Here’s The Scoop … 2 Strikes …. And Counting ….

IT’S A GIVEN …..

Dear Readers…Did you wonder last weekend …. what’s up with the pavilion…is it shoddy workmanship…or terrible tourists…poor maintenance…what’s with the posts?…

Well, not this time…it was STRIKE 2!…

In the wee hours of Friday morning approx. 2:30 am…there was a high speed  chase with the Oakland Park BSO pursuing criminals who had just robbed Radio Shack on Federal Highway…from what this writer gathered from a few accounts of those who observed, caught it on tape or spoke to those who were there…is the following…

The criminals broke into the Radio Shack and the BSO  was right there in the vicinity…BSO took off after them heading east towards LBTS down Commercial Blvd….as they prepared to make the turn in front of  the pavilion the BSO did some incredible driving and succeeded in a pretty calculated move…it is said the police car got to the left of the get away car in the turn and hit it on the driver’s side…it flipped on its side and slid into the center of the pavilion (pics of incredible minimum damage below)…The police then caught the guys…..

This is strike 2 for that area…earlier  during construction it was a tractor trailer…(prev. post) ….So that being said is 3 strikes the one that will take the pavilion down?….
