Sometimes birthdays are not the happy occasion we wish they were. Clinton Public Safety Sgt. Ritter responded to Beauregard Street at 9:28 yesterday morning to investigate an assault report. He found a verbal dispute between a woman and her 17-year-old daughter, who was reportedly angry because it was her birthday and she was depressed. The mother indicated the daughter had threatened to pull her hair out if she called the police. Sgt. Ritter advised both to try to get along. The daughter told the officer she was sorry and would behave herself.
