The caretaker of the Lions Camp at 181 Fays Ave. reported at 8:32 a.m. that sometime on Saturday someone spray-painted the rear of one of the buildings. Police came to the scene and photographed the graffiti.
Police responded to Tremont Street in the area of Churchill Street at 1:42 p.m. for a report of a man who fell out of and was subsequently run over by his own pickup truck. When police arrived, they found the driver, Brian Reynolds, 40, of Lynn, lying face-down in the middle of the street. He told police he was heading inbound on Tremont Street when the brakes to his 1987 Chevrolet pickup failed as it headed down a decline in the road just before the entrance to Mack Park. The driver opened his door and put his left foot out to try to stop the truck. As he did so, he attempted to run the truck off to the right shoulder of the road up an embankment, which caused him to fall out. The truck drove over his left leg and proceeded down Tremont Street, crossed the roadway and struck a fire hydrant. Reynolds was taken to Salem Hospital, but police said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. Police later cited Reynolds for having defective brakes, and the DPW was called to fix the hydrant.
Elizabeth Youts, 45, of 319 Essex St., Beverly, was arrested at 10:05 p.m. and charged with disturbing the peace after a report of an argument
