Just wondering, how can "misdemeanor hit-and-run" be a misdemeanor? It seems pretty serious. Does this mean a citation was issued or just that the P.D. assisted at the scene and filed a report? Thanks.

I spoke with Lt. Moule and he clarified what a welfare check means. Often a resident requests that the police check on a neighbor they're concerned about (who they might not have seen for a while or who has newspapers piling in their driveway). A welfare check with an arrest might have come from a similar call where a resident phoned police about a person who was acting suspiciously and, upon contact by the police, was arrested for another offense.
Sarah - domestic disturbances aren't always batteries or violence. It's often a loud argument and doesn't make for much news. I also hesitate to publish a story on any particular incident unless it was part of a trend.
