No, I wasn’t there.
No, I can’t say whether she acted in a way that frightened the police officer into thinking she was a danger to him or to others to the extent that she was committing a crime, or otherwise behaving in some way that required or permitted her to be handcuffed under the law.
But I can’t wait to hear how the officer explains the rationale for handcuffing this woman and putting her in jail. The reports say that she was verbally stating what others in her business’s area have been feeling re: the effect on businesses along the Euclid Corridor project.
Since neither this article or this one indicates what it is exactly that Mary did that made the police officer feel she’d broken the law and needed to be handcuffed, we have to wait for more information. Or talk to Mary directly I would guess. Or see the police report. One of the articles says that Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson knows about the situation – not sure what that will mean.
