Hanover Police was called to the scene of a landlord-tenant dispute when a former tenant showed up at a Lebanon Street rental property and refused to leave upon the landlord's request. During the dispute, the tenant complained of intolerable conditions, which allegedly included the landlord, who was "drunk half the time." The police ended the dispute and no further action was taken.

Hanover Police received two separate calls complaining of gunshots near the Kingsford Road just before midnight. While the suspect was neither captured nor identified, the police are blaming the sounds on a mysterious deer hunter who may have been in the Kingsford Road area, off of East Wheelock Street, late that night.

A patrolling officer spotted a suspicious Dartmouth freshman among a group of students walking on Webster Avenue. Upon spotting the police officer, the student, who was carrying a blue container in her hand, moved her hand to the side where it could not be seen by the officer. The officer left his patrol car and identified the container as a 12 oz. can of Keystone Light beer. At this point, the female student ran away and tried to hide behind some shrubs, but was summarily found. The officer determined that one of the other students in the group had been drinking as well. Both Dartmouth female freshmen were arrested and brought to the Hanover Police station.

The Department of Safety and Security called Hanover Police for assistance when a Dartmouth freshman, en route to Dick's House, jumped out of a Safety and Security vehicle.

Two Hanover Police officers chased the highly intoxicated student down the street and wrestled her into submission.

Once stopped, the student required assistance with her balance, although she continued to pull away from the officer who was helping her.

The student then refused to identify herself and requested a field sobriety test. After failing the sobriety test, she refused a Breathalyzer test.

Once at the station, the student continued to refuse to identify herself. Since she was carrying no form of identification, the police officer present examined the student's cell phone call log in order to identify her.

He discovered the number for the student's parents, contacted her mother and asked her to help identify her daughter. Due to the extent of her intoxication, the Fire Department was called to perform an evaluation, and the female student was sent to Dick's House.

Oct. 10, 2:51 a.m.

A Dartmouth sophomore was put to bed by her roommates after vomiting several times in Fayerweather Hall. After she continued to vomit in her sleep, her roommates called Safety and Security, which later requested assistance from the Hanover Police.

The female was barely conscious and not responsive. When Hanover Police arrived on the scene, the student had vomit on the corner of her mouth and was stationed next to a vomit-filled trash can. When questioned, the student "just nodded and moaned." The student was rushed to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

Oct. 10, 9:52 a.m.

A Hanover Police officer on patrol spotted a male subject who appeared to be passed out in the driver's seat of his automobile. The officer awoke the man from Lebanon, who explained that he was simply taking a nap and waiting for The Dirt Cowboy to open. The officer closed the investigation.
