PD Report: Kids Skip School and Hit Up Library

A roundup of the latest activity from the police blotter also includes a sleeping drunk, a backup accident and a loud argument.

This seems like an unusual choice of getaways when skipping school, but at least it had the potential to be just as productive as the classroom.

A 15-year-old Port boy and a 17-year-old Fredonia girl were noticed walking along the east side of the auditorium at 10 a.m. Sept. 18 during school hours, according to Port Washington police reports.

Turns out, the two had skipped school to visit the library, and were attempting to sneak back in. They were both issued a citation for truancy.

Also, a pack of cigarettes was found in the girl's backpack, and she was issued a citation for underage tobacco.

Sounds like an expensive library trip.

More from the reports:

  • Whoopsies: Police were called to a home in the 400 block of West Michigan Street because of loud argument between two 48-year-old Port women. The window was accidently left open, so the argument had traveled outside. The women said they would keep it down.
  • Have a nice (drunk) nap? Hopefully he wasn't in the middle of an awesome dream when police got a call about a man possibly unconscious at 1:16 a.m. Saturday. The 21-year-old Port man was in the area of South High Street and West Lincoln Avenue, and told police he had stopped to rest and fell asleep. Police realized he was intoxicated, and took him to a relative's home for the night.
  • Back it up: A 48-year-old Fredonia woman and a 37-year-old Minnesota man must have had trouble with their rearview mirrors simultaneously when they backed up into each other while leaving the parking lot behind Schooner Pub at 11:49 a.m. Saturday. Both vehicles had minor damage.
