Spotted: Council woman Susan Wengraf of District 6 jumping into a Berkeley patrol car. Sadly, our gossip isn’t as juicy as you’d might hope — she wasn’t arrested for anything like sleeping/sitting on a sidewalk in public, but was instead taking a ride-along with BPD.

Berkeleyside quotes Wengraf as saying, “I helped catch a criminal. It was so much more satisfying than a City Council meeting.” No doubt, since you clearly almost fell asleep on one of the most raucous city council meetings all year.

So basically, Wengraf’s adrenaline thrills come from riding in cop cars. Or maybe she’s just channeling her inner Beyonce.

Lesson learned: to get Wengraf to pay attention to the next meeting, taker her on a ride around the block first.
