The summer season got off to a chaotic start at the Jersey Shore with police responses at at least three of the state's most popular boardwalks over Memorial Day weekend.

Wildwood, Ocean City and Seaside Heights all had incidents requiring police responses on Saturday or Sunday, ranging from a false alarm about a shooter that sent crowds running to a stabbing of a 15-year-old in a large brawl.
