Thankfully, and as the result of great work by the Bethlehem Police, the Musikfest crime reports have been light so far this year.
There have been a bunch of underage drinking citations, which is never good, but we haven’t seen any violent crime and that is a plus for everyone. I actually ran into @bethlehempolice on Tuesday evening and they said things were going smoothly. So, stay safe, peoples!
That being said, let’s check out some winners!!!!
29 y/o Joel Hernandez-Espejel of 535 Wyandotte Street, Bethlehem, PA arrested for Public Drunkenness after found sleeping in a beer tent at Plaza Tropical
53 y/o Thomas Davies of 163 W. Parker Street, Scranton, PA arrested for Possession of Marihuana after smoking a joint at Dukes of September concert at Steel Stacks
Sleeping in a beer tent because you drank a bit too much and it’s hot out? Ok. Not great, but still, nothing crazy.
Smoking a doobie at the Dukes of September concert? Meh. Not super surprising.
WHO THE HELL TRIES TO CLIMB THE STEEL STACKS? Not only am I not sure exactly where I’d start, but that thing is Tetanus Shot City. I have to imagine that this guy didn’t get very far before he was nabbed.
Also, I’m glad my brain, when intoxicated, doesn’t tell me, “GO CLIMB TALL THINGS!” Because, that’s … that’s just not smart.
It reminds me of the Agro Crag at the end of Guts on Nickelodeon. I always watched that show and was like, “Whatever, stupid kid, I could dunk 50 basketballs if I was attached to a jumpy rope system.”
Don’t forget, Musikfest has started and we have tons of prizes to give away in the Musikfest Photo Scavenger Hunt. All you need is a camera.
