Saturday Night PD Action
Hoboken Police have crazy busy night
Maybe it’s the MLB Playoffs, the change of seasons, recent wacky weather, or perhaps lack of summer shore houses – but for a while tonight on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel, things got frenetic.
Between around 2:30am and 3:00am – the “drunks hit the fan” simultaneously – there was a car accident at 6th and Washington requiring medical assistance – and some kind of assault / fight at the 2nd Street parking garage. Details still forthcoming, but apparently a “Hispanic or light skinned black male, wearing a red leather coat, and carrying a camera” was involved in a fight where three or four individuals were injured – one possibly seriously. This, while other patrols and incidents were taking place around town (passed out drunks, 911 calls, loud parties, etc.)
At this point, (it sounded as if)Hoboken Police were very short-handed, and were having a difficult time handling the “large crowd” at the parking garage… Both Stevens Police and the Port Authority Police were dispatched to help out. The male suspect was not found.
Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance was also very busy – with help required from Union City.
On a side note, apparently drunks living in or coming to Hoboken are some of the most physically fit people in the country, as detailed in this video report:
