From the Star Tribune’s South Metro Police Blotter:
Disturbing the peace. A man reportedly was break-dancing in the middle of a turning lane near Annapolis Street E. and Robert Street S. When a woman first saw him, she thought he was a dog because he was on all fours. Another man on the side of the road was encouraging him.
When I was in Memphis recently we were staying at a very inexpensive Extended Stay Suites in what some would consider “the wrong side of the tracks”. While driving around that part of town trying to find an appropriate stash of Yuengling to buy in bulk and take back home with me I ran into two apparent crackheads dancing in the middle of the street in different areas of town. While the guy in the blotter above had encouragement, these two seemed to be alone and totally oblivious to their surroundings. What was more incredible was the fact that the majority of those driving around were oblivious to the fact that there were crackheads in the middle of a busy 6 lane road.
I have traveled all over the place and while I have run into people doing stupid things in the middle of the road I have to admit my experiences in Memphis and the one reported in the blotter above top anything I had ever seen before. What strange things have you seen people do in the street before? Has anyone done anything that nearly got them killed but had you laughing anyway?
