CVS incident yesterday
I heard a brief incident over the Live Hoboken Police and Fire scanner yesterday, but didn’t make much of it….
“Reports of a street fight near CVS at Newark and Washington… man with cane… involving a City Crosstown Bus… Driver claims the man hit the bus with his cane…” etc…
Then I heard that the man driving the Hoboken Crosstown bus was “10-25’d” (i.e., arrested) and they had to call a “supervisor” because the bus was filled with passengers… but I had to leave the house… whoops!
Later last night, I get this email from a Hoboken411 reader:
“I don’t know what happened, but did anyone write in about the incident by newark street CVS? A Mile Square tow truck was there, and there seemed to be a dispute. A guy grabbed a shovel from the truck, and someone held him back. I heard screaming coming from the corner of Washington and Newark, by the realtor across from CVS. A cop was on Newark and Hudson, and a woman let them know it was going on. Never figured out what happened though. This was around 5:10pm”
My take on the situation (from what I surmise): Somehow there was a “pedestrian/vehicle” incident involving the city run (and tax-payer funded) Crosstown bus… A man hit the bus, and the driver got out and confronted the angry pedestrian… chaos ensued and this lovely city worker gets locked up.
If this is actually the case (like I have time to get “police reports” these days)… wouldn’t you think that’s nuts? Would you care if a pedestrian hit a vehicle you were paid to drive? And it wasn’t yours?
Anywho.. it’s late (Wednesday night as I write this) and I could be very well wrong.. those are the breaks, right?
Fun making the graphic though!
