I hear video may exist of...
The moment when yours truly told the guy what he was suspected of doing, and then tried to snap his picture through the drivers side window. But I was using my back-up "gangster cam" and it can be slow sometimes. The driver was gone before I got a picture of his face, but he lingered long enough to hear me promise he'd be famous, he'd be on the internet.
Well, I try to keep my promises. Here you go. YOU ARE FAMOUS. YOU ARE ON THE INTERNET.
Actually, the guy didn't get away clean. A resident saw the car some time later at Penn Ave. N., near the Marathon station, and called police. It should be noted the activity of dropping off the suspected hooker took place in plain view of small children engaged in a Labor Day picnic. However, the Fourth Precinct has stepped up enforcement in this area in response to pleas from residents, and things are getting better.
