Half-Dozen Arrested on St. Patrick’s Day in Lakewood
The following arrest information was supplied by the Lakewood Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
St. Patrick’s Day is known as big day for drinking alcohol.
That also signals non-stop action for Lakewood police officers.
“It’s a busy night for complaints of noise disturbances, revelers and partiers,” said chief Timothy Malley. “Overall it was better than it could be.”
There were about a half-dozen arrests, he said.
Malley said that the holiday fell on a Sunday, and that could’ve contributed to a calmer St. Patrick’s Day.
- Police charged two men with disorderly conduct following an early morning fight in the 1600 block of Cohassett Avenue. A short time later, at around 1 a.m., a man was charged with disorderly conduct following another fight in the 1200 block of Idlewood Avenue.
- There were several reports of “disturbances” according to police reports — many of them noise complaints.
- A “highly intoxicated” woman fell and hit her head at a bar the 17000 block of Detroit Avenue at around 3:30 p.m. She was taken to Lakewood Hospital.
- Another fight was reported a bar in the 17600 block of Detroit Avenue at around 4:45 p.m. A man was charged with disorderly conduct.
- A man who was kicked out of a bar in the 16000 block of Detroit Avenue returned and kicked the door to the bar at around 5 p.m. But he was gone by the time officers showed up a few minutes later.
- Malley also said there were a “couple” charges of drunken driving issued on the holiday.
