On Friday, June 22, 2012, at about 3:15am, a Cohasset Police Officer on patrol encountered an intoxicated female in the parking lot at Government Island. This female, who is 49 years of age and from the Town of Hyannis was reporting that her boyfriend, who is a recovering alcoholic and has diabetes, got extremely intoxicated tonight and ran off into the woods behind the Lightkeepers House.
Officers on foot attempted to locate the male to no avail. Cohasset Police K-9 Officer Patrick Reardon and his dog Erik were called to the scene. Officer Reardon and Erik began to track the male through heavy brush along Border Street. Within ten minutes the male was located deep in the woods.
The male, who is 50 years of age and also from the Hyannis, was heavily intoxicated and in distress. He was escorted out of the woods and treated by Cohasset Fire Department Paramedics. He and his girlfriend were subsequently placed into protective custody by officers.
