Dispute: A lifeguard at the beach reported a woman was swearing at families, yelling sexually explicit things and causing a disturbance. The lifeguard said he asked her to stop, and she refused. When she began yelling profanities at him, he asked her to leave the beach, but she refused again. A police officer made contact with the woman, who was sitting at the pavilion, and she yelled at the officer. The officer asked the woman to stop screaming profanities, and she complied. The officer asked her to leave the beach for the day because of the complaints she generated, and she agreed.

The man suggested his former roommate might be responsible, though he could not provide any additional identifying information beyond the roommate’s name.

The neighbor agreed to move the car.
