Anna Maria City

No city reports

Bradenton Beach

Oct. 12, 1700 Gulf Drive S., Coquina Beach, no valid driver’s license, loud stereo. Officers stopped a vehicle with a loud stereo as it was exiting the beach. A records check revealed the driver did not have a driver’s license, and he said he was not legally in the country, according to the report. He was arrested.

Oct. 13, 1800 Gulf Drive S., Coquina Beach, domestic battery. The complainant said she and her boyfriend got into an argument at the beach that escalated into him hitting her as they drove from the beach. She asked him to take her to the hospital, but the number of police cars parked in front of Manatee Memorial Hospital kept him from stopping, according to the report. He drove her to Blake Medical Center, where she was treated for a swollen lip, bruises and scratches. She agreed to press charges against him and he was arrested.

Oct. 13, 1600 Gulf Drive S., Cortez Beach, warrant. A man was stopped by officers for being on the beach after hours. A records check revealed he had an outstanding warrant from Taylor County, Fla. He was arrested.

Holmes Beach

Oct. 10, 5600 block Guava, aggravated assault/battery. Officers responded to a call of a man swinging a golf club near a car. The car’s owner wanted him to stop. Officers asked the man, who appeared drunk, to go inside his house. Officers were later called back to the scene after the man approached a lawn service man, exchanged words with him and then struck him on the forehead. Witnesses agreed the man struck the worker, and the man was arrested.

Oct. 10, 4400 block Second Avenue, battery. Officers responded to a domestic dispute between an estranged couple. She said he struck her; he said she struck him as well. He was arrested.

Oct. 11, 3007 Gulf Drive, Anchor Inn, DWI/drugs. Officers responded to a report of a hit-and-run accident in the parking lot of the bar and located the vehicle allegedly involved. After questioning the driver and passenger, it was determined that the passenger, Tiffany L. Barklow, 25, of Holmes Beach, had been driving the vehicle that caused the crash and had subsequently switched seats with the other woman in the car. Barklow was given field sobriety and breath tests and was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. She also was charged with drug possession after officers discovered pills in her purse. The driver at the time officers stopped the vehicle was charged with driving with a suspended license. Both were taken to jail.

Oct. 12, 100 block 47th Street, theft. The complainant said someone took two lawn chairs, valued at $150 each, from her backyard.

Oct. 13, 4000 Gulf Drive, Cafe on the Beach, trespass. Restaurant staff members requested a patron leave the establishment. The man became unruly toward officers, and a records check revealed he had a previous trespass warning against him at the restaurant. He was arrested.

Oct. 14, 2800 Gulf Drive, drugs. Officers stopped a minivan with no tail lights or license plate lights. A records check revealed the driver’s license was suspended. Officers then noticed unmarked prescription pill bottles in the van, and also uncovered paraphernalia and marijuana. The driver of the van, Jerry D. Baulding, 36, and the passenger, Angela K. Franklin, 38, both of North Carolina, were arrested on drug charges. Baulding also was cited for driving with a suspended license and no working tag lights.

Oct. 15, 4000 Gulf Drive, Manatee Public Beach, warrant. Officers noticed a person in a car acting suspicious and checked records of the driver and passenger. The passenger had an outstanding warrant from Hillsborough County, and she was arrested.
