Port Police Report: Residents Rev Up and Land Themselves Citations

A roundup of recent activity from the police reports also includes cars covered in syrup and kids throwing objects at cars.

Does something about summer time mean an increase of testosterone?

Two Port Washington males were both cited in June after letting their manhood shine — that is, revving their engines, and drawing attention.

The first citation happened at 12:05 a.m. Thursday after a 34-year-old Port man was revving his engine and accelerating rapidly in the 100 block of East Grand Avenue. Police responded and cited him for disorderly conduct.

At 11:18 p.m. Saturday, an early-bloomer landed himself a citation for curfew after police pulled over the 16-year-old Port man for revving his engine.

Boys will be boys.

More from the reports:

  • Kids will be kids: Port Washington police responded to a call of three subjects throwing objects at vehicles driving by in the area of Wisconsin and Monroe streets. They were warned for disorderly conduct.
  • Something sticky? In the old days, they used toilet paper; now, it's syrup and saran wrap. Police responded to a call from a Port resident in the 1300 block of Sunset Road at 7:58 a.m. Thursday who was reporting his car having been covered in the sugary syrup and wrapped with saran. A few days earlier, in the 700 block of North Wisconsin Street, a Port woman reported an unknown substance splattered all over her vehicle while parked next to her garage. Syrup?

Revving an engine is a crime? Accelerating rapidly is illegal? If they were charged with disorderly conduct then clearly a moving violation was not at issue. I understand it can be disturbing to hear late at night, but nonetheless, is it really illegal or just annoying?

"letting their manhood shine"? Really? And Ken, getting a citation is not a crime and the municipal citation is actually called "disorderly conduct with a motor vehicle". Those are the tickets the police issue for being annoying with a motor vehicle.

Shame the port police can't do anything about the stereos blaring from the cars at all hours of the day or night....Guess thats not a big money maker for them. Well except T.K,, I've seen him go after a horribly loud stereo.

Revving your engine ANYTHIME in a residential community should be a ticketed violation. . .babies are sleeping; third-shift workers are sleeping; people that happen to be ill may be sleeping. Guys like that don't think about anyone but themselves! Also, much of the blame lands on the parents and their lack of control of their children which has been an increasing problem over the past 15 - 20 yrs. Remember the phrase: "Parents, do you know where your children are?" The entertainment media is also responsible for putting the ideas in their minds. People, please re-evaluate your values.
