Here are this week's most bizarre police calls, reports and charges. All information was provided by police reports from departments in Patch communities. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Martin, 19, was charged with felonious assault and underage consumption. Her grandfather's girlfriend was also charged with providing alcoholic drinks to an underage person. Sassy's could also face charges for a role in Martin's underage drinking.

That's my cab — A Beachwood man grew aggravated after learning that two people would receive taxi service from Solon Panini's before him. The 34-year-old took his anger out on a set of lights outside the restaurant, leading to his arrest.

Umm a tabloid would be reporting on alien sightings not the real idiotic things that people do. It isn't sensationalizing anything just reporting the facts from the POLICE blotter! If this is too low brow for you then by all means don't read it! But it can't possibly be too low brow for someone who apparently hasn't grasped the correct concept of a tabloid or tabloid reporting.

Well Allana im sure those police reports are normal happenings in cleveland hts but this is "alien" behavior in the suburbs

Ummm, Kim L., I'm a little confused. Neither one of those happenings occurred in Cleveland Heights (which is a suburb, an inner-ring suburb, but a suburb nonetheless.) One was in Lakewood, different side of Cuyahoga County, and the other one in Fairlawn.... another suburb.... many would argue a nicer suburb than Cuyahoga Falls. Anyways, there is nothing tabloid-like by reporting from the police blotter.
