11:20pm: Black Pontiac Firebird (NY Plates) wanted for hit & run at 1st & Willow. Now heading uptown on Washington St. from First. This car struck “several parked cars” according to HPD and has a NY Islanders sticker on bumper. This guy is toast if they catch him…
11:14pm: Drunk male apparently scaling a fire escape near 3rd & Court Streets – “banging on a window” according to HPD. Maybe it’s Hoboken Spiderman?

10:47pm: Police make arrest and tow vehicle near 44 Newark Street. Not sure if they did a field sobriety test, or he had an outstanding warrant. Either way, the guy was cuffed and carted to imprisonment.
10:43pm: Police en route to 227 Washington St. for yet another rumbling house party. The “gift” that keeps on giving today…
Hoboken411 Note: As of 10:35pm, incidents noticeably slowing down, however – as I type this EMS is en route to 12th & Willow for a “drunk man down.”
10:07pm: “Brush fire near 12th & Monroe.” HFD responding. I knew there would be some kind of fire before midnight!

9:32pm: Unruly group reported near 3rd & Court. HPD about to set them in line. What can you say about packs of obnoxious drunks at this point?

9:25pm: Disorderly party reported at 303 Jefferson St. HPD heading over. Even I’m getting tired of these!
9:22pm: Disorderly party near 9th & Willow. HPD dispatched to quell the situation. Is anyone tired yet? Jeez!

9:07pm: Car crash with injuries at 13th & Willow. Offending car fled scene. HPD and EMS en route. How is that possible with a traffic signal there?

8:36pm: Fight reported near 6th & Jefferson Hoboken PD on the way. Scuffle over the last warm can of Coors Light?
8:28pm: Hispanic male wearing grey hoodie apparently trying to break into Our Lady of Grace church at 4th & Willow. God have mercy!
Update: “Orlando” was arrested. Apparently “a local” trouble-maker.
8:24pm: Reports of a “highly intoxicated male” in front of 7 Eleven on Washington Street. EMS on the way. Maybe it was just a Slurpee head freeze?
8:22pm: 7th & Park – reports of a “man down.” EMS on the way. Unless he was assaulted – why rush to help?
8:16pm: Sidewalk disturbance near Pita Grill (324 Washington St.) A violent discussion about “where did we go wrong in life?”
8:06pm: Drunk refuses to leave Wicked Wolf at 120 Sinatra Drive. Probably can’t get enough of their sub-standard bar food!

7:09pm: Cops responding to yet another unruly house party at 101 Willow Ave. downtown. Broken record, for real.
7:03pm: Woman urinating on CD’s inside Tunes store downtown. We know you prefer mp3’s – but seriously? Why the hate?
7:02pm: Fist fight reported at Spa Diner downtown. Disco fries do that to you when you realize you get NO disco with the fries.
6:57pm: Disorderly drunk arrested at 5th & Bloomfield. Getting drunk is fine, but why take it too far?
6:4pm: Disorderly drunk arrested near 9th & Washington. Apparently damaging cars by walking all over them. Maybe we can just all walk on HIM as punishment?
6:35pm: More bumpin’ house parties angering neighbors near 6th & Jefferson. Cops en route to baby sit. Maybe the neighbors are mad they didn’t get invited?
6:30pm: Fireworks reportedly being launched off rooftops near 7th & Bloomfield. Cops couldn’t identify exact offender. Flag this area for potential fire.

5:55pm: Fight reported at Johnny Rockets near 2nd & Washington Streets. Doubt it’s because he didn’t get pickles on his burger..

5:45pm: Police dispatched to 816 Bloomfield St. for – guess! Tomorrow morning will be nice & quiet!

5:05pm: Debris landing on the sidewalk (cans, cups) in front of 405 Washington St. HPD already issued for disorderly party – they will issue again, and break up the party. Is it really worth the financial cost and humiliation?
5:00pm: Disorderly party at 6th & Garden St. “urinating in the yard.” Man, guys have such weak-ass bladders.

4:30pm: Hoboken Fire Department responding to 106 Clinton St. for alarms activated. Told to “use caution.” What are the going odds for a major fire breaking out before midnight? 10 to 1?
4:20pm: Reports of a disorderly parties at 330 and 1217 Washington St. At what point does a neighbor call PD? Do they have decibel meters?
4:10pm: Man allegedly beating on a woman outside 5 Church Towers. Who needs to watch TV when you have LIVE reality on every block?
3:50pm: Don’t feel left out! You can still get “green” stuff over at United Decorating (421 Washington St.)

2:50pm: Hoboken EMS dispatched to 1st & River Streets to care for a severely intoxicated person. Shouldn’t they require pre-payment for stuff like this?
2:40pm: Reports that a house party at 75 Monroe St. is charging guests an entry fee. That may be against the law apparently, as police are en route. Guess a lot of freeloaders trying to swig beer at no charge?
2:30pm Mid-day photo update: Washington Street downtown is truly a “sea of green” as you can see in the photos below. Uptown much less active.
2:20pm: “Woman down” in front of Arthur’s Steakhouse at 3rd & Washington. You think a beverage had anything to do with it?
Update: She was under-age.
2:10pm: Unruly house party at 405 Washington St. All fun and games until someone gets hurt.
2:05pm: Hoboken Fire Department responded to 1210 Hudson St. for alarms activated. Malicious false. Peeps have problems.
2:00pm: Cars collide at 11th & Park. No injuries reported. Can you explain how these car crashes happen?
1:50pm: Hoboken Fire Department responded to 809 Castle Point Terrace (a Stevens frat house) for alarms activated. Someone shot off the fire extinguisher which offset alarms. Drunk hijinks blocks several roads and probably cost a couple hundred bucks in burnt fuel. You wonder why taxes are so high?
1:40pm: Hoboken Police and Fire responding to 528 Jefferson for “overcrowding.” Will issue “disorderly party” summonses. But at least you’ll be a legend for 3 seconds on Facebook.
1:35pm: “Piss party” at 91 Monroe Street broken up. Over 120
people drunks dispersed into the neighborhood. Sort of like turning on the lights in a roach infested ghetto hotel.
1:18pm: Hoboken character update: Man pissing out window at 91 Monroe Street. In a home with modern plumbing nonetheless. Stay classy, dude!
1:15pm: HPD issues more “open container” summonses near 10th & Park. More money for city hall pay raises! Seriously – do you need to drink that badly that you’d be willing to pay two grand for the pleasure?
1:10pm: Disorderly drunk arrested across the street from Nag’s Head bar on 1st St. “Drunks arrested per hour” set to progressively increase as the day progresses. Hydrate, people!
1:00pm: HPD responding to a “loud house party” near 6th & Garden. Who woulda thunk the book club / meditation meetup was on the same day as Leprecon? DAMNIT!
11:50am: Hoboken OEM was pursuing a Jersey City cab that didn’t stop for them, and almost hit them near 6th & Park. HPD called off the pursuit, will issue summons via mail. What they hell are they meddling with people traveling freely around town for?
11:30am: HPD issues two tickets for open containers downtown near the PATH station. Ka-Ching!
11:00am: Someone called HPD to report a group of revelers carrying (and drinking) cases of beer near Newark & Grand Streets. Hoboken cops couldn’t find them before they got where they were going. I think the $2,000 open container fine is utterly ridiculous, but why give the city free money? Don’t be an idiot!
10:40am: Man “passed out” at Rome Pizza downtown. PD and EMS en route. First of many today. Why does anyone have to respond to these calls. The guy voluntarily did it to himself!
9:25am: Hoboken Police announce: “The first wave of drinkers arrived at train station.” To celebrate the memory of a parade that isn’t happening anywhere in town…
9:15am: “Criminal Mischief” at 415 Bloomfield Street. Likely the first of many today. Shit’s just gonna get busted up all over Hoboken…
8:42am: Cops track down the maroon hoodie sexual fondler from the 8:15am call, and apprehend him after a foot pursuit. This actor also attempted to steal the woman’s purse in addition to the inappropriate touching. Way to go, Hoboken PD. Who said you guys were out of shape?
8:30am: Cops dispatched to noise complaint at 659 1st Street. You think it’s drunks? Nope. Toddlers playing with toys. They just don’t build condos good at all anymore.
8:15am: Woman sexually “fondled” near 1017 Jefferson Street. Actor is a black male wearing a maroon hoodie. Last seen running southbound.
7:16am: Great start to the morning – Empire Coffee at 4th & Bloomfield had their front door kicked in already.
