- All day: Festival of parking idiocy
As usual when we have a giant city festival – it’s not complete without the parking nonsense. All day, Hoboken Police had to deal with all sorts of nonsense, and ticketed & towed (ka ching) dozens of vehicles. Of course, that doesn’t stop people from parking on the sidewalk anyway, like Hoboken411 reader John noticed…
- 4:30pm: “Man Down”
A “local” had a little too much fun at today’s Arts & Music Festival and fell ill directly in front of the stage near 64 Washington Street. Hoboken EMS treated and took to HUMC.
- 12:00pm: Hoboken Moms, Bitches, Kids, Dogs, Fightin’ & Bitin’
Two Hoboken women got into an altercation near Maxwell Place uptown. Apparently it all started when one female’s dog “lunged” at another woman’s child. A verbal dispute took place, and the women turned catty. My take of the situation: The Hoboken mom didn’t have control of her child, and the kid probably approached the dog recklessly, startling the child, and making him cry. The Hoboken mom got offended then “blamed” the dog owner – and the dog owner probably said something along the lines of “you better teach kids that people walking dogs doesn’t equate to a “free petting zoo.”
