Fanfan, who she claims was wearing headphones, did not respond initially. He became angry and according to the meter maid, yelled at her that she couldn't tell him what to do, and hit her with the door of his cab, knocking her backwards. The driver was arrested and charged with assault-and-battery of a public servant, and assault-and-battery with a dangerous weapon. Police say they found a BJ's Wholesale Club card on him, and are attempting to locate the owner.

Police were patrolling Brookline Village following a number of house breaks in the area, and were told that a man, described as a thin black male with a Yankees cap and a wooden cane, had just entered a Toxteth Street home at about 1:45 p.m. An officer in the area responded less than a minute later, and found a man fitting his description. The officer noted he was being followed by a white man on the street, who told the officer that the other man, who police identified as Manning, had been in his back yard and around the back door. A resident of the street said she had been eating lunch and heard the back door open, and thought it was a man working on trees in her yard, but saw it was an intruder--who she also identified as Manning. Police spoke with other witnesses, and then arrested and charged Manning with trespassing and breaking-and-entering in the daytime with the intent of committing a felony.
