WRONG ‘WAY
6:09 p.m. — 1400 block of Pattison Avenue
Dispute: A woman said she had documented more than 60 instances of her neighbors trespassing on her property. The woman said one of the neighbors constantly parks their van in her driveway. The woman said she notified her landlord of the issue, who told her to make an official report with the authorities. An officer spoke to the neighbor, who said using the woman’s driveway had never been a problem in the past, so he didn’t understand why it was an issue now. The neighbor said he would speak to the rest of the family about not using the woman’s driveway.

SETTLE UP

Dispute: An employee at a restaurant said two men had been at the bar for hours and refused to pay their $90 tab. The employee wanted to press charges if the men did not pay.

THE WRONG TRACK

HIT ‘EM HIGH
