Surprise police: Man’s interrupted dream led to assaults
An interrupted dream apparently inspired the assault of a Surprise police officer and two medical workers late Monday.
Surprise police Sgt. Mark Ortega gave this account of the situation:
An employee at the Chevron gas station near U.S. 60 and Parkview Place walked up to Surprise resident William Meadows’ pickup truck and knocked on his window when he noticed the man was laying down inside.
Meadows, 47, awoke and became violent.

Examiners found nothing to explain Meadows’ behavior.
The Surprise man was booked into Maricopa County jail on suspicion of three counts of aggravated assault and one count of disorderly conduct.
Sleeping man + Surprise police = trouble!
