Various Hoboken incidents – Sunday, May 8, 2011. This post may be updated as necessary.

  • 6:55am (5/9/2011): Dumpster Fire
    HFD reported an apparent dumpster fire on Garden St. between 14th & 15th Street. God can only imagine what set that off!
  • 12:10am (5/9/2011): Suspicious activity
    Reports of “two suspicious males carrying bags across lot near 9th Street Light Rail. What is it with bags these days? Regardless – HPD going to check out whether theft or other nefarious activity is taking place…
  • 11:40pm: Terrorist fear is the new abandoned backpack
    A bag on a bench was left behind by someone over at Church Square Park, sparking someone’s concern enough to call HPD. I sure hope that “man with untucked shirt” doesn’t spark the same reaction! A lot of us would be in big trouble!
  • 10:45pm: You can’t fall up the stairs drunk
    Hoboken EMS was dispatched to 87 Jefferson Street – for a male passed out drunk. Guess the Mother’s Day happy hours were really great!
  • 10:40pm: Drunk roommate fracas
    HPD was dispatched to quell a dispute between two drunk roomies at 9th & Washington. So much for a lazy May Sunday!
  • 10:35pm: Drunk female causing issues
    An intoxicated woman was being treated by Hoboken EMS, acting combative and refusing treatment. Maybe this is what “water boarding” was invented for?

  • 7:50pm: Street Fight
    Reports of a street fight on River St. between 1st & 2nd. 100 bucks says neither party is high on cheeba.
  • 6:15pm: Cat fight & arrest
    In an apartment near 13th & Willow – one female assaulted her female roommate. Was arrested. Maybe finding roomies on Craigslist not such a great idea?
