Police Blotter: Much Ado About ... Something

Officers responded to the Harbor View Bar regarding a report of a brawl outside the facility. One man attempted to hide in a vehicle while several others rapidly walked away from the scene.

Domestic Disturbance
Officers responded to a residence wherein a landlord/mother was upset because a tenant had been playing with her infant and she did not want him to do so. A loud argument ensued as a result of the tenant's undesirable behavior. Officers determined that no crime had occurred. The tenant elected to retire to his room.

Officer stopped a driver for speeding and after detecting an odor of alcohol in the vehicle, asked the driver to submit to field sobriety tests. The driver was not charged with any crime but did elect to find alternative transport for the evening.

Suspicious Person/Activity
Vehicle owner asked an officer to remove from her tailgate the drunken young man seated thereon. The man, who was indeed intoxicated and also belligerent, refused to cooperate and suggested the officer get help. He became quite compliant when the number of officers rapidly doubled, and agreed to leave the area.

Fire Safety

Drunk Disturbance
