Word on the street is that a rookie CMPD officer blue lighted and stopped His Honor Mayor Anthony Foxx yesterday morning. Rumor has it that the mayor made an illegal turn uptown at the square.
Apparently Mayor Foxx was able to convince the rookie officer that it would be in the officer's best interest to let the matter slide. Apparently Mayor Foxx didn't also suggest that the issue be kept on the down low.
Everyone knows neither left or right turns are permitted at the square because of the large number of pedestrians. Could it be that the Mayor has an "I'm the Mayor so I can do what I want card"?
No word from the Mayor's office this morning, or from CMPD but we'll keep you posted.
