The Commerce Police Department reported a relatively quiet past week, recording just five arrests and responding to three incidents.
A property line dispute on Shankle Road resulted in the arrest of Shawnee A. Baker, 54, 246 Shankle Road, on a disorderly conduct charge.
According to the arrest report, an officer responded to an ongoing dispute over a property line that had just been surveyed. He met with Baker, who confronted her neighbor, a 63-year-old white male, who was marking the property line.
“So you’re going to start this stupid (expletive deleted) again?” she told the officer that she said to the man. She also told the officer, “you’re not going to stand here and defend him,” the report indicated.
The officer said he tried to calm Baker down, but “she would not allow me to speak as she continued to speak over me using profane language.” Eventually, as the language continued, the officer arrested her.
En route to the jail, the officer wrote, Baker repeatedly apologized “and advised that she knew she was wrong.”
