MAMARONECK, N.Y. – Three men were issued summonses Saturday charging them with possession of open containers of alcohol, a violation, in Mamaroneck.

The three men were a 20-year-old from Mamaroneck, a 21-year-old from Mamaroneck and a 21-year-old from the Bronx; the police did not release their names because names are not released for violations, police said.

The officers were on a routine patrol when they saw the three men walking with open containers at 9:33 p.m. on Center Avenue, police said

They were issued a summons and were released without bail. They are due in court Tuesday.

There is so much poor reporting being done in the Hyperlocals on Police activity, this report may be accurate but the writing is very poor and leads one to believe there is something wrong with the report.

1. "Three men were charged with summonses for possession of open containers and issued summonses...", they are not charged with summonses, they are issued summonses for a violation.
2. They "were without bail", what does this mean? I think you were either trying to say they were released on bail or were released on an appearance ticket without bail being posted.
3. If the report is accurate that a 20 year old was found with an open container, this would imply that the police are not doing their job to arrest/cite for underage drinking. That would be a story unto itself.

I don't know if this is an attempt to get rush out a "Scoop" or poor writing, but police incidents should be taken seriously and fact checked before publication.
