From the Washington Post:
“Eva Nash said she and her husband heard loud shouts outside of their house on the 1200 block of Neal Street NE shortly after 11 p.m. They looked out to see a crowd of 20 to 30 people of various ages on the street and sidewalks, with at least three separate fights occurring. Nash watched as one fighter body-slammed another onto her Mini Cooper, denting the hood.”
The report says the Nash family was unimpressed with the MPD officer’s response as none of the combatants were detained. The family that filed the complaint were also told “that officers are told not to engage with large crowds if it might put them in danger” according to the Post report.
Perhaps MPD needs to send more than one officer to a report of a brawl involving 20 to 30 people?
