LOL! Maybe he shouldn't have been standing on the corner at 3am. Who just stands on the corner, doing nothing, at 3am?

10th and Campbell is

10th and Campbell is considered to be "Downtown"?? Looks to be in a residential area a mile away from the downtown. A little media sensationalism with the headline dontcha think??

No Kidding

I have to agree with both comment. What was he doing standing outside at 3 am??? Also, the news should say in a neighborhood near downtown at least. I was thinking dock or water street.
