Dyersburg may restrict skateboarding

DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Dyersburg officials are studying whether to outlaw skateboarding on any city property other than a new skateboard park.

Officials say there have been complaints about juveniles skateboarding down hills and on sidewalks.

Additionally, city parks director James Earl Johnson says employees at the skateboard park have trouble enforcing the city's helmet policy.

According to the State Gazette of Dyersburg, the city attorney may draft an ordinance about the issue.
