  • On Friday, April 18, 2014 at 06:49 PM, officers were dispatched to a residence on South Main Street in reference to a male at the resident’s front door, claiming to be God. The male was banging on the front door and when the caller answered it, he came towards her, prompting the caller to slam the door and lock it. The male then proceeded to kick out the window panel next to the door in an attempt to gain entry to the home. Upon arrival, an officer located the male in the driveway of the residence. At that time, he was wearing only a yellow t-shirt and was nude from the waist down. The male began walking toward the cruiser as the officer pulled up and he had his hands up. He asked the officer what day it was, and his actions appeared to be drug induced. The officer advised him to stop. He immediately got down on the ground but then stood up, refused to respond to commands, and approached the officer in a menacing manner. The male's actions caused the officer to deploy his CEW, or Taser, so he could be taken into custody. The male was later confirmed to have abused several illegal drugs prior to the incident.

  • On Friday, April 18, 2014, at 11:25 PM, an officer was dispatched to a residence on Hazel Street in reference to an unwanted male on the property looking in through the bedroom window. The resident was unaware who this male was or why he was near her residence. Upon arrival to the area, the officer noticed a male walk from the south side of the residence in question towards the roadway. The male noticed the officer’s cruiser and stopped walking, raising his hands in the air. The officer observed the male was unsteady on his feet while walking and had a very strong odor of an intoxicating beverage coming from his breath as he spoke. The officer asked the male if he was aware of where he was at and he said he was unsure. The male was able to advise the officer he lived on a street nearby. The officer asked the male how many intoxicating beverages he consumed this evening, and he stated "apparently way too much." It appeared his intoxicated state caused him to be confused as to what street he was on when trying to attempt to go back home. Kevin Wilhelms, age 39 of Amherst, was cited for Disorderly Conduct by Intoxication and given a courtesy ride to his residence.
