Baseball reference. At 2:17 a.m., a man on Orleans Drive said his estranged wife was sitting on his couch with a baseball bat. He told officers she "swung but did not connect." Martinez police officers reported abating the problem.
Football, too. On Richardson Street at 2:16 p.m., neighbors complained about a group of men "cursing and playing loud music, drinking vodka and throwing football around in the street." Police gave them some sporting advice.

Trashed. At 7:17 a.m. on Arreba Street, a teenager in a black trench coat accented with fur was going through a resident's garbage, without the manners to place the trash back in the can when she was done. When the resident objected, the girl said to hang on, she only needed a few more things.
Suspicious U-Haul truck. Around dawn, police received complaints about a U-Haul truck driving slowly through the streets, perhaps casing the neighborhood. Complaints came from Berrellesa and Arreba streets, and from Stonecreek Court.
