Baltimore City police arrested a Virginia couple over the weekend after they asked an officer for directions.
Believe it or not, they were arrested for trespassing while on a public street, which I’m pretty sure isn’t even possible. I’d like to hear the officer’s side of the story, and that of the second officer on the scene. It’s possible the couple is lying, but, since they were released without being charged for any crime it doesn’t seem likely that they did anything serious enough to get thrown in jail.
If the facts are as reported it sounds like a classic case of a grumpy cop taking out her frustrations on innocent people. Not the sort of goodwill ambassadors that Charm City needs right now.
