Hoboken crime, fire & incident update: June 26, 2011
Various Hoboken incidents – Sunday, June 26, 2011. This post may be updated as necessary.
- 11:35pm: Pizza Parlor Knife Incident
Over at Lorenzo’s Pizza – reports that a white male pulled a knife on a worker inside the restaurant. He’s now hanging out. Police will have to talk some sense into this guy too. What’s the deal these days?
- 11:20pm: Kids smashing cars – FBI spots them!
The FBI contacted Hoboken P.D. to say that they spotted three kids smashing car windows near 9th & Madison. Whoa! The FBI is still here in town!
- 11:15pm: Suicidal Fella
Some guy, living on Washington St. near 9th Street – is threatening to kill himself. HPD is en route with multiple units to check this fella out. I hope it wasn’t because he didn’t have a clear view of the fireworks earlier. Nope. Turned out he was just drunk and dramatic. Hoboken EMS took him to the HUMC.
- 10:50pm: After all these years, people still can’t tell what fireworks sound like
Happens every single time there are fireworks near Hoboken. Some nervous ninny calls 911 about the noise, concerned it’s something else. HPD told one woman tonight: “911 is for emergencies.”
- 9:25pm: Sunday Night Drunks
A bunch of guys slugging drinks at a rapid rate over at Texas Arizona downtown got cut off by the bartenders. Now they refuse to leave and are causing trouble. HPD en route to talk sense into them. Earth to drunks – liquors stores open until 11pm!
- 8:15pm: Cheeba Alert
A poor guy smoking Mary Jane on 3rd Street had a visit from HPD – from a “concerned neighbor” who smelled the illegal substance. C’mon, really? I don’t do it myself, but seriously – it smells like a good mellow time!
- 6:05pm: Pedestrian Struck
9th & Garden Street – reports of a pedestrian struck by auto. Rinse, repeat same mistakes.
