‘Normal’ Yeller 1: A man on Locust Avenue was seen by a woman pacing around, yelling bad words at himself and generally appearing scary. A woman inside a place of business did not want to go outside with the man there. Police arrived, straightened things out and advised the woman that it was OK. The man was known to police and that was his “normal self.”

Spooky.
