5:24 am: Officers responded to a fight on Harvard Street. The individuals involved were the same two parties involved in an earlier event. The parties were separated and questioned. It was explained to police that the first party was still upset about events that had occurred earlier and he left their apartment to smoke a cigarette. When he left he observed the second party and went to confront him. After officers arrived, the individual continued to yell despite being advised to remain calm and reduce his volume. This party was angry about the earlier assault summons. Due to his behavior and the reaction from motorists and residents in the area, this individual was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct. An additional charge of assault will be brought on the individual based on the other party’s story.
