Hoboken crime and fire action: August 19, 2011
Crimes, Incidents, Fire Calls & Vehicular mishaps
- 3:00am (8/20/2011): Hit & Run
Silver car struck a parked vehicle near 11th & Wash – kept driving despite a flat tire. HPD should catch up to them pretty soon. Congrats for the extra charge for leaving the scene you drunk idiot! #WINNING!
3:06am Update: Multiple cars struck. Such BS you can barely park on the street without a solid chance your property will get bashed.
3:11am Update: The driver that bashed the cars – was caught promptly at 12th & Hudson, and arrested by Hoboken Police.
3:40am Update: SEE PHOTO GALLERY OF ACCIDENT HERE.
- 2:30am (8/20/2011): Vehicular trouble
Auto accident (THREE PEDESTRIANS STRUCK) with injuries at 1st & Washington. Highly doubt booze was involved…
2:45am Update: Three EMS rigs requested – only two were available. When HPD arrived – three pedestrians were laid out in the street – one female unconscious. She regained consciousness after a few minutes. One patient being transported to Jersey City Medical Center. The rest still being treated.
2:53am Update: All three struck pedestrians being taken to JCMC. So much good that HUMC hospital we have just four blocks away does, eh?
2:54am Update: HFD “remaining on scene” after victims were taken to hospital to “clean up the blood.”
3:04am Update: A Hoboken411 reader emailed in saying that the group was jaywalking – like usual in this town of entitled idiots.
- 2:20am (8/20/2011): Lan-assault
A woman outside of Lana Lounge was assaulted. HPD & EMS racking up their frequent flier miles.
- 1:58am (8/20/2011): Mc-Attempted Suicide
Reports of a problematic individual claiming to want to kill himself inside McDonald’s at 3rd & Washington. Damnit! Happy Meal prices increased again!
- 1:55am (8/20/2011): Huge waterfront fight – with injuries
Reports of a “large fight” at Quays – 310 Sinatra Drive. At least one injured party. HPD and EMS en route. Maybe the Mayor can ban waterfront bars?
- 1:05am (8/20/2011): Man Fight & Man Blood
HPD received multiple calls about a street fight between two men near 302 Monroe Street – with one man “bleeding heavily from the head.” What could you be fighting about that you couldn’t just walk away instead of receiving a blow to the head?
- 12:50am (8/20/2011): “Man Down” (once again)
Another instance of a drunk who was unable to get from point A to point B. Reports of a man on the sidewalk in need of ambulatory assistance near Newark & River. I’m out of snippy comments for the time being…
- 12:45am (8/20/2011): Since when was “lounging” synonymous with “fight?”
Reports of a fight at 200 Lounge above Tutta Pasta. If someone can figure out how to prevent brawls at a typical club – future Nobel Prize winner.
- 12:05am (8/20/2011): Clubbin’ ain’t easy when your arm is in multiple pieces
HPD and EMS en route to the W Hotel – for reports of a club reveler with a friggin’ broken arm (likely the result of an altercation). At what point do you hang up your glitzy black shirts and say “this just ain’t worth it anymore.”
- 10:45pm: People who live next to loud bars – hate loud noises
A nearby resident called HPD to complain the loud music (on a busy Friday night) coming from Texas Arizona on River St. downtown near the PATH. I’d suspect this resident dreams of a city full of book clubs and knitting groups. Yawn.
- 10:30pm: Maxwell Place now getting checked out
After Hoboken411 reported multiple times about the nefarious activities that take place on the Pier at Maxwell Place – Hoboken Police now perform regular patrols on an hourly basis. The question remains – where will the kids do their drugs and paint their graffiti next?
More updates to come!
