    Boise Police on patrol witnessed a fight break out early Sunday morning (March 14th) just after midnight in front of a bar on the 500 block of West Main. Officers saw the suspect punch the adult male victim repeatedly. As the officer attempted to stop the fight, he identified himself as a police officer. The suspect punched the officer and had to be taken to the ground to be handcuffed. During the scuffle the suspect, who appeared to be very intoxicated at the time, refused to follow any instructions given by police. As officers attempted to place the suspect in a patrol car, he again began to resist officers by refusing to allow a search of his person and struggling to prevent being placed in the vehicle. The suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.

    Charges:Driving Under the Influence (DUI)(F)

    Boise Police observed a vehicle stop in the roadway, blocking traffic, in the westbound lane of Taft Street Friday evening (March 12th) at approximately 9:00 p.m. Officers stopped the driver. The suspect, who appeared to be under the influence of intoxicating substances at the time, failed several field sobriety tests. Boise Police Drug Recognition Experts have reason to believe the suspect may have been under the influence of a controlled substance. A blood sample was obtained for later evidentiary testing.

    Arrested: Brittney E. Fulkerson, 20, Boise

    Charges:Grand Theft (F)

    Boise Police responded to a report of a theft at a retail store on the 400 block of North Milwaukee Friday (March 12th) at approximately 9:00 p.m. Store employees tell police that they witnessed the suspect conceal clothing items and then leave the store without paying for them. When officers searched the suspect's belongings they found clothing items believed to have been stolen from other stores earlier in the day. Officers later located additional items in the suspect's vehicle that evidence indicates had also been stolen from other stores that day. Due to the aggregate value of the times, estimated at roughly $300.00, and the limited time frame of the criminal episode, the officer charged the suspect with Grand Theft. The suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges.

    The Boise Police Organized Retail Crime Unit has developed a positive, productive working relationship with loss prevention agents from many local retail stores, large and small, local and national chains. The goal of the BPD Organized Retail Crime Unit is to work with retailers to reduce theft and fraud, crimes that can impact consumer prices.
