Big Bottle-Throwing Brawl in Billyburg
30 kids brawled at the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg bridge Thursday, and Free Williamsburg has two eyewitness accounts. One is from someone who was, briefly, there, and saw bottles flying and kids running into moving traffic. Another is from someone who was in the ER for an unrelated matter and chatted up a youngster who said he was there (as an "innocent bystander," of course) and that when the kids started hurling bottles, this one cop? He totally ran away. Can't wait till Thee Rant weighs in on this. (The latest CompStat report says felonious assaults and robberies in the hipster paradise are slightly up over last year.
