On Sunday, March 9, at about 7 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to a report of domestic violence at a house near Moore Road and La Cañada Drive. Police were told the husband was threatening to kill himself with a knife. When police arrived, the wife was in her car in the driveway and the husband was standing in the garage. He told police that he had a drinking problem and that him and his wife had an argument. He was detained in handcuffs. Though it was determined the man didn’t want to kill himself, but was using that as a way to get attention, according to his wife. The husband was arrested for domestic violence disorderly conduct because he tried to pry the car window down and said she had until the count of three to give him to phone or he would break the car window. He also was arrested for cruelty to animals for kicking the family dog. He was transported to be booked in the Pima County Jail. 


On Sunday, March 9, at about 9 a.m., an Oro Valley police officer in the area was stopped by an employee of the Hallmark at 10525 N. Oracle Road. The employee told police there was an aggressive woman in front of the store. When police met with the woman in question, she was sitting outside the store, sitting on the sidewalk. She was not wearing any shoes or pants, but had a hooded jacket wrapped around her upper body. The woman, who was aggressive toward and cursing at officers, began to walk away. At that point, police arrested the woman for indecent exposure, as she was not wearing any underwear. After detaining her and talking to witnesses, police took the woman out of the police car to put a cover over her. When police tried to put her back into the car, she began pulling away and starting kicking the officers. She was put into leg restraints and booked into the Pima County Jail for indecent exposure and resisting arrest.
