I see absolutely no reason not to make this a regular NewsCut category.
From this week’s Woodbury Bulletin police blotter, a police call that gives new meaning to the classic line, “Come and get me, copper!”
Police responded Dec. 10 to a Woodbury residence for a report of children refusing to go to school. The complainant said his high school-age children refused to go to school because driving was unsafe and they should have a snow day. An officer declined the complainant’s request to drive the students to school. The officer learned the children had been taken to school by their mother.
