Some of you may remember my 2 previous postings concerning the harassment calls by my ex-wife to the NYS police. We are in the middle of a custody battle that seems to be getting nastier by the day. Friday night, at about 2:30am I, as well as all my neighbors in the cul-de-sac I live in were woken by the flashing lights of a patrol car, and the pounding on my door of a trooper. Needless to say, my dogs and my neighbors dogs were quite vocal. There were 2 troopers, in 2 cars. The female trooper, despite the request of the male trooper with her, refused to turn of her lights. I gues I should add that the male trooper was here on 4 previous occasions when my ex made BS calls, so he had a pretty good idea what was going on, but was there to do his job. My ex had called to report that my son had called about 1am, crying and telling her I was drunk and he was scared. She accused me fo grabbing the phone and hanging up and refusing to answer it when she called back. They had me wake my son up so they could question him, and as you have already guessed, he said he never called. The male trooper was apologetic, saying he hoped we understood he was just doing his job, and, while I wasn't happy about another visit, I realize he has to do what he has to do. The female trooper, who had never been there before, well let's just say she had quite the attitude, and didn't seem to care that she woke up all my neighbors. I am just glad the male trooper was with her, because I really think she could have made a good situation very bad. She wanted to cuff me and have me sit on the kitchen floor while all this was going on, and it took the other trooper a good 5 minutes to get her to agree to not to. They got into quite a heated argument at one point. This makes the 18th time the police have been called by my ex since december of 2010, over nothing. It is also the first time I have had a negative attitude from one of the troopers called here. To add insult to injury, Child Protective Services is doing another investigation on me, the 4th in 6 months. According to the "anonymous" call, I have been allowing my son to go unsupervised with his .22 rifle and shoot in our backyard. This time the CPS investigator has offered to testify on my behalf in family court, because of the harassing charges and what she fears is the emotional damage my ex is doing to our son. My ex is going for a court ordered mental health evaluation(so am I, it is standard procedure). I wish I could be a fly on the wall at that meeting.
