— Police were called to 133 N. Market St. at 3:40 a.m. Saturday for a report from Richard E. Parrish, who wanted police to remove a drunk person from his room. Police spoke with the woman, identified as Connie Dattilio, and she claimed that Parrish stole her phone and would not leave until she got it back. Parrish said he did not steal anything and even attempted calling Dattilio’s phone while police were there in an attempt to locate it, but it could not be found. Police warned Dattilio several times that she needed to leave or she would be taken to jail. Dattilio did leave, but was out on the sidewalk when police left and said she had nowhere to go. She reportedly told police she would walk to the Lisbon laundromat and sleep there until she was allowed back at the North Market Street home after sobering up. Police tried giving Dattilio names of people they know she is affiliated with that she could possibly stay with, but she refused to leave until she got her phone back. Another man also told police that he could hear Dattilio yelling from his apartment on the first floor. Parrish later came outside and returned Dattilio’s phone, which he said he found on her dresser and it was on silent, which was why it could not be found earlier. Dattilio was able to give police the name and address of a relative on McKinley Avenue, and she was taken there, but could not stay when the woman living there told police she did not want her to stay due to prior history she has with Dattilio. Police then placed Dattilio under arrest for persistent disorderly conduct and took her to the police station. She was then transported to the county jail.
