An officer was dispatched to the Talmadge Bridge in reference to two men in traffic. He found one man with blood on his clothes who was bleeding from a laceration to the right side of his face, and a second man who was not injured. Both men were heavily intoxicated. Their initial story was that a friend drove them to get cigarettes from the victims car. He said when he left the vehicle, black males in the area began heckling him. The man said he called them god damn n----, at which time he was jumped by four of them. The man changed his story and the number of assailants several times, as did the man with him. The officer said it was evident the men were lying. MedStar responded but the victim refused treatment. The officer documented the incident.
