Halloween fightin’

2:40am Update:

Here are some other quotes from the live action: “Send FD here! Head injuries”… and “many people claim they were assaulted, but no one knows who’s who”.. . “send more units.. we have 100’s of people one the street here”…

Sounds like they’re trying their best to handle this situation, but it seems that the PD staff is a bit strapped right now. At least one person arrested so far.

2:25am Update!!!!

Hell breaks loose in Hoboken!

First, a fight outside Teak… THEN, a report of shots fired outside Puerto Spain, multiple ambulances needed. However, cops quickly corrected those original reports indicating that it was a bottle being smashed over someone’s head. Medical assistance being dispatched to both 14th and 15th and Bloomfield. Several actors have been “identified” as one with a “Jailbreak” costume, and another in a purple “Power Ranger” uniform with glitter.

Another fight is being reported in the parking garage on Bloomfield between 14th & 15th. Many additional police units dispatched because “multiple” fights breaking out.

What are they fighting over? Who deserved the “best costume” awards?

Listen to the live scanner to hear more excitement.

10/28/2007 2:00am:

There’s usually a couple fights every weekend here in Hoboken. I wonder how many are “costume related” this weekend?

Overheard in the past 10 minutes:

One dispute was over at Mikie Squared, where a group was asked to leave by staff, and was ruled “only a verbal”.. wonder what Philly2Hoboken’s Furey has to say about that? Maybe it’ll be some kind of blog entry where he once again saved the day for a damsel in distress.

Another was at 3rd and Bloomfield near Duffy’s bar, where reports of a “large street fight” was in progress. However, it didn’t seem so bad, as officers laughingly responded that “Spock” was involved in this fracas.

Anyone see any other wacky fights between costumed bar patrons?

In fact, the fare outside the 5 boroughs is whatever you and the driver negotiate it to be, it says so in every cab.

I never pay more than $40, $35 if I can get it. That’s flat, no tolls, no tips. Don’t be a sucker and pay more than that. It’s never more than $12 with the meter running, I know because I have been in several where they left it on.

A cab from the city is technically double the meter once you cross the NYC/NJ line in the tunnels. Try explainging that to a cabbie (good luck) or negotiate a flat rate off the meter. If the cabbie is playing thick, take a cab to a street close to the tunnel entrance, then get out, then grab another cab to take you through the tunnel. You’ll save double the NYC fare. There’s always cabs in the tunnel neighborhoods.

BMac- the plane is flying to Florida with or with out you….if a cabbie takes a job to Hoboken, that’s 30-40 minutes he’s not picking up short rips in NYC at $10-15 a pop.

[quote comment=”50336″]Seen coming home from the PATH just after 5am: At the corner of 3rd and Washington, an incredibly drunk, fat yuppie guy trying to run from a NYC cabbie, trying to beat the fare.

The cabbie easily catches him and wrestles with him and yells for me to call the police. I oblige, and they arrive within 60 seconds or so, at which point drunk, blubbery guy begins to profusely apologize and…cry.

So pathetic…[/quote]
Hapu v. Lardass – very funny. You think wrestling with the customer hurts the tip?

I would have some sympathy for the cabbie, except that the rates they try to charge to come to Hoboken are absolutely extortionate. I can fly from here to Florida for about $127 right now, if I do it on the off-hours. Or, I can pay fifty bucks to get a car to Soho, which is all of about three miles from here. Ferfuxsake, I can SEE the goddamn place, with clarity. If you can identify actual buildings by unaided visual acuity, the price should be less than $50 to get a cab from here to there. 👿
