An Oakland Police dispatcher called out a report of assault with a deadly weapon last week. It should have been routine. But the dispatcher paused, obviously confused, when she added that the weapon reported in the attack was a vacuum cleaner.

Evidently, the suspect — who was on the run — had beaten a police officer with the appliance. Now, THAT is a case of domestic violence.

    What a waste! We need our vacuum cleaners in good shape to clean up our streets!
