The man who was pushed signed a waiver of prosecution.

Sept. 7


7600 Eagle Creek Drive, Sarasota

Information only: A man called the Sheriff's Office because a woman came to his door, knocking repeatedly while threatening to kick his butt. The man said she was angry because he had a dog in his house and dogs aren't permitted in the neighborhood. The man said he felt threatened so he called the Sheriff's Office. He was advised to call back if the situation escalates. He said he wanted the incident documented.

Sept. 8


12000 block of 30th Street Circle East, Parrish

Theft: A man called the Sheriff's Office because he had filled up his vehicle with gas due to approaching Hurricane Irma, and the next morning had just a quarter of a tank of gas. His vehicle had been parked in his driveway. He believes someone siphoned the gas from his tank. A neighbor has a security camera that partly covers the man's driveway so deputies had scheduled to look at that tape. His tank held 30 gallons.
