing. As she returned from the breathalyzer room, Kendall became irate and shoved officers. She dropped to the floor, kicked one officer in the groin, and pulled on their gear as she was being held against the wall.
20-year-old Camron Ellis was jailed Sunday morning after police responded to Woodale Lane and spoke with Aaron Mitchell, who advised that he and Ellis had been together for a year. He said Ellis had been drinking and wanted to go out to a club, but Mitchell didn’t want to go out; he wanted to go to bed. Ellis kept talking and wouldn’t leave him alone, so he ignored him. When Ellis realized he was being ignored, he became angry and started packing up his belongings to leave. In the process of packing, Ellis broke Mitchell’s ceramic toothbrush holder in the bathroom. He then walked into the bedroom yelling, grabbed the water tank from a dehumidifier, and hit it against the headboard, stating to Mitchell, “You don’t think I’ll hit you with this?”
That’s when Mitchell called 911, and Ellis went upstairs, ripped the TV off the wall mount, and stepped on it. Mitchell explained that the TV belonged to him, and he had it for 2-3 years. The police observed the broken toothbrush holder, droplets of water from the de-humidifier, and the damaged TV and photographed all of it as evidence. There was also damage to the ceiling and walls from Ellis ripping out the mount. When officers tried to speak with Ellis, he wouldn’t cooperate and stated he just wanted to leave. He also refused to identify himself. Ellis was determined to be the primary aggressor and taken into custody.

Ben said that Todd arrived at the house, intoxicated, and began blaring his horn before he and Tara went outside to see what was happening. Todd then became angry and pushed Tara; Ben stepped in between them, then Todd and Ben got into a shoving match. During the incident, Ben said that Todd pushed him into a wrought iron fence, bruising his neck. Tara stated that she was uninjured by Todd shoving her. Police spoke to Todd, who said that Tara is “a bitch, a cunt with a capital C, and he fucking hates her” and that Ben “is a big fat puss.”
