Loud neighbor report
At 12:58 p.m., a Port Edwards woman called to report that her upstairs neighbor was pounding on the floors again. Deputies arrived and explained it is not a violation of rules, but also explained to both residents that they need to be more respectful and neighborly towards each other in the future.
Up a creek
At 4:09 p.m., a man called to report that there was a paddleboat floating in Lake Dexter. It did not appear that anyone was in the boat. Deputies arrived and attempted to contact neighboring houses to find the owner of the paddleboat.
Yelling for help
At 11 p.m., a deputy spoke with a town of Lincoln woman who stated she left an area where a male was in a field yelling for help. She also stated a group showed up with bats and knives.

At 10:06 a.m., a 22-year-old Saratoga woman called to report her horse was taken and not returned.

Lightning rods check up
At 11:16 a.m., a township of Dexter woman reported that a man had stopped by her residence earlier that morning stating he wanted to check out the lightning rods on the house, as they were under warranty.
