BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU’RE SINGING — Officers on Feb. 5 responded to the parking lot of a business on East Main Street after receiving a report of a male yelling inappropriate comments at pedestrians who’re going in and out of the building. Officers made contact with the male suspect and were told that he was merely singing the lyrics to a “not so good” song he was playing loudly in his vehicle. The male stated that someone must have overheard his singing and assumed he was directing the words towards them. Officers advised “Karaoke boy” that if he was sitting in a heavily traveled, busy parking lot of a business, he could only play and sing along with Barney songs. The male stated he understood and would comply.
