A roundup of recent activity from the police blotter also includes a car crash with a post and stolen construction materials.

The man had been warned not to do this in the past. Officers spoke to the man, and he was inevitably banned from the library for 30 days. Looks like he'll have to take his pickup lines elsewhere.

You know you've had too much when ... you don't know you've had too much. That was seemingly the case for this 46-year-old Port woman out drinking at 7:37 p.m. Friday at Sundance Tavern, 551 N. Wisconsin St. Port Washington police were called to the tavern after the woman threw a shot glass at the bartender because she had been "cut off." The woman was cited for disorderly conduct.
