Sources close to City Hall say that Mayor Pawlowski is furious over the commotion that occurred last Friday at the soirée to celebrate Allentown's arena development. Supposedly, the pursuing police officers were told to stand down by a captain, before they reached the accident area by 6th and Linden. The defendant was a minor drug dealer, and the cops had already secured his license plate number. The story goes that the officers ignored the command, for whatever reason, and continued the chase. Had the police car not been stopped by the encounter with the telephone pole, it might have well plowed into the tent full of dignitaries. While the defendant has been charged with reckless endangerment, should the police also face the same charge?
