On Willow Ave. between 8th & 9th, a man was reportedly whacked in the head with a 2×4 by three black males, wearing black hoodies. Stolen from him were his keys, and his brown leather wallet containing around $85, identification and an insurance card. Really think everything is A-OK in Hoboken?
A Hoboken Taxi driver calls in a sloppy drunk who cannot get out of his cab. Jeez – ever hear of “last call?”
Reports of yet another street fight at Newark & Hudson Streets. Jeez – you’d think at 4am, people would be tired & chill? What up with that?
Minor car accident being reported at 13th & Washington. How? How does that happen? Can someone explain?
HPD being dispatched to the outside of 1 Marineview Plaza for reports of a street fight involving “thrown glass beer bottles.” Not sure if this has anything to do with surrounding bars, or if it’s internal to the building…
97 Willow Ave., Hoboken Police dispatched to handle a “disorderly person.” How come these calls don’t happen at 11am? Oh wait, forget about it…
Hoboken EMS en route to Stevens Institute for an “intoxicated male” in a dorm. Par for the course with college living! Rock on!
Multiple reports coming in for a “disorderly group” at the Chandelier Room at the W Hotel. Translation: Drunk buffoons from out of town. Thanks for the memories!
Police picked up a homeless drunk near 27 Park Ave., and took him to HPD Headquarters – requested that EMS “bring a blanket.” Wow. Cold & Arrested. Not an ideal situation.
Reports of a street fight at 6th & Jackson. What do you think they’re fighting over?
A patron enjoyed alcoholic beverages all night at The Shannon on 1st Street – and now refuses to pay the bill. What a douchebag!
More to come later…
