The following police incident that unfolded on Tuesday morning in the neighborhood is bizarre even by Southie standards. At approximately 10:45am, a call came into police for menacing group of construction workers jumping out of a pickup truck with crowbars heading towards a house on East Fifth Street between N and O. Evidently they were looking for some sort of fight. Some of the construction workers were shirtless too. Hmmm….
At least a half a dozen police cruisers showed up on the scene. The construction workers were questioned and some of them were “known” to police – for what we are not sure! No arrests were made.
