Joy Riding

Call 503-823-3333 the Portland Police Non-Emergency # to report joy riding. Generally once or twice a year a vehicle will drive up onto the soccer field at Albert Kelly Park and do a spin or two, but this year sometime during the night of Friday Nov 18th, 2005 one or more vehicles did spionouts on the soccer field.

At the west end of the field one tire track goes right next to one of the goal posts, implying that one vehichle may have sideswiped the goal post there. A number of people have reported the incident to the police who have done some initial investigation at the park. This used to be a regular occurence at Hamilton Park too until the steel hand/guardrails were installed.
