One too many: At 5:41 p.m., a store employee in the 400 block of South Fork Avenue Southwest, North Bend, called police with concerns about a vehicle that had just driven into the parking lot very fast. The employee had tried to speak with the driver, but said he was rude, then threw up in the parking lot. Police contacted the driver, who had clearly been drinking, but seemed fine now.

Cows in road: At 7:26 p.m. an officer on patrol found some cows had gotten loose and were standing in the roadway in the 1500 block of Boalch Avenue Northwest, North Bend. The animals did not seem to belong to the nearby farm. Police contacted someone who got in touch with the owner, who said he would come get them, then herded the cows off the road.

Parking lot derby: At 12:16 a.m., police responded to a rear-ending in the 500 block of East North Bend Way, North Bend. They found an intoxicated woman in a car parked on the curb of a gas station. They learned that she had rammed the back of another car, a four-door silver Mercedes, which left the scene. Police arrested the woman for DUI, had her vehicle towed and located the second vehicle parked in front of a home, but could not locate the driver.

Lost: At 4:17 p.m., an officer responded to a report of a reckless driver in a white Outlander on Snoqualmie Parkway at Southeast Douglas Street, Snoqualmie. The caller said the vehicle was all over the road and had just made a U-turn and pulled into a gas station. The officer contacted the driver at the gas station and found out she was lost and almost out of gas, so had pulled over to refuel and ask for directions.

Hot dog: At 5:11 p.m., a caller in the 400 block of East North Bend Way, North Bend, called police about a dog locked in a hot parked car. The Husky seemed to be foaming at the mouth, the caller said. When police arrived, the owner was with the dog, and it appeared to be fine.

No photos!: At 8:07 p.m., a caller at Southeast Ridge Street and Fairway Avenue Southeast, Snoqualmie, reported a road rage incident. She said a man in an older black Porsche had followed her from Snoqualmie Parkway to Fairway Avenue, then got out of his car and confronted her. The caller said the man claimed she’d cut him off when merging into traffic on the Parkway and said he threatened her because she’d taken a photo of his license plate. Police contacted the driver and spoke with both him and his parents about the incident.
