Friday evening at approximately 10:23 p.m. an officer on bike was patrolling the area near the WOW Hall, when he noticed Kashon Nathaniel Kohler, age 31, on the sidewalk carrying what appeared to be a clear cup with beer. Because the sidewalks around the WOW Hall are not a licensed premise, the officer contacted Kohler for identification and asked that Kohler be seated on the sidewalk. Kohler complied, but while sitting next to his beer on the sidewalk, he became angry and hit the cup of beer, breaking the cup, which sprayed on the sidewalk. Kohler then crawled away from the officer, and when the officer attempted to stop him, a large disgruntled group formed around the officer, which prompted other officers to the scene for crowd control. Kolher was arrested for Unlawful Consumption, Interfering with Police and Tampering with Physical Evidence.
