At 1:50 a.m., in the 1000 block of Tomahawk Trail, deputies responded to a report of numerous subjects walking around vehicles in the neighborhood; they were unable to locate.
At 9 a.m., at Pinecone and Flume Rd., deputies responded to a 2-vehicle non-injury accident with fluids leaking and airbag deployment that blocked both lanes of travel. Both vehicles had to be towed.
At 8:13 a.m., on SR 28 in the area of the Crystal Bay Post Office, there was a 2-vehicle non-injury accident with both vehicles blocking traffic. Deputies assisted while NHP handled the investigation.
At 4 p.m., in the 800 block of Oriole Way, a rock was thrown through a front window of a residence while the owner was home. No injuries and no known suspects.
At 4:47 p.m., in the parking lot of 930 Tahoe Blvd., while in the car, a teenage male hit his mother. She drove directly to the Substation and the son was subsequently arrested and transported to Jan Evans Juvenile Detention.
At 5:22 p.m., in the 200 block of Glen Way, a child fell from a loft in a vacation rental home, striking a table which broke the fall. Child was transported with minor injuries.

At 8:29 a.m., on SR 28 near Sand Harbor, traffic was backed up for some time while some very large boulders were removed from the roadway by a bulldozer. Apparently, the recent large amounts of rain caused enough erosion for the boulders to break free. Road was reopened by 10:40 am.
At 10:57 p.m., at a business near the state line, deputies responded to a trespassing call with an uncooperative subject refusing to leave the premises. Ultimately, he decided he’d rather go home with a sober driver and a citation than go to jail.
