CHATHAM, Ont. - A police force in southwestern Ontario is taking a lighter look back on the year.

Chatham-Kent police have totalled their arrest numbers for 2011 and broken down the results by astrological sign.

Aries appears to be best represented — with 203 people of that sign among the almost 2,000 arrested.

The force says its officers responded to 24 calls involving naked people, 40 involving urine and 22 involving feces — mostly from animals.

In one case, officers were called to a Value Village store after someone accidentally donated cremated remains.

In another, police charged a man who was dragging his snowmobile behind his vehicle without a trailer — in May.

Other cases involved disputes between neighbours over grass and one over a cut phone line, which turned out to be the fault of a squirrel.
