Greenfield police did respond to dozens of calls, but most of them were minor in nature.
Among the more severe was an incident involving a motorcycle rider who was arrested for drunken driving after he parked his motorcycle near the off-ramp at 84th Street at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 29.
There was also an intoxicated man who displayed a knife and was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon near the Layton/60th Street intersection Aug. 31.
In addition, the license for Lumpylicious BBQ to sell food on the House of Harley grounds was denied Aug. 29, per the Health Department’s request because the business is closed, according to police.
Three days later, the same vendor was advised he had to shut down after police say he threatened an on-site food service manager. Officers stood by while he removed his business from the grounds.
