Warrant arrest: 2:02 a.m., 502 8th St. NE. When police learned that a sex offender who'd failed to register as such was living in a northend apartment complex, an officer showed up with a warrant to arrest him. When the officer knocked at the guy's door, the guy opened it six inches, immediately declared he had nothing to with a burglary that had occurred recently in that area, didn't want to talk and slammed the front door so hard he broke a square glass insert on the door. When the officer told the man through the door that he had a warrant for his arrest, and that he needed to come outside, the guy opened his door and the officer arrested him.
