Hoboken police and fire blotter: 2/6/2011

Hoboken crime and fire action: February 6, 2011

Various noteworthy incidents, crimes and fire-calls throughout the day for Sunday, February 6, 2011. This post may be updated and “bumped” periodically.

  • 1:00am (2/7): Foot Pursuit (i.e., “free workout”)
    HPD was recently involved in a foot pursuit near 6th and Marshall Drive… and apprehended some kind of suspect. They were either wanted for something nefarious – or were caught in the act. Either way – good job HPD!
  • 12:47am (2/7): Man Down!
    Reports of a “Man Down” downtown (near the Chock Full of Nuts). Anyone wanna take bets on whether booze was involved?
  • 11:07pm: Pit Bull Dog Bite!
    Just reported – a Pit Bull bit two “mammals.” One man and his dog, were attacked by a Pit Bull near 801 Madison Street. Oh boy, more bad PR for Pit Bulls – when in fact it’s the owners that are usually the problem…
  • 10:55pm: “Falling coolers above!”
    Reports that someone threw a cooler off the Skyline Condo Building downtown… Wonder if it was an angry bi-polar ex-councilperson?
  • 10:20pm: Street Fight
    518 Washington Street – “Street fight, headed towards 6th Street…”
  • 8:30pm: Wandering Drunk
    In the area of 2nd and Jackson – reports of a drunk walking in and out of traffic. Me thinks he bet Steelers and the under for the first half…
  • 4:20pm: Warm weather + idiots = ?
    Reports of kids throwing snowballs at the intersection of Newark and Harrison. Luckily it’s not convertible weather yet.
  • 3:45pm: Learn to cook
    Another false alarm of fire at 800 Madison. HFD still has a tough time navigating city streets due to snow – and drivers still block hydrants. Thank God it wasn’t a real fire.
  • 12:40pm: More snow cleanup
    River St. between 1st & 2nd to be closed in both directions while more icy, dog poop-filled mounds of snow are cleared away. Wonder if the city will shut thoroughfares down in the summer, if a kid drops a snow cone on the street…
  • 12:30pm: Leaky Car
    12th & Washington – reports of gasoline leaking from a parked vehicle. HFD responded, and rectified the situation. Washington St. was closed for about 10 minutes.
  • 8:40am: Pedestrian vs. Car
    At the corner of 2nd & Jackson – initial reports that a NYC taxi cab struck a pedestrian. However, after details became clearer – it was a drunk that “fell on the hood of the taxi.”

More updates to come…

Thankfully no real local teams were in the game tonight. The drunken incidents might have been worse depending on the outcome.
