Everything has an equal and opposite reaction — it's a basic rule of physics. What goes up, must come down.
But this Port Washington resident learned that it can work in other ways, too. What goes down, must come up. And what makes a mess, must be cleaned up.
A person in the 1500 block of North Wisconsin Street called police at 4 p.m. April 9 after seeing someone throw a " bag that someone had gotten sick in" out of the car window.
Police contacted the registered owner of the vehicle, who then came to clean up the litter.
Looks like her "sick" relative now owes her and equal and opposite favor.
More from the reports:
- Wanted — mother duck: Police responded to a call at 6:02 p.m. Thursday about a woman who had been seen taking two baby ducklings from the 400 block of East Jackson Street. Police found the 41-year-old Saukville woman with the two ducks, who then explained to police that she was attempting to find a monther duck to "adopt" her two baby ducklings — but was unsuccesful.
