I live in a condo, and my upstairs neighbor (a renter, not owner) has a destructive addition to alcohol and Rx pills.
Last night whilst battling his demons, he was making such a racket that we were justified in calling the police. When they showed up, he wouldn't open the door or respond. The fire department was called to get in. They decided that breaking in through the milk door (bldg. circa 1928) was preferable to kicking in the front door. This involved cutting a hole big enough to crawl through into the larger closet that the milk door opened into. Here's a pic of the aftermath (see below).
When they got in, they found the 'gentleman' semi-conscious on his couch surrounded by empty booze bottles and at least one Rx container. He was half naked, and apparently found it inconvenient to crawl to the bathroom to expel his bodily waste (sorry to be graphic, but we are talking #1 and #2).
He was not completely unconscious, and was able to stumble his way with some assistance down the hall, three flights of stairs, and through the atrium. We had to bleach-clean everything that he might have touched in the common areas after the ambulance carted him off.
So, this guy is going to be evicted, but since the pills were 'legal' (though how he used them was certainly not), the owner can't boot this guy out immediately. To the contrary, our renter-rights laws force the owner to give a 90-day notice!
Given the event that just happened when officers attempted to serve the eviction notice in College Station, TX, and given that this guy is clearly not of sound mind, nor free of substance abuse, I feel justified in urging authorities to restrict this guy from purchasing a weapon. I know this may sound like blasphemy, but I feel it justified... especially with the Aurora shooting so close in the rearview mirror.
So, after the long intro, here is my question: How do I go about doing this? Who should I contact? What considerations should I make before contacting anyone?
Thanks so much for any words of encouragement or guidance. DC is a great resource.
edit: Forgot to mention that I learned last night that he had been hauled off in an ambulance only a couple of weeks prior... so this is not a one-off event.
