Ask A Baltimore Police Officer For Directions? You Better Believe Your Butt Is Going To Be Hauled In
Wish it were an exaggeration. Sadly, it's not. And the story gets worse

A young couple, Joshua Kelly and Llara Brook, of Chantilly, Virginia, found themselves lost while driving  in Baltimore, Maryland. They were relieved, of course, when they spotted a police cruiser.
  • Kelly: "Could you please get us to 95?"
  • Officer Natalie Preston: "You found your own way in here, you can find your own way out."  
Whoa, life's a bitch when asking Baltimore police for help.

When "officer" Preston spotted them asking another officer for directions she decided to bite. She stepped between the couple and the other officer snarling, "My partner is not going to step in front of me and tell you directions if I'm not." Then she fetched their butts to the station where they remained locked up for "trespassing."

"It was a nightmare," said Brook.  "In jail for 8 hours.  Sleeping on a concrete floor next to a toilet."

Wrong one, wrong type of pound

Kelly's car was sent to the police car pound where the police left it both unlocked and with the windows down.  Stuff, of course, was stolen from the car.

Brook's parents are both Pennsylvania police officers.  We'll follow this story and report updates.  Article has video interview with victims.
