A Port Washington man who called police as he attempted to find out where to get permission to park during the evening of Feb. 17 instead found himself in jail.

    According to Port Washington police, the 21-year-old man, who was in the 100 block of East Prospect Court, dialed 911 instead of 411 when making his call, then hung up.

    When officers checked, they discovered there was a body-only warrant issued for the man, who had not returned his jury duty questionnaire, police said. They took the man into custody and transported him to the Ozaukee County Jail.

    A 21-year-old Saukville man was arrested for substantial battery and obstructing an officer after he punched a 23-year-old Port Washington man about 12:30 a.m. Feb. 16.

    According to police, the men, who have a history of bad blood between them, had gotten into a fight at Schooner Pub and the Saukville man struck the Port man in the face.

    Someone flagged down a police officer to report the incident, and the Saukville man left the scene, police said.  

    Police were called to Thomas Jefferson Middle School about 9 a.m. Feb. 14 for an 11-year-old boy who had been screaming in the main school office.

    The boy had previously been suspended for behavioral problems, and he and his parents were meeting with school officials when the sixth-grader became belligerent, police said. The youth was warned that if his behavior continued he would be referred to juvenile court, police said.

    City plow operators reported vehicles on Johnson and Powers street were parked on the roadway, making plowing difficult about 8:15 a.m. Feb. 22.

    One of the vehicles had been plowed in by trucks attempting to clean the streets and the other had been ticketed earlier that morning for overnight winter parking restrictions, police said.

    Two men were warned for misusing the 911 emergency line during the past several weeks.badge

    A 44-year-old Port Washington man called 911 on Feb. 20 to report his concerns about a cat on the porch of his home in the 1000 block of Westport Drive when the temperatures were frigid. The feline was gone when officers arrived, and the man apologized when officers discussed the use of the emergency line with him, police said.
