Youngstown teen arrested for walking in street

Published: Wed, April 30, 2014 @ 2:54 a.m.


Police found a loaded semiautomatic pistol Monday on a South Side street near a man who was cited for walking in the street and obstructing official business.

Officers spotted 18-year-old Marquis Dates of East Dewey Avenue in front of a home in the 100 block of East Avondale Avenue about 7:20 p.m. walking and dancing in the street.

Police stopped him because walking in the street is not allowed unless the sidewalk is not passable. Reports said Dates gave officers a fake name.

Police also found a loaded .25-caliber handgun near him, but Dates was not charged because they could not link the weapon to him. A records check showed the gun was stolen last year, reports said. Officers took the gun for evidence.

First of all, the article is entitled "Youngstown Teen arrested for walking in street." FALSE. He was STOPPED because he was walking in the street, which evidently is a major crime around here. If he were just walking in the street, the cops would've maybe looked in his general direction, but wouldn't have stopped him at all. When he was twirling around like a ballerina in the middle of the street and showing off how high he was, then he was stopped. He was then arrested due to the fact he was hallucinating and obstructing business, by giving a fake name, etc. THAT's why he was arrested. So, let's be clear...he was NOT ARRESTED for walking in the street, so people, please, continue to cross the streets the same way you have been for years!! Again....Vindy journalism at its best!
