A wheelchair-bound man told police Tuesday night he had put up with his wife’s “crap” for years. The woman asked an officer what he thought of “living with that rotten (expletive).”

In an unrelated incident, a Brownwood man told City Marshal Dean Kilburn that Kilburn was being mean to him for arresting him on a marijuana charge. That didn’t stop Kilburn from taking the man to jail.
Alexander Ward V, 20, was booked into the Brown County Jail Tuesday on a charge of possession of marijuana under 2 ounces in a drug free zone and possession of drug paraphernalia, jail records states.
Kilburn went to a home in the 1300 block of Morris to serve a warrant on a woman. The home is 215 feet from Woodland Heights Elementary School, Kilburn’s report states.
A man opened the door, told Kilburn the woman wasn’t there and allowed him to come in to search. The man stopped at a coffee table and picked up a glass pipe, and Kilburn told the man to hand it over. Kilburn then saw a bag with marijuana in a bedroom, and the man said it was his brother’s, Kilburn’s report states.
The man told Kilburn he should let him go since he had allowed Kilburn into the home.
