At 12:55 a.m., officers responded and found a blue truck in a parking lot, with its front end partially hanging over a two-foot wall. Upon speaking with the driver, police administered a roadside breath test, which registered a fail reading, indicating a blood-alcohol content exceeding .08.

A 19-year-old man received a 30-day vehicle impound and 90-day driving prohibition for impaired driving under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Knife seized during disturbance report

A woman was lodged in cells to sober up after allegedly brandishing a knife at a police officer.

 On Aug. 30 at about 8:15 a.m., police responded to a report of people using drugs on Second Avenue downtown. One of those involved was reported to have been naked from the waist down.

Officers attended and came across a man and woman. The woman was in a sleeping bag with a knife on top. When police tried to remove the knife for safety, she allegedly brandished it and yelled at them, then placed it in the sleeping bag.

The man interjected and was briefly detained. The woman continued to yell and was arrested, then taken into custody. The knife was seized.
