Police blotter: Man accused of breaking into apartment, snacking on chicken wings


Man had A snack AND A shower after breaking into apartment, police say

A 32-year-old man broke into a woman's apartment and snacked on her leftover chicken wings, according to St. Petersburg police.

A witness saw Michael Pimental of St. Petersburg breaking into the apartment on Nov. 9 at 2001 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, where he rummaged through her drawers, kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Along with the chicken wings, he made himself two cans of soup and took a shower using her bath gel.

When questioned by police, Pimental said, "I didn't break in. The door was open," according to an arrest report. He was arrested on a burglary charge.


Deputies arrest woman who called them to arrest neighbors for barking dog

A woman who authorities say asked deputies to arrest her neighbors because of their barking dog was instead arrested herself after disturbing the neighborhood while drunk.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Nina Taylor, 55, was screaming at her neighbors about 8 a.m. Nov. 12 because their dog was barking. The neighbors went inside, and Taylor walked through their gate and rang the doorbell repeatedly for half an hour.

Deputies responded to the home off Mermoor Drive in East Lake. Taylor continued yelling, demanding that deputies arrest her neighbors over the barking dog. They arrested her on a disorderly intoxication charge.
