DetailsIt was the middle of the afternoon Sunday, and the Art Fair on the Square was in full swing. Thousands of aficionados, and novices, were busy browsing - some purchasing - when trouble started brewing behind the tent of a participating artist. The 48-year old Floridian, a jewelry maker, flagged down an officer as a cantankerous homeless man began to create a stir after sleeping most of the day on a bench behind the proprietor’s display. He began yelling derogatory things to potential customers, saying the artist “was not selling real art,” and that the handmade jewelry was really “mass-produced junk.” The disheveled man next entered the victim’s tent, looked at a customer, and asserted: “all these artists steal from each other, and what you’re buying isn’t real art.”
The responding officer gave the man a chance to leave. The unwanted art critic retorted with sarcasm: “Okay, grandpa. I’ll get on my way cause I don’t want you getting all excited and having a heart attack.” With that he returned to the bench and slowly started putting belongings in a rucksack. He continued to be argumentative, and made it clear he was not really going to move along. The officer grasped the man’s wrist. At this point, he began thrashing, kicking, and shouting: “POLICE, RIOT!” Other officers were in the area dealing with a drug overdose. It was a 26-year old woman who had been found slumped over on a nearby bench. Two officers, dealing with that situation, went to assist with the struggling man. He continued battling with officers on his way to jail, saying he was being “persecuted by fake cops.” Meanwhile, officers returned to the woman with the very constricted pupils. She was groggy, but now awake, claiming she was found unconscious because she was very sleepy from swimming. Drug paraphernalia was found in her purse, and she also has a couple of open drug cases. Both suspects ended up being moved about a block, from Capitol Square benches to the County Jail.
