When can we skate? Not yet. Though some can't seem to wait for the official decree.
This weekend, the now-famously cute puggle named Jack Bauer couldn't resist .
Before this, there were several incidents in the Tarrytown police blotters of human arrests and trouble with a price tag.
- On Jan. 25 at 4:01 p.m., a caller reported to police that unauthorized people were on the ice. Officers said they found three EF students who they arrested for trespassing. EF security came to headquarters to pick up the defendants who posted $100 cash bail each. They were released with a return court date.
- On Jan. 27 at 11:21 a.m., a caller reported several people on the ice of the Tarrytown Lakes. The sergeant again located EF students and took them to headquarters, placing them in holding cells. EF security was again notified, and defendants were released on $100 cash bail each with return court dates.
- On Jan. 29 at 5:22 p.m., a caller reported that children were skating on the pond off the jogging path on Neperan Road. Officers went but this time found nobody on the ice.
Fire Chief Eugene Gasparre says this is more than just a nuisance to authorities who keep coming out for this but a real danger to all when the ice can easily crack. "It is simple: you go in that cold water, you do not move," said Gasparre. "You drown quickly."
