Tomahawk Police Report Relatively Quiet Fall Ride Weekend
Published on 09/18/2018 under News Despite the thousands of motorcycles and people in Tomahawk for the Fall Ride, police say the event went relatively smoothly in the city with just a few minor incidents. We spoke with Tomahawk Police Chief Al Elvins Monday morning. He called the 2018 Fall Ride a "good event, with a good crowd." He says there were two minor accidents within the city, but it was an otherwise quiet weekend despite the large number of bikes. As they do each year to accommodate the influx of people, the agency brings in officers from outside departments to maintain a police presence throughout town during the weekend, particularly the Thunder Parade and Street Dance. They even get into the spirit with the black and orange colors synonymous with Harley riders. The weekend police report was lengthier that a typical weekend, but a majority of the police-contact listed was for an increase in traffic violations. As we told you Monday, there were two, more serious accidents that occurred on Lincoln County roadways over Fall Ride, including one just outside the city limits. Eight people were injured in those two crashes. ____ Weekend Police Report On Friday evening, prior to the Thunder Parade, officers responded to a crash at 3rd and Main. A Madison man was doing a wheelie and struck another bike. As a result, the 35 year old was cited for disorderly conduct with a motor vehicle. Following a traffic incident Friday evening in a car, a 23 year old Tomahawk man was cited for disorderly conduct with a motor vehicle and operating without insurance. On Friday evening, officers were called to a dispute on Leather Avenue. The reporting party said the incident started with a man unplugging her RV and making threats. Officers initially warned the 51 year old regarding his behavior, and left without further incident. Officers were called back to the location later in the evening. As a result, the man was brought in for disorderly conduct and threats to law enforcement. Officers are investigating a break-in reported at a 2nd Street garage. The owner of the property reported that items stored in the garage had gone missing. Officers are following up. A property owner on 4th Street reported entering a storage garage and locating unfamiliar items. Officers are following up on whether those items were stolen items that were placed there by another party.

That's been earmarked for 30 instructors in math, science, communication and social science; and 42 in technical certification areas.
