Right... this is the famous opening lead into the Jackass' videos where the guy says "he'll squash the next beer can on his forehead." Followed by, "trust me I know what I'm doing..."

A man carrying a purse and the police can't find him? I could solve this problem. Check the local gay bars. I should've been a cop.

9:56 p.m.: A caller reported some juveniles threw a bottle at his car on the 100 block of Lasata Drive. Police issued a warning.

- I'm assuming no damage was done to the car if it was hit with the bottle. It may have been a plastic one?

I think if it was glass, a dent and paint would have been scraped from the car.

So, I guess no damage was done if ONLY a warning was given? If damage was done, would they &/or their parents be cited?

Maybe the police issued a warning to the caller???

When a potential employer looks at the city and reads the Tracy Press to see what we are like, they read comments like Tinfoil’s and conclude that Tracy is a homophobic, racist, and ignorant group. They take their business elsewhere. It makes some of us angry and others sad. We are not like this.

Tinfoil,

I hope your wife/girlfriend/mother gets their purse stolen, and nobody can find them, and the thief gets away with their rent money. Carma, pull your feable mind out of the gutter and get a life and quit posting your closeminded comments.
