Don't Drink and Pedal
It was dusk, 7:08 p.m. on July 8 to be exact, when a person called the Wayland Police Department to report a possibly intoxicated man near Lavin's Liquors ... riding a bicycle.

Tire-d of Her Parents Leaving
Sudbury police went to an Old County Road Home on July 7, after a report of a domestic problem. Police found a girl lying down behind her parents' car, preventing them from leaving. The parents told officers their daughter didn't want them to leave, and she was refusing to move.
Bad Music Choice
Woburn police responded to Fowle Street for a loud music complaint on July 9 at 8:33 p.m. According to police, officers have responded to the same house several times for similar complaints. Police spoke to a person at the home, who admitted that no one was listening to the loud music being played in the backyard. Police asked the man to shut it off, but the man only lowered it. Police returned to the home and asked that the music be shut off completely, and it was at that time. According to police, the music was turned on at 7:30 a.m. and was also on all day yesterday. There is a complaint pending in court regarding the harassment, reported police.
At 6:21 p.m., police returned to Fowle Street for a report of a loud radio playing in the backyard, disturbing neighbors. Police reported hearing the music as the officer turned onto Fowle Street. Police asked the homeowner to turn down the radio, and he did.
