Dirty Dishes Lead to Arrest in the Ingleside Neighborhood

There are in fact some instances when dirty dishes can be considered a crime.

Such is the case in the Ingleside neighborhood where two inhabitants got into a fight over the dreaded chore of cleaning plates and cups. According to police, the female victim was laying on the couch, gabbing away on the phone when the suspect came into the room, holding a plastic plate.

The suspect ordered her to get off the phone and do the dishes. But the victim flat-out refused to clean them, and continued with her phone conversation.

The suspect threw the plate at the victim, hitting her in the face. While the victim did not suffer any injuries from the flying dish, she still called police and pressed charges against the suspected neat freak, who was later arrested on suspicion of battery. 

Sounds to us like the issue here is much larger than a few dirty dishes.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
