City police called out
Unpleasant experiences seem to abound when the Yankees come to town and reader Sarah Chenoweth had one of them.
It's ten PM on a Friday night and an O's vs. Yankees game has just let out. This explains why I sat on Lombard Street in between Charles and Eutaw for forty minutes; it doesn't explain the complete lack of traffic police at downtown intersections.
I watched cars block the passage of light rail trains down Howard Street and Rescue Co. 1's equipment from Steadman Station because a handful of intoxicated Yankees fans decided to deliberately block two lanes of Lombard Street in front of the Holiday Inn. Since when does the out-of-control traffic after a Friday night prime ball game not warrant a police presence at major intersections?
