Out of your lane: At 10:18 p.m. at 164th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 90th Street, a witness called police after they saw a driver drifting out of his lane while driving.

Dancing in the street: At 5:28 p.m. at 161st Avenue Northeast and Northeast 85th Street, a 21-year-old man was dancing in the middle of the street. He was causing a traffic issue. When officers found him, they requested he move his dance party elsewhere. The man allegedly became surly and argumentative.
