HHS football field

Hebron High School officials alerted the Carrollton Police Department Monday regarding damage to the football field, allegedly caused by fireworks.

The Carrollton Police Department reported a suspect lit fireworks in the middle of the Hebron High School football field, damaging parts of the field.
Carrollton Police Media Specialist Jolene DeVito said police are not aware of how bad the damage is but noted the part of the field that is burnt will need to be replaced.

Devito stated in an email Tuesday that school staff reported the damage Monday, and Hebron High School Principal Scot Finch alerted the Carrollton PD around 9 a.m.
According to the Carrollton PD, the incident occurred between Saturday and Monday.
DeVito also reported 62 fireworks complaints were handed out over the Independence Day weekend.
DeVito said there were no accidents related to any fireworks complaints. She said some of the calls resulted in officers unable to find the residents, or they had stopped before officers arrived.
She added no arrests or citations were handed out over the weekend.
“[Carrollton Police] officers typically just issue warnings and confiscate fireworks when necessary,” DeVito said.
DeVito added the city did increase its force to deal with the large crowds at the city fireworks event Saturday evening.
Outside from the fireworks complaints, she said the holiday weekend did not bring any additional incidents or severe activity.
“Everybody seemed to behave,” she said.
