HYANNIS – [HN NOTES] – It’s that time of year again when shirts come off and rocks start flying…
Shortly after midnight last evening, Barnstable Police squad cars were dispatched to Main Street in the West End for a report of a shirtless male throwing rocks at cars.
Upon arrival, HN observed a shirtless male lying on the ground near the roadway. He was not throwing rocks when I arrived on scene… and if he had been throwing rocks, he didn’t have very good aim because there were no reports of damaged vehicles in the vicinity, according to radio transmissions.
Anyways, the male somehow managed to stand back up and rally enough spirit and determination to take off running west down the middle of Main Street, in traffic. He was a man on a drunken mission.
And as you’ll see in the following HN Video, a patrolwoman observed the male trotting in the roadway in front of the Rockland Trust at 765 Main Street. She was joined by other officers when she ultimately stopped and spoke with the alleged rock thrower in a nearby liquor store parking lot.
The male denied throwing rocks and there was no hard evidence that he actually had. But officers were actually more concerned with the ‘running down the middle of the road while obviously intoxicated’ issue, subsequently taking him into protective custody for the remainder of the evening, for his own good…
