Drug possession, simple assault, disorderly conduct and obstruction were among the most common charges among 126 filed recently by Point Beach police.
From Aug. 1 through Aug. 8, there were 41 criminal arrests, with 34 of them being adult arrests during the weekend on Aug. 6 and 7, four adults arrested during the weekdays and three juveniles arrested during the seven-day period, according to a statistical spreadsheet prepared by the Point Beach police department.
The weekly total of 41 is nearly four times higher than the total of 11 for the same week last year and 11 for 2009. There were 26 arrests in 2008 and 20 in 2007 during the same week.
During the same time period, there were eight adults cited with municipal ordinance violations during the weekdays and 77 during the weekend of Aug. 6 and 7, for a total of 85 for the week.
Of those, there were 20 violations of "urinating in public," the most common type of violation for the week and one that has been a big complaint from residents ever since Memorial Day weekend.
There were 15 "drinking in public" violations and 14 "misbehaving."
The total of 85 for the week is greater than 49 for the same week last year, but less than the 88 citations issued during the same week in 2009.
During last week, there were 45 first aid calls and 12 car accidents.

In addition, state police tactical patrol units, nicknamed "tac pacs," worked in Point Beach on July 22, 23 and 29.
They made 55 motor vehicle stops, charged one driver with drunken driving and another driver had outstanding warrants, said State Police Acting Lieutenant Stephen Jones of the public information office.
Point Beach Detective Patrick Petruzziello said "tac pacs" have been working in Point Beach for many years, often helping out during the summers. He said state police do not give Point Beach police arrest reports with names, charges and other details, but provide that information to municipal court.
Petruzziello said he did not include the Corbally case in last week's police blotter because it would be up to state police to release that information since it is their case.
Michelle Sargent, municipal court clerk, said Corbally has pleaded not guilty and hired attorney William Cunningham.
Corbally's case will be moved to another jurisdiction because her father, Michael Corbally, is a Point Beach borough councilman. Municipal Court Judge James Liguori is appointed to a three-year term by the mayor with council consent, so a transfer to another jurisdiction is necessary to avoid any appearance of impropriety, Sargent said.
Of the 55 motor vehicle stops, state police wrote 11 tickets on the three days, including eight tickets on July 22, 1 on July 23 and two on July 29, Sargent said.
Point Pleasant Beach police said: "The media and public are reminded that criminal charges are merely accusations and these defendants are presumed innocent until and unless they are proven guilty.
"Residents are reminded that they can call the Police Department Tips Hotline, to report any suspicious activity, at 732-892-0500 ext. 199. Residents are also reminded that they may remain anonymous."
