A man and his intoxicated date were in Magnolia Restaurant when his date spewed a sting of profanities at a loud volume.  The man paid his bill and left, assisting his date in staying upright.

The primary officer called the number used to make the reservation and left a voice mail for the man, who was presumed to be the man at the restaurant previously. With the exception of the woman presumably being drunk in public, no other crime had been committed and as all parties were gone prior to police arrival, no other action was taken.
