At 12:22 a.m., a van ran into a home on Pacheco Boulevard.
A possible baby python was sighted at the Lotus Apartment complex on Alhambra Avenue at 9:25 a.m. What kind of parent just leaves their baby to hang around like that?
A single beer was stolen from the Marina Market on Escobar Street just before noon by a man in a 49ers jacket. He probably needed a drink after seeing how well the Raiders have been doing this season.

At 9:23 p.m., a man in a brown jacket was attempting to direct traffic at Alhambra Avenue and Escobar Street for an unknown reason. When vehicles wouldn’t obey his instructions, he got aggressive. He is my hero.

Around 1 p.m., an older woman in a pink shirt was throwing items around Safeway, causing a disturbance, all the while carrying a broom like a literal witch. This is the weirdest year on record.
A train arriving in Martinez around 3 p.m. had a passenger that needed to be removed due to behavior linked to drinking too much alcohol. The passenger was a woman said to be identifiable by the cream smeared all over her face.

A Shasta Drive resident reported that his neighbor had thrown a log at his car, causing damage, and that currently the same neighbor was flooding his backyard with water. That is some old testament type neighbor dispute.

A woman in her 20s was ranting about evil spirits, numbers and things of the like on Morello Avenue at 1:07 p.m. Give that woman a podcast.
