January 18, 1999
Shortly after that incident, officers, while checking Cherry Valley Elementary School, saw a sport utility vehicle attempting to drive up the grassy bank from the rear of the school to the upper playground. When confronted by the officers, the driver told them that, after leaving a New Year's Eve party, he decided to show off to his girlfriend by trying to drive up the rather steep and slippery bank.
Both sets of parents were called, as was the maintenance supervisor for the school. After a suitable agreement was reached, both the driver and passenger were released to their parents. There was no alcohol involved.
