Dispatcher: On this criminal sexual assault, I'll have to read you the rest of this off the air.

Unidentified Caller number one: Oh, come on. Share it with the rest of the class.

Dispatcher: OK, I'm gonna read it to you 'cause it may help catch the offender. That old Jeffrey Fisher's gonna fall out of his chair when he hears this: [complainant says offender] went into her cousin's room twice and asked her to perform oral copulation on him--before the third time when she woke up and he was rubbin' his penis on her lips. She asked him to leave and he said, nope, he's not finished, he's not goin'. Before it happened again, she called the police. Film at eleven.

Unidentified caller Number two: Copulation--isn't that a consenting act between two police officers?
