Arrested For Asking Directions

Baltimore City police arrested a Virginia couple over the weekend after they asked an officer for directions.

WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team reporter David Collins said Joshua Kelly and Llara Brook, of Chantilly, Va., got lost leaving an Orioles game on Saturday. Collins reported a city officer arrested them for trespassing on a public street while they were asking for directions .

"In jail for eight hours -- sleeping on a concrete floor next to a toilet," Kelly said.

"It was a nightmare," Brook said. "I was in there thinking I was just dreaming and waiting to wake up."
Go read the whole thing. Police really do need to realize that this us Vs. them attitude they have is a sure way to make the public hate them.

Yet another reason I avoid Baltimore like the plague. I go across the the Bay Bridge and up 301 when traveling north so I don't have to mess with it.
