9:40 p.m. While on patrol an officer noticed a fire with people huddled around it between the Neck Run Cafe and the pavilion on Devereux Beach.

There was a speaker playing music at a reasonable level, which was plugged into an outlet at the Neck Run Cafe with a long extension cord. The officer spoke to the group, all of whom were very polite, cooperative and respectful, according to the officer’s report. At the officer’s instruction, one member of the group used water in a Home Depot bucket he had brought to douse the fire. The group was advised that fires on public property were prohibited and were asked to vacate the beach after they were certain the fire was out. The officer found no evidence of any other illicit activities, and the group got back into their cars and left the area without incident.

7:48 a.m. An officer was dispatched to the intersection of Tedesco Street and Brookhouse Drive to investigate the report of a motor vehicle accident, after an officer who was on a detail nearby had already responded. When the second officer approached the scene, he observed that the vehicles involved in the accident were a small commercial truck and a town-operated street sweeper. The people involved said they were not hurt. The truck driver told the officer he was heading inbound on Tedesco Street and was attempting to make a right turn onto Brookhouse Drive when he collided with the street sweeper. The driver told the officer that he had observed the sweeper on the side of the road as he approached from behind and believed that the sweeper was going to make a right turn onto Brookhouse Drive, too, and figured he could go around the sweeper and turn alongside it. But the sweeper continued straight as he turned right, leading to the collision. The operator of the street sweeper confirmed that sequence of events.

An officer escorted the man to Leo Road, and the repair person was not present, but they spoke with his father.
