HYANNIS – Sometimes cops want to ask young adults “what in the Wide World of Sports were you just thinking?” Last night was one of those situations, where police received a call about a black Audi driving around downtown Hyannis with man sitting on the roof, legs dangling through the sunroof, waiving an American flag, and shouting “USA!” USA had just defeated Ghana 2-1 in day 5 of the World Cup…At least one witness phoned police after the Audi turned off Main Street and eventually onto South Street, traveling at speeds of 35 to 40 MPH… with a passenger still sitting on the roof holding a flag in such a way that it filled up with air and acted like a parachute… it’s a miracle he wasn’t killed.
First question is how long after the game ended did this happen? Are we talking minutes? Because I feel like you have at least a 10 minute celebratory grace period in situations like these. I mean the entire country was celebrating and going bonkers. Jumping in your car and waving an American Flag is as American as it gets. Espeically on the Cape where I feel like everything is double American. Obviously it’s a bit different if they were shitfaced, but the police report says they had beer in the car, but they didn’t get arrested for a DUI which makes me think they were sober. So basically they just got arrested for being too pro America. Probalby was a Ghananian who tipped of the cops. NARC city.
