The Tamarac District of the Broward Sheriff’s Office offered an evening of fun at this year’s 30th Annual National Night Out. Unfortunately, the evening was cut short due to the rain.

No, it wasn’t coming from tCity Commissioner Patte Atkins-Grad, who hurled a water bottle at a resident she disliked and yelled at his family, according to the police report. Despite, the commissioner’s bad behavior, the evening was a chance for residents not to follow in her footsteps, and to have have an enjoyable time while meeting the men and women who protect us.
