Rough Job

Warm night + alcohol + loud music + alcohol + rowdy people + alcohol + someone telling the rowdy people not to be so rowdy + alcohol = Any one? Any one? That's right, a 911 assault call.

We got a call around midnight at one of the local rented out halls. There was a large party going on with lots of drunk people. We had actually driven by it earlier in the shift and surmised that we would be back later. You gotta love how predictable this job can be sometimes.

While the crowd was getting out of hand two lowly security guards tried to keep the peace. They should have called the cops. The first security guard got knocked to the ground and then kicked in his head. While this was going on another assailant stole his Maglite. When the second security guard came to the assistance of the first she was knocked up side the head with the flashlight. Fortunately for them someone else called PD. By the time that we arrived everything was calm.

The first guard got off easy. He just had some bumps and a bruised ego. The security officer that was treated like a pinata wasn't too bad off considering. She had a good size laceration right at the hairline that had stopped bleeding before our arrival thanks to some direct pressure and a towel. She denied having been knocked out and said that her head didn't even really hurt. She refused to go by ambulance instead opting to have her coworker take her to the ER to get checked out. 

Next time, duck.

Hey there,

Sorry but I was unable to find any "contact me" buttons, but I was just stopping by to say thanks for the good reads on your blog and for all of your support towards firefighters. I was just wondering if you would be willing to link to a new firefighter site [] I set up that focuses on helping those interested in becoming firefighters. I think it would be a great resource for your site, and I would be happy to return the favor. Let me know if this is something you might be interested in doing. If not, thank you for your time and keep up the good work (looking forward to the next post)!

Warm regards,

-Rich (
