GENERAL REFERENCES
Noise — See Ch. 248.
Streets and sidewalks — See Ch. 321.
No person shall enter into, congregate, loiter, prowl, wander, stroll, stand or play in or about any municipal building, park building or shelter, or other public building, or in or about any playground area adjacent thereto, or upon any public street, sidewalk, highway, road, alley, vacant lot, place of amusement or entertainment or any public place within the Village of Blue Mounds at a time, or in a manner not usual for law-abiding individuals under circumstances that warrant alarm for the safety of persons or property in the vicinity. Among the circumstances which may be considered in determining whether such alarm is warranted is the fact that the actor takes flight on appearance of a peace officer, refuses to identify him or her self, or manifestly endeavors to conceal him or her self or any object. Unless flight by the actor or other circumstances make it impractical, a peace officer shall, prior to any arrest for an offense under this chapter, afford the actor an opportunity to dispel any alarm which would otherwise be warranted, by requesting the actor to identify him or her self and explain the presence and or conduct. No person shall be convicted of an offense under this chapter if the police officer did not comply with the preceding sentence, or if it appears at trial that the explanation given by the actor was true and if believed by the peace officer at the time would have dispelled the alarm.
No parent, spouse or guardian, or other adult person having legal care or custody of a person under the age of 18 years, shall suffer or permit or by inefficient control allow such person to violate the provisions of § 234-1 of this chapter. Provided that any such parent, spouse, guardian or other adult person who shall have made a missing person notification to the law enforcement authorities shall not be considered to have suffered, permitted or allowed any person to be in violation of § 234-1 of this chapter.
No person operating a place of amusement or entertainment within the Village of Blue Mounds or any agent, servant, employee of any such person, shall permit any person under the age of 18 years to enter or loiter in such places of amusement or entertainment unless such person is accompanied by his or her parent, spouse or guardian, or other adult person having legal care or custody of such person.
Any person who shall violate any provision of this chapter shall forfeit an amount as provided under § 1-3 of the Village Code. A person under the age of 18 years shall be referred to the proper authorities as provided by Chapter 938 Wisconsin Statutes.
