Saturday, June 15

  • 12:43 a.m. Police responded to a report of a fight inside a theater at AMC Loews. Police said the fight was over by the time officers arrived -- the altercation apparently started because one person was being too loud and was told to quiet down by the other person.

The motorcyclist suffered injuries to his leg and shoulder and was taken to the hospital. The other driver was cited for making an improper left turn.
